I took the boys for their first visit to Como town, a small amusement park next to the Como Zoo in St. Paul. It was sorta fun but, in my view, unsustainably expensive for our family and I'm guessing most. That said, we did have fun. Went on a rides. We went on old fashioned tilt-a-whirl. Art and Lewis were both a little scared about the idea since neither have experience riding stuff like that. But once it started we started spinning with great force and we were all barrel laughing and sticking to the seat like glue. I laughed real hard and remember looking down at my two boys and being so proud of them and so happy they were in my life.
After we searched around for other rides, rode a couple (including the cars), but ultimately Arthur really wanted to ride the tilt-a-whirl again. And after I heard him talk about it I realized why. He wanted to see me laugh really hard again. He just loves to watch his parents laugh and he'll do whatever he can to make it happen over and over.
