Yesterday I went to Great America with my friend "Fast Jerry". He got free tickets from his work and asked me if I wanted to go. It had been a couple years so I was due to ride some Rollercoasters. I love Rollorcoasters! I don't care for most other rides especially the ones that just go in circles. They give me a headache.
The lines really were not that bad. We saw a few other Ultrarunner friends there. It's nice to see other runners outside of a race.
I think my favorite ride was really not a ride, but it was a 3D Sponge Bob square pants movie where you actually had to put a seat belt on because your seat moved around. I haven't laughed so much in a long time. It was so funny. I remembered back ,as I looked around at all the kids with their parents especially the ones with their Dads. I thought how my Dad loved doing stuff with me like that when I was little. I had flash backs of us having fun like that.
I thought of him a lot yesterday because it was the 25 anniversary of his death. I remembered all the fun we had when I was little ,and was a bit sad of all the fun we have missed out on for the past 25 years. I know in my heart he is with me watching and laughing at me going she's 42 and sure knows how to have fun. My Dad taught me that it's ok to let your inner child live on the outside, and not keep it in.
He was like a big kid himself always joking around with me.
I sure do miss him, but I make sure everyday that I celebrate the short time I had with him.
