A visit to the Victorian Gardens

Copyright Monica L. Shulman

I loved going to amusement parks when I was a kid. Cotton candy, crazy rides, staying up super late and playing a bunch of games hoping to win a hideously large (and just plain hideous) stuffed animal. Lucia is still too small to truly appreciate the kitschy summer fun of a big amusement park but in the meantime she loved the Victorian Gardens when we took her there last month.

Victorian Gardens is located inside Central Park and it's a small version of the parks that we visited growing up. We spend the majority of our summer days running outdoors, playing at the water parks and in the sand box so this was a fun alternative for her and really unexpected. With the flying airplanes, choo-choo train on a track and more than one ice cream man, Lucia was half in shock and in complete over-stimulation mode. It's got loud music, lots of space to run around and it's got the best skyline as a view. We went for a private party but we definitely agreed that we're going to go back before summer is over if for no other reason then I just can't get her beautiful smile when she went on her first ride out my head (not that I would ever want to).

She was strapped in tight and it definitely looks like it's much higher than it actually was.  She was SO excited and clearly I was too!
