We try to go to our local carnival every year (here is 2012 and 2014). It’s pretty much the fastest way to spend $60, but it’s truly a lot of fun. This was our first year going as a family of five. It’s a pretty surreal feeling when I look back at those two blog posts and see how young everyone was (including us!).
Tonight was pretty awesome though. Besides the fact that Ryan took F O R E V E R in the ticket line trying to decide if a $30 (each) unlimited ride pass was a better value than the 40 tickets for $20. He kept looking at his phone to see “how much time we have left in the day to finish these rides.” Oh, Ryan. I can’t take this CPA anywhere.
In fact, today was monumental. Not only did we make it through the carnival with all of the kids in tact, but (are you ready for this?) we made it through with ZERO tantrums! That’s right. Not a single one. I’m speaking to you, Colton! Our spunky three-year-old was the product of perfection tonight. Ahhh … what a feeling!
Here are some more pictures of our fun Sunday at a spring carnival.
This morning, it was all about mommy, baby and a good conversation with a great friend. Jamie and I took our girls (Kelsey and Kamryn) on a 3 mile walk around a beautiful lake. The weather was perfect for it! We saw other mommy’s out walking with their babies and their dogs. And, in true girlfriend fashion, we saw other strollers that we had to have. We’re both in the market for a good Jogger stroller, so if you know of one that you love, please let me know. .
With Starbucks in tow, we walked the lake and talked about life. We stopped to take pictures. Feed the girls. And pick up all the toys my child kept throwing out of her stroller. The girls were great! After our walk, we sat under a tree and let the girls stretch. Kamryn (just over a year and a half) is going to be a great big sister one day. Look at her go! All she wanted to do was pick up Kelsey’s sippy cup and help her drink. Kelsey wasn’t sure at first, but what a great sport. Kam would give her the drink, then pull it away, then give it to her, then take it back. It was a-dorable. One day when the girls are older, they’re both going to laugh at these pictures. Until then, we’ll laugh at them. Enjoy. .
