Madhouse Diaries : Cheers and Tears at the Amusement Park

You can't go to Hastings and not pay a visit to the amusement park on the seafront. (Well, we can't anyway !)

Now, if you ask Madhouse Grandad, he'll tell you that he only went on with the kids because he had to.

But just one look at his face shows that he was having as much fun as they were ! 

The next time we came down, Pierre wanted to get in on the action too.

So Madhouse Daddy was called in for reinforcements and accompanied Juliette.

Sophie stayed with Auntie Em.


It's a shame it was windy because you can't hear Pierre, who was giggling his head off non-stop !

On a roll now, Pierre was adamant that - as he was a big boy, as proven by the height restriction line - he wanted to go on the Hip Hop with the girls. I told him he wouldn't like it but it was impossible to put him off.

At first, it was all smiles.


But he soon lost his smile. Now I am such a bad mummy, you can hear me laughing all the way through this video - sorry !!

He needed a big cuddle to get over it.

But it didn't last long and he finished off with a gentler ride to get his smile back (while the girls went on the Hip Hop again !).

Guess who fell asleep from all the excitement when we got home - I'll give you a clue, it wasn't Pierre !!

  1. Looks like you all had a lovely day, I like amusements too especially the bumper cars but some of those larger rides look too scary for me!

  2. Looks like you had a great day.

  3. I'm with Pierre, I wouldn't be happy on that thing. I'd probably be feeling utterly sick. Lots of lovely memories with your family.
