There’s something about a carnival that I love. The smells, the sights, the sounds … running into people you know. To me, carnivals have a small-town vibe. Some say our area of town reminds them of one giant cul-de-sac. I think that’s why I love it so much. You can live in a huge city, but events like this help make your neighborhood feel like a community.
Saturday night, we took the kids and grandpa to the carnival. It comes every year (see 2012 here). This time Kelsey was big enough to ride all the rides. Colton use his good looks to convince a lady working to give him a yellow duckie stuffed animal at no charge. It worked. He walked away a happy camper. It was a successful Saturday night.
