Target Shooting at the Theme Park in Kaliningrad.
We had some time to kill before the rugby match and decided to take a walk through the theme park. I didn’t even know there was a theme park – or maybe I have seen it before but I just didn`t take notice. Anyway, it was a beautiful afternoon and as we walked through the park we heard children squealing with delight. They thoroughly enjoyed the rides and I curiously watched the moms holding their breaths.
The rides they had there were not in the teenager category, in fact I didn`t see any youngsters around. They were all on the `other` side of the park close to the kissing bridge. My camera caught a pretty young girl. She must have been 5 or 6. She saw the ice cream stand and quickly ran over there. It didn`t take her long to drag her mom over there.
To my shock the little princess, whom I snapped a few moments ago, turned into a little brat. She screamed and shouted because her mom got her a green ice cream and she wanted a pink one. The mom was not going to stand for this and she told her in no uncertain terms to eat the green ice cream. She stopped the wailing but she still sulked. Andrey and I couldn`t believe the quick change.
Who is taking home the prize?
As we turned the corner we saw target shooting. They had adorable teddy bears and I was sure my husband would shoot all 21 targets and let me take home the big bear. Andrey`s friend however was sure he would be winning the bear so both men got ready. Olga and I gave each other a knowing look and took place behind the men in our lives.
The men took turns and did very well but as they advanced to the 3rd row, the targets became smaller and it was more difficult to concentrate. We applauded them and both ladies left with a key ring each. It was fun and we all had a good laugh about our key rings!
