Carny-val

Yesterday we decided to check out a traveling carnival in the area. Small, Dirty but got the job done. One carny, who looked like she was the old witch on Snow White, was convinced she knew Brian. creepy.
Brian was super cool and just the night before we had been shopping for our youth trek pioneer clothes. He bought a 2$ vest that was perfect... for 1849. OF COURSE he wore it to the carnival. Classy.
Boots hates rides. He just wants to run, wave, and cuddle. Natalie was awesome though and ran from one thing to the next. It was pretty empty though so most rides she was the only rider on the whole ride. She loved them all except the "scary dragon roller coaster". It was fun watching her face on all of them go from excitement to a little nervous as they got faster.
Eric REALLY wanted to do the gravity something ride. I LOVE RIDES and I was in line to get my ticket to ride with him, after he gets on though the carny turns to me and tells me that it is full. hmmm.... ya looks really full.

Last night the girls went to the Church's performance for the 10 Virgins which my Mother in Law was one of the beautiful voices. It was incredible. One of the most spiritual experiences I have had in a long time. TOri, my MIL sings like and angel, she honestly sounds like Julie Andrews, but better! It was amazing.
Today we celebrated the birthdays in Feb with a family dinner out here. Yum food, balloon games, cupcake decorating, and little sweet kisses were going on all night! I love the Rawl Family, I am so blessed to have a family away from my Mill family that is just as awesome. I dont think many people can say that!!

Ah, I love this kid. He is awesome. BOOTS.

Maybe it was better that you didn't go on that ride...if he said it was full it probably had faulty chairs!

Sorry. I couldn't get past the vest. You know Brian just does this stuff to aggravate you. He gets so much joy out of it...

HAHAHAHA.
Ok, I was going to say something about the sweet vest in the first picture, but then you covered that. Also, I am laughing so hard at the dirty carny that said "it's full" they are all so weird, which is scary that one said she knew Brian. hahahaha

Oh Newby..you belong in a pioneer clothes catalog as a male model. Inspiring. Natalie seems to love the camera. :)

you gotta love the Carni people! There's a guy at my salon who works the carnivals and does hair on the side, he is a hoot! Your kids are adorable!

I used to love ghetto carnivals. Sadly, Jeremy does not share my same enthusiasm. Boo.

I don't usually read blogs, but I saw yours off of Audrey's blog, and started reading. I just want to say that Brian's mom did an awesome job in The Ten Virgins. We saw the "encore" performance on 3/14 and we loved it!

Great blog, and it is great to see you and Brian and the kids.
