Every year the girls get to spend the Sunday of Labor Day weekend at the carnival. The Prosser Chamber of Commerce sells all-you-can-ride wristbands for a discounted price if purchased in advance. They always have a great time riding the rides. I do my best not to think about all the people that have puked on the very seats they are sitting in. While we were there today someone threw up on three of the rides. They do a great job of cleaning up though. (wink-wink) They use a hose if one is handy or a bucket of water. I'm pretty sure that gets rid of all the germs. (wink-wink again)
Lauryn and her cousin Nico are having a water gun race. Nico won a little stuffed animal for his little sister, Ryli. Thankfully the carnival wasn't loaded with games that interested her. She loves to play and could spend a fortune to win a bulk stuffed animal. We've come home with some interesting "prizes" in the past. Today we came home empty handed except for the bag of cotton candy she conned her dad into buying.This is one of the pukey rides. You can barely see Jen behind her cousin Steve. She went on this bugger 5 times today.
Here is Jen upside down. I know she's in there somewhere!
Whew...they landed safely!
After early evening the girls tried to avoid #4 on the Tilt-A-Whirl. Yep...you guessed it. Someone blew chunks. Lauryn was really mad because "#4 is the fastest one"! It's clean though because the worker rinsed it out with a bucket of water. This isn't funny but...well, yes it's funny (now)! While my girls were riding the umbrella ride there was an employee welding on it. I didn't get a good photo but there were welding sparks flying all over. Boy...what they do to keep our kids safe;)
Jen was so happy to be able to spend the day with Ellie! She looks forward to riding with her every year. Lauryn and Nico finishing a ride. Lauryn had to sit on her flip flops so she didn't lose em'. Christopher and Lauryn taking a ride together.
Lauryn totally loves the bumper cars. I could sit and watch this ride all day. I know this doesn't sound right but it makes me giggle whenever I see kids smack into each other and their heads jerk.
The annual carnival day is over. We'll be marking it on the calendar for next year though.
