We had a very busy Cinco de Mayo weekend! The carnival was in town and we decided to take the kids! It was so much fun. :)
We waited to go until it was just about dark. Elena and Dominic loved looking at all the lights! It was definitely past his bedtime but he was fascinated by everything.
We started out with some rides first. This little girl is getting so big!!
She seems to be getting a little timid about doing some of the rides she used to go on no problem! Kinda strange - must be a phase. She really wanted to ride this with me, but after we got started she had a death grip on the bars and wouldn't even let go to wave at Daddy!
The carousel is more her style. :)
We took a quick fresh-squeezed lemonade break next.
Then she hit a few more rides.
Dominic just took it all in -
Finally we did some games next. This is all Elena really wanted to do - we let her pick pretty much whatever she wanted and she did all the games on her own!
A little basketball - nice form!
She even did darts! She was really excited about winning a hundred dollar bill yo! ;)
This little guy was such a trooper! The people were so nice and gave him a little toy when Elena would play a game. (He was excited about that!)
We finally finished off with the lucky duck game.
Even D got to do this one!
He chose a little chili pepper! Ha ha!
What a fun night! The kids were so exhausted when we got home. Poor Dominic was wiped out! Didn't even wake up when I got him out of the car seat or when I put his jammies on! Wow.
It was so fun for Elena to play all of the games by herself this year! She was so proud of all her winnings - she even insisted on sleeping with them all in her bed that night! :) I remember the first time we took her to the carnival! She was so little!
