A Thousand Thumbs Down Thursday


Mother's Day, 2009--So the Boardwalk has it's downfalls. My Boy cried, "STOP" the first time he was on this ride with Hubby, they stopped the ride to let him get off. Giving it another try with Cousin T, they both jumped ship shortly after the ride began. Just too nauseating! Hopefully my son will remember next time we go to just avoid it completely.

    I've been there myself, little dude. It's ok to say no to nausea. *high five*

  2. ~*~ Melissa ~*~ said...

    Yay, I'm first! Happy ATWT! That is such a funny pic, my boys are the complete oposite. They love the thrill of scary rides (well carnival and water rides at least, we haven't taken them on roller coasters yet.)

  3. Joe and Leanna said...

    Well, mom, at least he 'tried' and twice even! I'm proud of him.

  4. Martha (FL) said...

    Great picture. I'm with them.. I get nauseous on just about everything! When we go places with a group, I'm the one who sits with all the stuff!!!

    I did my first Thousand Words Thursday and used a pic of my dh in the nursery after my son was born. I Love this pic and it is so moving to me. Thanks for the challenge. God Bless and check mine out if you have time.

    Guess they don't have DQ to give them pointers!!

  7. itsahumanzoo said...

    They'll try it again. My husband still does even though they make him sick. :)

  8. Mrs4444 said...

    Yeah, I'm not a big fan of puking, either. Unfortunately, though, as I age, most of the rides do that to me!

  9. Amy@Bitchin'WivesClub said...

    These nauseating ones were my FAVORITE carnival rides when I was a kid.... Now, after three kids, I just can't take them anymore. *ralph*

    *~*

  10. Kim said...

    Ugh, I get nauseated just thinking about how that ride would go - and, no, I don't normally suffer motion sickness. lol

  11. 4 Lettre Words said...

    Too cute! Love, love, love the glasses!!!

    Happy ATWT, Mom.

  12. Semi-Slacker Mom said...

    Again. Where's the funnel cake ride?

  13. Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

    I rode a similar ride at the Seattle Center when I was a kid - since my tummy was pretty much upside down for the rest of the day, I totally steered clear of it in later years...so maybe your son will remember to do the same! ;)

  14. Proud Mommy said...

    awww, poor guy!!!

  15. Swoozie said...

    It's great that he gave it another shot but maybe it is time to give up the ride and maybe try it again in a few more years! The Boardwalk sounds like a fun place!

    Have a great Thursday!

  16. Amy A.K.A. "The Mrs." said...

    Oh, I would be giving thumbs down right there with him. I'm not much of a thrill seeker when it comes to anything that resembles a spinning, dipping, climbing, diving ride. ;)

  17. Dee said...

    LOL! That is too funny!

  18. Erin said...

    That is funny! Bummer on the ride. lol

  19. Kristen Andrews said...

    a lot of rides do the same to me and now as an adult I just don't do them

  20. Gena said...

    lol boys never learn.

  21. Leslie said...

    I used to love all those rides when I was a kid, and then as a teenager. And then as an adult. Something happened to me. I get all queasy when I even look at them. Forget about riding them. What the heck happened to me? Is this normal? Yikes~ Cute picture. I'm wondering though, how they heard him yelling stop for them to let him off the 1st time. Those places and rides are usually very loud. I guess your boy has some pipes, and maybe daddy helped too? ;) Hope you have a great day!

  22. Lindsay said...

    hehe okay it sad that it makes them sick.. but I loved that they stopped for a photo opt!

  23. Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

    Ooh yeah...that ride'll make you lose your lunch every time!

  24. Sweet Serendiptiy said...

    Oh, that's hilarious. Too funny. Great pic ;D

  25. Former Fat Chick said...

    you husband is so nice....Mine would have been yelling: Come on wussy's suck it up! Yeah, he's that guy..

  26. Heather Happymaker said...

    Is that the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk? I used to LOVE going there!

  27. Miranda said...

  29. Henrietta said...

    Poor kiddos! At least they gave it another go! I would never make it, scared of heights!

  30. MamaJoss said...

    Wow it must have been THAT BAD to get a double thumbs down...especially from your fearless crew there!

  31. Sally said...

    Great Pic, Great idea!! I'm in and I've linked to you also!! Can't wait to see everyone's ATWT pics!! Thanks!!

  32. Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

    Our family loves Santa Cruz. Just not all the rides!! I agree with the boys on this one.

    It's suppose to be a hot one in Santa Cruz this weekend! Yeah!!!

  33. **WE BLOG ARTISTS** said...

  34. MommaD said...

    how easily they forget, but know you have photographic proof for a reminder!

  35. April said...

    EWWWWW.....I think I've rode that one........and it made me puke!

    Happy ATWT!

  36. Shawn said...

    Oh yeah, I love crazy rides but that one ...probably not so much.

    I got lots of pics in my thursday story! ;o)

  37. Rob said...

    At least they tried. Twice. i would not have even went near that thing. LOL. I am a wimp.

  38. Shana said...

    Actually the only baby in there was our son and that is Dad reflecting I think on everything that had just happened. they had just finished weighing and measuring and all that after he got to carry him to the nursery from the OR cuz I had to have a csection after 2 days and no dilation. We tried for 12 years before we had him and I think it was just a lot of emotions and very overwhelming. he said he was crying and I wish I was there with him but I was a little occupied...lol! Thanks for the comment!

  39. Domestic Goddess (In Training) said...

    I wish I could record my stepdaughter's reaction after rides like this, because she never believes me when I repeat how much she HATED it.

  40. Otter Thomas said...

    Most rides are too nauseating for me too. But the beach in your post yesterday looks right up my alley.

    Linked here from another Thousand Words Thursday post. Love all the pics.

  41. Frantic Holly said...

    So proud that he at least tried. I would have taken one look and ran.

  42. Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

    I love scary rides. Maybe next time they'll love it, or at least maybe they stay on a bit longer. ;)

  43. JamericanSpice said...

    It's totally alright to try and then say no :) Especially no to nausea!

  44. Stacy said...

    I used to love rides like that, now I can't even ride the elevator without getting naseaus! Maybe too many years of riding bad rides! Maybe they'll remember that the next time (but probably not) :)

  45. Michelle said...

    Great picture! lol I posted my first TWT, don't know if it was a thousand words or not, but I tried!

  46. Together We Save said...

    Nope not the high stuff. Or the spinning stuff

  47. Mommy said...

    What a cute pic! I'm not sure I could handle that one either.
    I'm joining you for ATWT for the first time this week! Great idea!

  48. Sweet Mama Jones said...

    I love that he tried a second time though, thats moxxy!

  49. Michelle said...

    Leave it to me to take it literally! lol

  50. Jennifer said...

    Woah! They stopped the ride so he could get off? Now THAT is cool. I hate being scared on rides. I always beg someone to let me off, but I suppose it's too late once the rollercoaster is on the decent...

    GO A's!!!

  51. Anissa said...

    I so don't like anything that makes me sick! TFS

  52. He And Me + 3 said...

    Lovin the thumbs down from both. Maybe next year they will skip it all together. Maybe?

  53. kasandria said...
