First of all, I'd just like to point out that there WAS in fact a height requirement for this ride and he met it. Secondly, there is no merit to this post other than I could see this unfolding as I was taking pictures and I laughed so hard, I snorted my $7 Cherry Limeade up my nose.
The ride? The Pirate Ship, as Rowan now refers to it as, "That Horrible Boat Thing." If you do not know what the Pirate Ship is, or does, then you have obviously not attended a State or County Fair any time in the last 30 or so years. The Pirate Ship heaves you back and forth until your stomach physically separates itself from the rest of your body. It makes you vomit, that's what it does. That's it, there's no other purpose. But, they wanted to ride it, so I said yes.
Here we are buckled in, before the ride starts moving. Faces looking a little apprehensive, but so far so good.
See? Obvious fun. That look is a little bit on the line between I'M HAVING SO MUCH FUN and also I'M ABOUT TO START CRYING, but there's really no cause for alarm.
