Sweet Indulgences Sunday #27

The county fair is in town and the boys and I went Tuesday evening. I even braved the ferris wheel for them since their dad wasn't with us to take on that task. It was the one thing they HAD to ride! I warned them both that no one was to rock the seat. My six-year-old encouraged me throughout the ride, "You see - it's not so bad." Of course, his tune changed a little later after he emerged from a rough ride on the Flying Bobs: "They should have never let a six-year-old on there; I could have been killed!" All was well as we left with a bucket of popcorn, a bag of cotton candy, and a huge cherry Icee. Thank goodness it's only once a year.

The coming week holds more fall excitement for the kids. Thursday is the fall festival at school: bouncy houses, hayrides, and cake walks. Oh, and more cotton candy and popcorn. Friday is the Halloween parties. For my younger son's class, I was assigned a seemingly impossible task to bring individually packaged candy corn and tattoos. Fortunately, my hunt for both of these ended at Walgreens. It should be an exciting week. Hope you're all having a good weekend and enjoying all that fall has to offer in your area.
