Summer Fun

The smell of the warm, buttery popcorn 
The shrieks from the roller coaster that just turned upside down
The encouraging cheers from the game stands where someone is trying to win a stuffed toy for their loved one
The contended smiles at the smooth spinning carousel
The long lines made in anticipation of a fun time
The hustle and bustle to see the exotic jewelery up for sale
That is the town festival that we took Ryad and Nael to a few weeks ago. It's our town's way to welcome  summer and good times that are to come.

I'll have to admit that the lines were long (don't all lines seems longer when you are with kids??) and the boys soon got exhausted. We didn't even get a chance to use all the tickets we bought. We chucked the thrill rides in favor of the kiddy rides, where one parent gets to ride or free with one kid. That way all four of got a chance to ride together. It didn't swing and sway as much as the roller coaster but I have to say that, the sweet smiles that looked up at us made it as thrilling.

The Ferris Wheel was the only "big ride " in which we all could sit together. I had a blast just looking at thei kids' preciously curious faces :)

 I just love the carnival food!! Ryad and Nael seemed frazzled by the "fluffy pink stuff" when they were offered their very first cotton cand.
In the end we went home tired and ready for a long family nap. This post is linked to Mama Hen's Cherished Moment Monday!!

Now for this :

My photo
I started blogging only after my twin boys turned a year old. Here I am recapturing the special moments and attempting to create new ones that make my life even more amazing. Why I didn't start before this? Well, I was busy traveling and discovering the fun life with twins and also catching up on my sleep when I got the time.
