Now that we live in Plymouth, we look forward to Fall Festival all year long. We have our fun traditions: eating Yaki Tori, riding rides, eating corn, riding rides, eating chicken BBQ, riding rides, eating a bucket of french fries, riding rides, eating elephant ears, riding rides. I guess it's just a lot of eating and riding. In past years, I've spent several hundred dollars on rides and food at the Festival. This year, I had $40 (plus Grammy and Grandpa treated too). Each child got their choice of 4 rides and one food. I'm pretty sure that our $40 bought the same amount of fun that $200 bought and I don't think that even if we were abounding in wealth, I would ever spend that amount of money again on a fair. I have learned so much from our stint in poverty's vale. We saw two families from our ward while we were up there. I found it very interesting that amid all the throngs of teenagers milling around and being yucky, there were three families with their children all having fun being with their family. I know it probably won't last, but I hope my children will always enjoy being together and always be able to find joy in one another's company. Enjoy the photos!!
The carnivores devouring bucket 'o fries. Technically, I guess eating potatoes would make them herbivores but they were eating them like carnivores.
Anna and Emily are on the hanging thing facing the camera in the middle. Both have on white tee shirts. Expression on Anna's face is awesome!!
