Strawberry Days Carnival

Yep you guessed it, Strawberry Days in Pleasant Grove. So we would of liked to go to the Rodeo but considering my fragile state we decided that a quick trip to the carnival just down the hill was a better idea. Plus, the kids had never been to a carnival so it was fun to see them experience it for the first time.

The first ride they wanted to go on was the Merry-go-Round. Jocelyn loved it but as you can tell from Ethan's face he was a little worried when he was so high up on the horse.
The next ride they decided to go on was a Dragon Roller coaster, now my mothers instinct said this ride was way too scary for them and I really shouldn't let them go but at the same time you really have to experience things on your own sometimes so you can learn. Look at how excited they were before the ride started..

and then it started and they both decided it was too scary. They were brave kiddos and made it through the entire ride. However, every ride after that was in the little kid place.

Caitlyn was a perfect angel during the carnival and I think she was just absorbing all the sounds, sights and smells. She was too small to go on any rides this year, but maybe next year. We took a break from the rides and grabbed a bite to eat... got to love carnival food. We took Jo to get her face painted and walked through the boutique at the recreation center.The last ride the kids did before we left was the flying saucer ride... they've been on a bit Toy Story kick so this was just icing on the cake. They were really sad to leave but mommy was done being on her feet and the crowd was starting to get huge.

Thanks to Meme and Popop for taking us all to the Carnival!!
