Orange Evening Sky

Lauren and I were sitting in the living room, and we glanced outside and saw everything was orange.....

Grabbed my camera, raced up to the field down the road, and watched in awe the very short orange sunset.

I just barely played with the curves and boom! The color!

A Few Pictures of Carp Fair

I did not get to take to many pictures of the fair.

There were sooooooooooooo many people. I read a news article on the fair and it's estimated that 50,000 people will attend over the weekend.


That's a lot!

Anyways.....trying not to lose the kids took away from my picture taking.

Priorities eh?

Here is Alex....on his favourite ride....EVER! 
He's so tiny compared to all the big kids on the ride!

And here he is getting of "Starship 3000"....we had no idea what the ride was like other than it spun - round and round and round.

When we got home, we youtubed "starship 3000".....
Boy oh boy.
He sure is brave!

Up high on the Ferris Wheel...

In line for that killer upside down side ways "fun" ride! 

....and they're next!

Lauren and her friend on "Ali Baba".
The line for this ride was probably an hour....
Well worth the wait though!

Alex and his friend getting ready for "The Sizzler"...

There they go...
Just watching this ride makes me want to puke. Ugh.

The end.

Carp Fair, Ontario

We went to the fair in Carp yesterday.....TONNES of people! Wow!!
They had this new crazy ride called "Spin Out"....and Lauren's friend actually got Lauren to go on it!!

Peer pressure....who says it's a bad thing? LOL....kidding...!

Oh! Big slide!


The Hang Glider.....super fun! (I did NOT go on this ride...)

They all look a little whoozy....LOL

 Nope...none of us went on this ride. Pretty cool though!

Lauren and I. Stupid wicked ride.
Nearly puked because of this nasty ride.
Never again!

Oh what FUN!

Alexander waiting to go on The Dragon rollercoaster!

Hi Mommy!


Lauren with line for the "Full Tilt". She was a bi" nervous...

LOL....Daddy wasn't scared. In fact, he wanted to do the ride without the safety thingy latched in!

And Lauren was like...."Whatever Dad! I'm making sure this thing is LOCKED!"

Ok...Ok...I'll lock mine to!

And they're off.....and up!

Not so bad eh Lauren? I have video of this....and all you hear is Daddy yelling...."Weeeheheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee......wooohooooooooooo..."

Yup...pretty high!

And this is what Lauren looked like after getting off the Full Tilt!

They played a shooting game...and won these rockin' turtles!

On the "Scrambler"....about to get all scrambled up!

Yup....guess they liked it!

Some pretty tall sunflowers!

LOL....Lauren's like...."Ummm Dad? Must we?"

Poutine time! And of course, Alexander had to complain....according to him, there was "too much cheese" on his poutine......hmmmph.

Pulled Pork - Needed much more BBQ sauce!

Hot dog!

Lama? Alpaca? I don't know....but he was cute!

Feeding time!

Scratch time!

Getting all plump and juicy for Christmas dinner..... :)

A mean goose...look at his weird teeth!
Nice blue eyes though!

Chicken, Hen, Partridge....some bird....

I stuck my fingers in and touched this guys "stuff" on his head. LOL....he didn't like that too much.

Sleepy time!

But I woke him up by taking his picture....Sorry buddy! Go back to sleep!

Back on the Scrambler....

And now....Alexander's turn on the Full Tilt - with his brave big sister!

Getting ready to start....then I switched over to video...I'll post that too. He didn't really enjoy this ride too much.....I think his crying and screaming in fear confirmed that!

And my youngest was on this ride.....somewhere.....


Lauren - watching her brother on Zero Gravity!

The Himalyaya...the kids and I went on this joyous ride.
Gave me whiplash.

They're on here.....somewhere....spinning round and round and round.....while the music is BLASTING....and two carnival dudes are threatening the fearless ride goes - a nice blasting of water.....

Video to follow....LOL

Kids didn't go on this ride/play thingy structure....
Wayyyyyyyyyyy to scary!

Here's my youngest....second round on Zero Gravity....

"THE BEST RIDE EVER!".........

Spinning, spinning, spinning.....goes up....

And there you go.
Let the vomiting commence.

Ahhhhhhhh.....this handsome guy is "Caramel".....and because of Caramel, I now want a cow. I love this guy. 


♥ Caramel ♥

I cried a little when I had to leave him..........

The end of our day at Shawville Fair.
Fun was had by all....
