Broken Coin Rides

We went out to eat yesterday and there were some coin-operated rides outside the restaurant. Well, of course, the little ones pitched a holy fit to ride them so I put them on the merry-go-round, stuck three quarters in the slot and the darn thing wouldn't start! Instead of disappointing the kids with a cheap-o broken ride, I told the bigger kids to push it around and sing songs.

Yes, they did it. Those are some wonderful big sisters!

The funniest part of it all were the odd looks we kept getting from the people passing by. It was hysterical. Check out the video.

Way to make some lemonade out of lemons - too bad you had to loose 75 cents first, though!

We have a mechanical boat at one of our local grocery stores and my kids don't even know that it is motorized because I've never put money in it, they just sit and pretent to be boat captains while it sits still! :) Maybe I'm too much of a penny pincher sometimes, but I am glad that they are developing good imaginations.
