Scenes From a Small Town Carnival

May 18, 2012

Last Friday my parents took all of the kids to a carnival that is run
by their local fire company each year.

Sarah, Aidan, and Ashton have all experienced the joys of this carnival in the years past so they knew what to expect, but this was Reagan's first time!

Helpin her sister off the ride Collage BLOG
She was a little overwhelmed and hesitant at first, but she absolutely LOVED the rides!
I think we have another thrill-seeker on our hands:)

Car Ride at the Carnival BLOG
The cars were a huge hit with all 4 of the kids and we had visions of them at "16" swirling in our heads as we watched them go round and round!

Macungie Carnival Collage 2 BLOG
There were a few rides that Reags was still not tall enough to go on by herself and she had a mini meltdown as she watched her sister and cousins making the long climb up the stairs of the big yellow Super Slide while she was left standing at the gate with us. Pat came to the rescue and told her he would go with her..... The tears disappeared and that frown was instantly turned upside-down as she came zipping down the slide safely in the arms of her Daddy!!

Me and My Daddy Walking In the Park FINAL BLOG
After many trips to the ticket booth, we told the kids it was time to head back to Mimi and Coachie's house. Reags got "one last ride"..... and I'm thinking it was the best "ride" of the night! I love the beautiful sunlight coming through the trees and how she is holding onto the side of her Daddy's head. A very sweet Daddy/Daughter moment!

Love how Sarah helps Reagan out of the rides...
We went to the county fair when Amelia wasn't much bigger than Reagan and Amelia was too scared to go down the slide alone, and I was too scared to go down with her (I'm terrified of heights). My friend took her down on her lap - that's a GREAT friend - and Amelia never looked back and quickly learned that just because I was afraid, did NOT mean it was scary to her:)
Glad you have fearless ones on your hands, makes life easier - until they're 16;)
