Fun at the Fair.

Busiest weekend ever.

We went to a local fair on Sunday-
The kids had a blast.

Jaysen wanted to ride a bazillion rides-
I got out of the ones I could, but others, I felt more comfortable with an adult being with him.

OMG- the Crazy Mouse?
Yeah. It was scary.

That's us- way the hell up there...

It may look small and cute, but that thing was a bad mammajamma.

Jaysen and I are to the right. If you look really close, you can see us clinging to each other for dear life.

When it stopped, I asked Jaysen if he liked it.
He looked at me and said, "yeah.... it was kinda scary." He did not want to go on it again.
Which was good, because neither did I.

Freakin' Crazy Mouse.

Companion got to ride with Rylan.
Aww... my 'lil helicopter pilots!

Since he didn't have to face the Crazy Deathmouse, I feel totally obliged to let everyone know Companion got queasy on the Teacup ride.

Yes- The Teacups. How awesome is that?!?

I do have to say, that despite his wooziness, he did take The Red One on another ride, totally earning his machismo badge back. Yay, Companion! World's awesomest Dad.

All in all, we had a great time.
Jaysen did an awesome job waiting in lines for the rides- he was way more patient than I was.
He hated the Bumper Cars.
I think there was way too much sensory stuff going on- plus, he couldn't really figure out how to get the car to move. He had a bunch of people shouting directions at him, and came close to losing it. He held it together though (I think because he was a little scared).
The Fun House was another story, not to mention there was no waiting!
He dragged me through that thing 4 times. Then he took Companion.
Then we made him go himself.
Awesome fun for everyone!
Well, maybe not Companion...

Was that St. Mary's? We took Dylan there on Saturday morning around 11-ish. Too bad we didn't run into you guys! Dylan had a great time, btw. I didn't even expect to go on any rides with him, but he asked to and really loved it!

Yeah, but hang on a minute. The teacups turn one way, and the platform they're on the other. Everyone over the age of 12 turns green on those. Give me a death mouse rollercoaster ride every time... But no teacups please. I had to do them twice with my 3 year old this weekend, and I swore, never again!

Looks like fun! And a big high-five to Jaysen for being able to wait in the lines - that is awesome!

Hi Dana! Yes, it was St. Mary's, but we were there on Sunday. We really should get our schedules synched... ;)

Heike- I agree with you about the teacups, but the Death Mouse did the same thing! It spun around on that itty bitty track, while my ass was hanging over into outer space!

I am getting vertigo just looking at that roller coaster!

You are one brave mommy!

Oh thank my lucky stars that Connor isn't quite brave enough for those rides....yet.

Fabulous! Did anyone mention it was like being IN a video game?

Great vestibular sensory experience - added value because he (Jaysen) got to choose!
