We spent a recent fall Saturday taking the kids on the rides at Jenkinson’s Boardwalk in Point Pleasant. It is THE place to go for shore food, rides and fun.
It’s become an end of shore season tradition - heading to the boardwalk to ride the rides, devour some boardwalk eats, and pick up some sweets!
I wasn’t sure if Henry would be big enough for the rides, but once we arrived, it was clear that there was NO way he wasn’t going on the rides. He was practically leaping out of his stroller.
Penelope is sort of in between the kiddie rides and the big rides. She was very content to take Henry on the rides, and I’m glad she got one last year on the kiddie stuff. Next year she will for sure exceed the maximum height limit. And I’m already crying.
I’m so glad that I stopped a stranger and asked her to snap a quick photo of all of us. I am usually the one behind the camera and I rarely do this because I don’t want to bother anyone and don’t want to seem vain. But, now that I have this picture after the fact, I’m SO happy I did! We weren’t on a big vacation and it wasn’t a momentous occasion - just a normal Saturday out doing something fun as a family. I know someday my kids will be so happy to have photos of all of us together. I’m going to make an effort to do that more.
Back on the trucks. This was by far Henry’s favorite ride!
It was such a fun day, and I’m so glad we’ve started to make this an annual post summer tradition!
Also past Jenkinson’s fun giving me all the feels.
