Kiddie Rides

Last week our town had it's annual summer celebration with activities, booths, and of course a carnival. They had lots of fun kiddie rides that my boys desperately wanted to go on.

Jonah is three, so he could go on most of the kiddie rides by himself. However I wasn't quite sure if I trusted little Eli to "keep his hands and arms" (and himself) inside the rides at all times. So he spent part of the day like this:


I felt sorry for the little guy, so finally I found some rides that I thought he could go on. He had tons of fun on the carousel and really enjoyed riding on this hot rod with his brother.

Of course Jonah really wanted to go on the Ferris wheel... but since it was just the three of us there that day I didn't really want to take Eli and go with him on the Ferris wheel. That would have been twelve tickets for one ride, which was a bit expensive. Plus I didn't want to send Jonah by himself because I was pretty sure he would get scared. So I conveniently ran out of tickets. You won't tell on me, will you?

  3. Oh I remember those days of worrying that the littlest one would decide mid ride that they wanted off. They usually were so thrilled by the ride they sat still. So much fun!

  9. We have a town celebration every May. And the kids look forward to it every year, even though they're almost grown. A great sense of community, huh?
