Second class citizen

During our recent vacation in Cape May, we spent an afternoon at the Wildwood amusement park. It was nice to go to the park, if only to confirm every bad stereotype about New Jersey I had ever been privvy to. You see, we spent almost all of our time in Cape Cod, and that town is super charming. Victorian homes line the streets and the beach is beautiful.

But Wildwood? Well, it's just a wee bit on the trashy side. But no matter. There were cars that went in circles that the little people could be strapped into which provided a couple of hours of fun. Note that Connor insisted that Helen ride on the back of the tractor rather than sitting with him.

Later, he allowed her to ride front-facing in a boat, but she had to sit in the backseat.

In spite of the second-class citizen treatment, and the surly look on her face, Helen had a great time and was hard to get away from the rides.



  1. Is Connor already feeling the "I don't want to be the dorky loving big brother in public" vibe?! Never would've thunk it of him!!

  2. I had to enlarge the picture to get a better look at Helen's face and she looks equal parts pissed off and resigned!
