Fall fair time.

See the crazy Mom following the ride making sure her babies sit down.

Still a few years before I have to worry about driving , thank goodness!!

A very tired Mom, one enthusiastic Jillian. She is like the Energizer bunny,
she rarely wears out. I love her sense of adventure, her love of life, she is one
happy little girl.

My big girl, she could of rode the carousel all day. Jen loves horses. She has such a love for animals and such a gentle way about her. It would not surprise me if someday we have a vet in the family.

This was the first ride of the day, Jen is too large for the ride as you can see.
Jen humoured her little sister and rode on it, what you won't do for love.
I think the expression on her face is hilarious, we are not amused.

The ride started Jillian covered her ears and didn't looked to impressed.
We had just spent $27 dollars for a ride all day pass, at this point I am thinking oh no we might have just wasted some money!!

Here comes the big scream, the look of terror, the ride ended abruptly and she was escorted to her Mommy and Daddy. Thank goodness this was the only ride that she took a dislike too, the rest of the day was filled with giggles, smiles and lots of belly laughs.

I love the pictures Kerri!! What a great day out!

Can't wait until we can do that stuff with Owen.

Ms. Dragonfly said...

you look so unimpressed. And European. Are you?
the last photo made me laugh. Only cuz I've seen that face before on my little Shrimpy.

kerri said...

My unimpressed look is due to the picture my husband took before this one. We were looking goofy, Jilly was making her cheese face so he said don't smile(we then get her pretty smile), he snapped as I was not smiling,not flattering!!
I am not European, background is Irish, Scottish, I get that question a lot though.
I wish I had your European looks, any beauty secrets you want to share?

OH, poor Jillian, she does not want to be a firewoman, I can tell. Overall, it looks like you had a great time though!

Jeter Mama said...

oh my goodness, that last pic is priceless!!!!

Glinda said...

Oh, how I long for the days when I will be doing the same. I think I shall be thrilled even to hear the screaming.

I too loved carousel horses when I was young and suspect I made my parents motion sick from having to stand and watch me go 'round and 'round forever.

Sophie's Mom said...

Oh, poor thing! (not liking the ride). My Sophia did that with the merry go round. They had to stop it to get her off. It was just too overwhelming to her. Great pictures!

nikki said...

How fun! (minus the screaming, of course)

We're going to another fair this weekend...what a great way to spend the day. Our girls would get along famously.

crazylady said...

Looks like they 'fair'ed well.
I so 'get' the Jilly smile. Face to save the soul.

You are way blonder again. Shazam it's hot.
When I hack the locks off for the CURE, I'm taking your pic to the stylist. Tellin' er, I want 'dat'.

Ms. Dragonfly said...

I think maybe why I thought you looked European was the unimpressed face. It's a practices skill amoung us, I am impress that you were able to do it.
I think darling you are not needing any beauty tips as you are stunnin (hey if it doesn't work out with hubby give me a call), Unless sleep and pickled livers count as a tip?

tundrachica said...

I remember making the same face as Jillian the first time I met a Carnie!!

Sam said...

Except for the last photo, looks like everything was great!!! Love that last photo!!!

kerri said...

Ms. Dragonfly, I would love to have you on speed dial.
Both beauty tips would be difficult for me, sleep (haven't had any since Jillian came home) and pickled livers,no,no thanks my lovely, going to have to pass.
Those beauty tips are working for you. :o)

I love the pic of you and Jillian - it's like she's smiling with acknowledgment of being the cause for your exhaustion, and!
