I must be getting old...

J and I took the kids to the fair in Providence Bay. The kids begged us to go on a ride with them and we complied. Oh boy...we went on the Avalanche and I was screaming the whole ride through. Poor J had the terrible misfortune of sitting next to me. Luckily he still has all his digits!

I must be getting old, because when I was younger, I'd go on all the rides at Disney World, Canada's Wonderland and LaRonde...and I'd keep going back for more and more and more. Now, one crappy little carnie ride makes me want to lose my lunch. Sucks getting old! :)

I have to admit, I enjoyed our day out. The fair brought back memories of childhood and my teenage years. Tattoo-covered carnies with cut-off sleeves, loud carnival music, flashing lights, sno-kones, cotton candy, candy apples, twirling strawberry rides, flying swings, bumper cars, nearly impossible to win games...ahh the memories! I almost won a little dirt bike, but ended up winning a stuffed bear for my hubby that says "Love You". I joked that all the guys on the fire department will call him a pansy when they see the bear sitting in his truck :)
