What a fun 4th of July we had this year! It started off even earlier because J took an extra 1/2 day on Thursday. Woot-woot!!
Our little town has a small carnival that rolls in every year for a few days over the 4th of July. The rides are exactly the same as when I was growing up and attending...perhaps even some of the workers are the same too. Ha!
Since we had just been to Idlewild, riding rides was fresh in everyone's mind. Since it was Thursday afternoon, there were hardly any crowds which made it even nicer.
The Noodle and I went on the spinney rides and since there weren't any "roller coasters" J was the photographer. Such a good sport ;) Mei Mei had fun on the rides which were her size too.
So this ride didn't look too bad. Lifts you up, spins you around, dips up and down a bit and then back to the ground. Piece of cake.
Except this is how we felt when we got off of it! Ha!
Look at the look on this little turkey's face! What a doll :)
The potato sack slide is always a fun one, so J went on that with the Noodle.
All that excitement, plus an 8 minute ride home, left us with this. Zonked out, poor baby!
On Friday, we did a few errands in the morning and then hung out at home the rest of the day.
Eating a picnic lunch in the park is always on the agenda!
Some exploration with worms, centipedes (!!) and pillbugs. Ewww, gross!
A walk down to the pier to look at the Lake. It was gorgeous!
After our walk we headed back home to decorate the bikes for the bike parade the next day. I accidentally picked up permanent double sided tape and we didn't realize until we were almost finished decorating. I have a sneaking suspicion that our embellishments may be on for quite a while!
Part 2 coming up next!
