Does your town have a summer carnival or celebration?
The city we live in now has a celebration called Strawberry Days. They have contests, concerts, parades and a rodeo. There is even a carnival with rides and booths in the middle of town. As we drove by last week I could see my boys' eyes get big and full of excitement.
As soon as they saw the carnival, my boys begged me to go on the rides. They were so excited that I just couldn't say no.
I even managed to turn our adventure into a lesson of sorts. Jonah really wanted to ride on the Ferris Wheel, but it cost 4 tickets each. I told him that if we went on the Ferris Wheel then we would only have enough tickets to go on one other ride. So he could go on four different rides or just go on the Ferris Wheel and one other ride.
It didn't take him too long to figure out what he wanted to do.
