We decided to go the carnival...did you know how expensive that is? I guess I'm really getting old. I figured 50 cents a tickets...but NO! A buck a ticket! We dropped $50 at this carnival for about an hour of fun and maybe 7 rides. BUT it was a blast. The kids had a great time. Breccan actually enjoyed all the rides. The last time he tried even the carosel (is that spelled right?) he was scared and wanted off; but this time, he laughed and giggled! We really did have fun and I guess $50 is worth it, when your kids get to have so much fun!
