My earliest memories of summer back a long, long time ago include the yearly trip to our local theme park -- Six Flags Over Texas.
Some of the best memories I have of childhood include my time spent there.
This year Six Flags Over Texas is having it's 50th anniversary.
Yesterday my husband and I took our three children and we spent a fun filled day making memories.
For the first time my son Nash (who is my middle child and thrill seeker) was tall enough to ride some of the "big kid" rides.
So I talked him into riding the park's oldest wooden roller coaster, The Judge Roy Scream.
The Judge opened in 1980 and I was a rider that year it first opened. In subsequent years, I probably rode that coaster 60 times. And yesterday for the first time -- my own little guy rode it with me.
It made me laugh and smile at the joy and excitement he gained! And it brings a tear to my eye to think that maybe one day when he looks back on his life he will remember.
Time is fleeting. Capture the moment. Enjoy today...and remember.
Thanks for taking the time.
