The Carnival

Once a year, the church in our neighborhood hosts a family carnival. This was the first time I ever went because I wanted to take the boys on some rides. Nolan had just started a head cold this morning, but, you know kids -- runny nose & sneezing isn't going to stop them from playing and having fun!

We asked the boys if they wanted to go down the big slide, Luke said yes, Nolan said no.
There is our neighbor, Kayla next to us! We found her sitting on her front step looking sad, so when we asked her what was wrong, she said that she couldn't go to the carnival because her friend wasn't allowed to go. We cleared it with her mom and she came with us instead!
Nolan didn't want to ride the carousel either, but Luke had a BLAST with daddy!!
Nolan much preferred running around with Kayla instead.
Nolan really did enjoy fishing though!
Mom Mom lent an expert hand!
Both boys had a great time riding these ducks -- they did it twice!
At the end of the night, we asked Nolan again if he wanted to do the big slide with mommy -- he said yes!
When we finished, he wanted to go again -- that's my brave little guy! We all shared a little cotton candy on the walk home and went to bed a little later than we usually do. We had a really good time and I definitely think we'll go again next year.

Great pitures. They are so cute. I found your blog from another blog I follow. I am now following your blog too. You see, I am an identical twin myself. I will enjoy reading what you write about your twins, as well as what your thoughts are as the mother of twins. I hope you will follow me back

Love the pictures. The first picture of the Gravitron, used to be my favorite ride as a kid. I loved it!
The boys are getting so big!
