Favorite Photo Friday - "A Spring Night"

May 3, 2013

A sister is one who reaches for your hand and touches your heart Polaroid
I am just popping in this morning to share a few snapshots from last weekend.
The weather was absolutely gorgeous and I think it is safe to say that Spring has finally arrived.
It has teased us a bit this year with a few warm days then back to cold, but it has been beautiful and everything is finally in bloom.
Lots of pretty colors sprouting everywhere you look.

We attended the annual carnival that takes place in the town where I grew up.
Not much changes from year to year..... same rides, same people, but the girls LOVE IT and always look forward to it.

In less than an hour the girls dizzied themselves silly on all the rides and even tried a few of the games.
We burned through the cash quickly, but the last $5 went towards the ball toss to win a fish.
Lucky for us, that $5 got us the family sized container so we could "help" to win the girls a fish.
Mimi had the lucky toss..... and we came home with three goldfish.

The girls were so excited and spent the first 2 days mesmerized by the fish bowl.
Unfortunately, the fish did not have much life left in them.
By the Fourth day, we had our third and final funeral, where we flushed our last slippery friend to fishy heaven.
Both Sarah and Reags handled it well and I was secretly relieved that I was not going to have to keep up with cleaning a fish bowl.
Having a dog for a pet is enough for me:)

~TGIF...Have a wonderful weekend~

Awww, the girls looked like they had a blast at the fair. My girl loves a good fair! Doug and I attempted the fish tank thing when we first got married. It was horrible! It was supposed to be Doug's tank really (it was in his office), yet I was the one flushing the fish all the time. *Shutter* I was so happy when we decided to get rid of it!

The Shrine Circus is in town here, and the boys are so looking forward to our visit next week. I think we'll avoid the games with live prizes, tho. :)

Happy Weekend Lisa!

Awww, so sorry about the fish. But you captured the event lovingly. xo

Mimi said...

That carnival looks so much fun and the girls seem to be having a blast.
Gorgeous, happy photos!
I'd be relieved to say rip to the fish as well; we had goldfish for years, and poor hubby had the bowl cleaning job every weekend!
