Let's see if we can get Grandma on a carnival ride!

I know they invited me along just to get me on a ride and then hear me squeal like a pig. I didn't care. I went along anyway. Is there anything more fun than a county fair? 

While we loved the goats and pigs and sheep and the horses, in the end it was all about the children, carnival rides, cotton candy and laughing like a kid. What a wonderful day.


Snug as a bug...or a pig?

Food Coma...yes the pig on the left
fell asleep with it's snout in the straw! 
5 Wooly Sheep in blankets on
a hot summer day!

She always wondered what a pig snout looked like
up close.
What? 
I swear she could drive one of these
even though she has no idea what it is.

Pre-ride giggles!

Pretty enough to eat...

...and more!

Just pure fun...no rides for me though. I said I had some mythical ailment. I am just plain chicken!

  1. I LOVE a fair! And I can only imagine how much fun it was to be able to share that with grandchildren! Though I must say I'm sorry to hear about the "ailment" that prevented you from joining them on the rides... That's my most favorite part. Okay...third most favorite...after the Italian Sausage and the fried dough... ;)

    This sort of thing would definitely headline my Happy Happens column! Check it out... http://thefivefacets.blogspot.com/2011/10/happiness-happens.html Would be honored it you'd consider a guest post. :)

  2. Annah, Thank you for stopping by and actually reading the post. :) I love those rides too...just look at those beautiful pictures. I just have never really wanted to get on one. The Ferris Wheel is just about my speed.

  3. Nothing like a fair to bring out the child within! But I am with you - I wouldn't go anywhere near a ride! Grandchildren certainly bring back old feelings, don't they!
