Such a great day!
Today we started out at the Allan Herschell Carrousel Museum in North Tonawanda, NY. It was very cool!
There were different sections inside and one section was all about the making of carrousel horses. It was so interesting! There was a movie and I could easy have stayed to watch it all, but the boys being young boys were ready to move on... so I did too. :)
There was a room filled with early to recent versions of carrousel animals...
They also had an old time carrousel which was built in 1916 and was one of the first three built at this site. In 1916 it would have cost $5,000. They each got a wooden carrousel token to ride with admission.
But the great woman running it allowed them to go a second time!
From there we stopped for lunch and then drove back up nearer our house to go to Carrousel Park at Olcott Beach, NY. The park is simply amazing! It has old time kiddie rides (about 7 different ones) and is completely run by volunteers. All rides cost one ticket and each ticket costs... 25 CENTS!
Unfortunately Olivia was too tall... downfall of being tall enough to ride all the rollercoasters!
Old school skeeball was a quarter though... bonus!
I loved this sign...
After riding, we walked down the block a bit to the beach itself...
Liam was about to get knocked down by a wave and Olivia "saved" him! LOL
We plan to come back with suits soon!
As we were walking back to our car, a woman running one of the rides asked the boys if they'd ride again to be part of a commercial they are making for the park!
Braeden was cheesing it up and waving to the camera... he thinks they're going to be rich and famous!
Very fun day!!!
