Our quaint little town has an annual festival called Strawberry Days. There are all sorts of activities, like children's parades, fishing, craft boutique, big parade, rodeo, and of course, the carnival. Mom and I went toured the craft fair yesterday. It was a very good thing that I took a limited amount of cash and that none of those booths took American Express! This afternoon, we took the kids to see it and maybe ride a few of the attractions.
First choice was the Carousel. This was something that da Boo talked about all year long.
Doesn't she look like she's having fun?
And the Boy was pretty excited about riding a horse, too.
This is what happens when the Man attempts to take my picture...
The train was next.
The Boy was very excited about this one! Da Boo liked the fact that she got to ride in the engine and pull the handle that rung the bell. We have no good pictures of her because another little boy sat on the other side of her and was also very excited about ringing the bell.
After rides came games!
In this game, the kids got to pick a ducky out of the pond and then they got to choose a prize.
Da Boo named her bird Georgina and the Boy will get to see just how fun those balls can be the next time he runs through the sprinklers.
Time for one last ride for da Boo (because Mommy didn't give her 2 tickets on the carousel...). Then we headed home, very hot and tired but we had a fun time!
