Fun at the Fair

We went to Blackfoot with David this past weekend. It was a lot of fun. We got some new rides that the kids were DYING to try out! Seth, Hannah, and Bugga rode the Scrambler, and loved it. So, Pyper had to try as well, she hates to be left out. Bug and I rode with her. She liked it until it started to go full speed, then she wasn't so sure anymore! We just tried to keep her entertained until it was over! *note to self--take Pyper on rides AFTER HOURS, when she won't have to ride the full time!!*

Here is a picture of the kids riding the first of MANY times!

They even got their Dad to ride with them, but I was stuck in the ticket booth selling tickets and my camera was in the car. Bummer!

This is what Pypie does ALL DAY LONG while we are there...

I also missed another funny photo op later that night. We just barely got a Roll-O-Plane (it got here on Tuesday, and the Fair started on Friday!). It is really old and hadn't been used for about 3 years so it needed a bunch of help. It has a lot of potential--it has a neat look to it, and they STILL make parts for it (it was made in 1949!). But, since we didn't have a lot of time, it didn't have all the bugs worked out of it yet. It was set up, but not running. On Saturday night, the maintenance guy finally got all the kinks worked out--AND IT RAN!! Seth had been begging to ride it since last week when he found out that Grandpa Gordon was on the way here with it. So, after sending a couple of the workers on it to make sure it was safe for my kids (you can maim a worker, but not my kid), Seth got to ride. Crazy (the maintenance guy) asked who was next, and Seth ran over. Then much to every ones surprise, so did Bugga! Pyper wanted to ride too, but I couldn't handle that one! Well, to make an already long story short, Bug made it about half way around the 34 foot tall ride when she realized what she was in for and freaked. Her eyes were bulging out of her head, and she started screaming "I WANT OFF! I AM DONE!" She had to make the other half of the revolution to get down, and her heart was just pounding when she got off. I guess it was a good thing that she got to ride at her dad's carnival where she could get off if she wanted! I would have hated to see what would have happened if she had to ride the whole ride!

Needless to say, Seth is a maniac, and loved every second that he was on the Roll-O-Plane. He can't wait until he gets to ride it again(and again, and again...)!
