The Dragon Wagon rides again

Wednesday was our chosen day to hit the Royal Show, which meant another ride on the “Dragon Wagon”. The doctors say that my ears will recover from the screaming in a week or two.

Children are not created equal. When I was younger, I thought of children as personality-free vessels that absorbed the world around them and who grew into their differences. Now I’m beginning to really grasp just how different two young children can be.

I know, I know; I’m a slow learner.

Romilly wanted to go on the kiddie roller-coaster and dodgem cars (though was too little to do so), Ely wanted to go on the carousel and passed on a free dodgem token. Romilly loved the precision driving team and the Asimo demonstration, Ely gazed at the Arabian horses and drooled over all of the over-sized, stuffed toys available.

Luckily, there are a few things that impress all children: show-bags, cute baby animals, and giant, fiery explosions in the sky.
