Again? {Not-so-wordy Wednesday}


I don’t know anyone who didn’t love the escalator as a kid. There’s something about going up and down on that moving staircase – it feels like an amusement park ride when you’re small.

I remember my older cousins taking me on the escalator over and over again while our moms did some Christmas shopping. Before long, I became the older one, holding my baby brother’s hand as we rode up and down together.

Twenty years later, there’s a new little hand to hold. But the ride is still the same.

Hubs, Quinn and I went to the mall a couple weekends ago in search of new shoes for Mommy (more on that later), and we arrived a little too early. This is how we killed time waiting for the stores to open.


At the top and bottom of each ride, Q asked “Again?”

Of course, kiddo. We can go again.


Linking up with the fabulous Alison from Writing, Wishing and Gailt from These Little Waves for their monthly Memories Captured Series. {See other Memories Captured posts.}

  1. Such a great memory. I love repeating my childhood memories with my kids. It's fun. And yes, I love riding on an escalator. The moving walk ways at the airport in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami are a favorite.

    1. Ah yes, the airport. Those moving walkways are the best way to occupy a busy child when your flight is delayed!

  2. OMG my toddler IS EXACTLY THE SAME! Other kids go to the park, mine goes escalator surfing (that's what his dad calls it).

  3. Who needs expensive amusement parks when all you need to do is get to the mall early! :-)

    1. Exactly! I'm thinking this saves us a ton of money on family vacations. :)

    1. Totally! Quinn could also ride in the shopping cart all day long... as long as it's moving, anyway. As soon as we hit the checkout line, the fun is over. :)

  5. So cute. I miss those days. My kids are 11 and 13. No more escalator surfing around here. Maybe I should try to bring it back. :)

    P.S. I read your about page and noticed that you are a former Michigander. Where are you from?

  6. One of the wonderful things about hanging out with small ones is how they help you see the adventure in the every day.
