Whirlwind Weekend

Last weekend was super busy for us.  It started on Friday with preschool, a Halloween party for Wildman to go to, Zumba for me and a local fair at night.  Saturday found us at an early morning soccer game then two consecutive birthday parties.  J came home on Saturday from a week-long business trip to DC as well.  I passed him on the way to our first birthday party.  On Sunday, I attended and help teach a 3-hour Zumbathon at a local gym then rushed home to shower so I could attend services for a friend’s mother who passed away.

Whew!  Just typing all of that out makes me tired.

The only photos I have from the weekend are from the fair.  So, here we go.

We rode the sketchy Ferris Wheel first.  The operator stopped us at the top three times.  It was windy and dark.  I gripped the handle bar until my knuckles turned white…  This was not my favorite experience of the night.  The boys, of course, loved it and wanted to do it again…  We distracted them with promises of cotton candy and lemonade.

There were tons of kiddie-size rides for the boys.  We did all of the ones that were working.  The dragon spinning ride was out of operation which was probably for the best since we didn’t really need a bunch of dizzy kids hopped up on sugar.

Crazy Bus!

I didn’t really care for the light bulb eyes on this ride…  They freaked me out a little bit.

All in all it was a good night. We did as much as 4 sheets of tickets would let us.  Sure, some of the carnies were pretty strange but I expected that and ignored them accordingly.  The boys had a blast and cannot wait to go back next year.  That’s what it’s all about anyway.

And look who came home with a goldfish!  Cousin B was gifted this little guy by a friendly fair patron.  Steph was less than thrilled…

Cousin B was over the moon, naturally!
