Yesterday we went to the local carnival which always lands over the 4th of July weekend. We have meant to go for the past 3 years but something always came up. So glad we made the time to go yesterday with our good friends.
We saw a dragon roller coaster.
Shoved our trash into the mouth of a clown trash can! I am thinking this could get BIG money on ebay.
We coveted stuffed junk!
We found a clown shooting gallery.
And acted accordingly.
Watched other, braver, folks ride the Viking Ship.
I was blissed out, surrounded by all the colors and vintage carnie goodness.
This reminds me to brag about my SERIOUS faux bois score. I scored a FREE 4 drawer filing cabinet off Craigslist. It is a vintage beauty and photos are sure to follow once we’re settled into the new house. Now back to the carnival…
All 3 of my men, 2 wee ones and my man, climbed through the obstacle course. Some faster than others! 😉
The signs were gorgeous.
My youngest covered his ears to try and block out all the massive carnival noise, even said no to cotton candy because he had no free hands. But then, then he spotted the duckie pond.
I wanted to buy/steal the aqua and red duckie. I settled for a photograph. Life rule # 427, Do not mess with CARNIES.
SHAZAM! (taken through the viewfinder of my vintage Kodak Duaflex)
