Summer Has Officially Begun

Summer has begun! And it wouldn't be summer for this family without going to Nana and Papa's for the summer fair.

I grew up in a tiny little town that hosted a tiny little carnival every year. Sadly (now that I look back), it was always a huge deal. And it still is . . . to my kids.

You can hear the action from my parents' front porch, which beckons all children who dwell within, "Come, come, if you spend $25 on the games, you might go home with a stuffed animal worth $1.58 ..."

I almost always see a few people I went to school with, which can or cannot be a good thing - it's always just a crapshoot. Will it be a girlfriend who I haven't seen in ages or the creepy guy who left "love" notes in my locker? Shudder. You just never know.

So that's where we're going today . . . and probably tomorrow. Wish me luck. Photos forthcoming.

  1. You would think it is Christmas time around here! My kids can hardly think of anything else. When are we leaving??? Are we leaving as soon as Marco gets off the school bus??? Are we leaving TODAY Mommy? Is there a roller coaster? No. Is there a merry-go-round? I hope so. SETH will be there? WAHOO - he is my best buddy (spoken by Gustavo this morning).

    The little ones wanted to know if there was going to be a pinata. God love their little Latino souls!

    Ah, the fair...

    Can't wait to see you tonight!
