Az and cousin Cyril on the swings. Brother Shane and Cyprian. Avi and Grandpa Ron on the deathtrap of a Ferris Wheel! I mean, they were literally OILING it between rides and welding support beams and stuff. YIKES. My sister, Dee's house right next door the carnival. It started at the edge of her property. So cool. You could sit on her porch and see the whole thing. It was a great vantage point and perfect for me as I took a break when Liberty was napping on Dee's couch at one point. I sat out and munched on some food and got to see my kids and the neices and nephews riding rides.
All the carnival rides were vintage. A bit of a pucker factor for me, as I watched my kids on rides that looked like they could break at any moment. The scariest was the Ferris Wheel. I could hardly bare to watch them on that one. Figured one of them would plunge to their death. However, they all had fun and survived! The swings were cool...rusty, but the kids didn't care. It was a favorite. Avi LOVED the big slide. Grandpa Ron took her on all the rides. He was her carnival buddy!
