Summer Evenings at the Fair

25/365: Twirl Ride


I am loving Summer evenings! Tonight we went out to the local Fireman’s Fair, which helps to raise money for our fire dept. Seeing Ian look at the rides for the first time was priceless.

Ian amazed at the rides

He was in awe and wanted to see how they worked. He and I would finish riding the ride then he would be touching everywhere to check it out. It was hard to tell if he like the ride because he didn’t squeal but I think he did.

It was nice to be able to spend some time with my mom on the Ferris Wheel and the added bonus is we only had to spend 4 tickets on a 5 ticket ride and we rode for at least 10minutes! ChaChing!

My sister wasn’t into riding much since she gets sick on spinney things but I found the slide to go on with her. My first time hopping in a bag and going down a slide. It was a blast but didn’t last long enough.

Too bad I couldn't get my Dad to ride any rides, but he did pay for them and took the pictures of us on the Ferris Wheel and the slide. Thanks Dad!

Of course when you go to a fair you have to grab yourself a funnel cake (my Mom’s fav.) This is one of the biggest one’s I have ever seen!

Overall, it was a great evening and the time you get to spend with your family is the times you really cherish. I wish my Hubby could have been there though. Miss you!

Off topic (as usual!), it was time to get Ian some new shoes because little feet just grow too fast. It had to be the famous Chucks!

I picked him up one in red for his size now and the one in the next size in black. You can’t go wrong with a classic shoe.

Speaking of things I got him, I picked him up a Wall-E shirt for $4!! It is not so much that he likes Wall-E but that his Mom saw the movie trailer and fell in love with all that mechanical robot cuteness.

"Some of the front"

Now I can go up to Ian and say “Come here WALL-E.” Haha, I know I am crazy. Maybe it is the way they say Wall-E in the commercial with the emphasis on the e. Whatever it is. I had to bring my child into it.
