The Midway

I have bitter-sweet memories of the carnival growing up. I was always the kid who had severe motion sickness and would have to have the operator stop the ride for me to get off or run away directly after it was over.

I also have memories of great friends, a unforgettable first date, twinkling lights, sweet smells, loud noises, bright colors and late nights.

So, when I head to the midway with my favorite little man, I take Dramamine, ride all the rides, even though my head spins and split a corn dog with him...because it makes him happy and I know that one day, he will not want to go with me anymore.

He got to spend the afternoon with his best pals. Yes they are girls.

I am so jealous! My husband won't go to the carnival with me, he doesn't trust the rides. I need to find me a ride partner!

Carnival rides scare me to death... but I always figure I would be having fun if something were to ever happen!
