They're Baaaaaaaaack

The park across the street is crowded with semi-trucks stacked with games and rides -- all of which should be unpacked and set up later today.

Yes, it’s that time of year again when the carnies transform the park across the street into a carnival in celebration of the city's founding (or something like that).

Last night Aidan stared out his bedroom window with big eyes at the trucks. He asked about them and to explain the different rides. I think once these things are set up, he’s really going to want to ride them.

The last two years the carnival hasn't been a big deal for the kids because they've been too young to really care about them. Not this year. We're going to have one, at least, who is going to be very interested in the rides, noises, and flashing lights.
