My favorite part of the summer was always when my parents took us to Six Flags. It was a big deal; the whole family would pile into the car and make the hour drive talking about what rides we would go on and what shows we would see. And I would always bounce around the back screaming that I wanted a HUGE lollipop, as I was the typical youngest child.
We would finally enter the park after what seemed like days of waiting, and my elder sister and I would take off at a run for the candy cart and stand there all jittery waiting for our parents to catch up. I would always get the Jumbo Lollipop and she would get cotton candy. I savored that lollipop. I always kept the wrapper on the stick so I could go on a ride and not have to worry about it getting buggy while my mother held it for me.
It always lasted through the entire day at the park and then on the ride back I would finish it to make the fun day last though the car ride. ~ Holli from Illinois
