Journalling reads: While Daddy used to go off and ride his thrill rides, and rollercoasters we used to go off and do our own thing. Sometimes that mean’t me finding a seat while you rode on kiddy rides alone, but usually once it started getting dark that mean’t at least one ride together on the carousel. The rides always lasted a long time then because it was never very busy. You loved the lights and the music and I liked the chance to warm up a little bit and have a rest. You always asked to sit in one of the spinning seats. They had leatherette bench seats and a wheel in the centre to make the whole seat spin around. You would beg me to spin it around super fast until you couldn’t take it anymore. Then you would tell me very loudly and panic everyone else on the ride “stop it, I am going to throw up” before laughing and telling me to spin it again. It was always really nice for us to get the chance to do this together. Whenever you rode the carousel with your Daddy you always insisted he pick you up and put you on one of the horses. I couldn’t manage to lift you up onto those so this was kind of our special little thing for us to do together.
