Where some might see a small community carnival, we see a wonderland in our own backyard - parades, rides, cotton candy, and other sundry marvels all a mere block away. We love living within walking distance of parks, groceries, and the library, but having Summerfest at the end of our street, well, that eclipses every other benefit of our home.
It was perfect.
|You can see that WanYing took her parade responsibilities very seriously and rode with honor.|
|The whole crew hanging out to watch the parade after the Children's Parade (it paled in comparison, of course)|
|Our record of no puking on Summerfest rides was sustained... barely... apparenlty the Tilt-a-Whirl was almost too much for our Benjamin|
|Our kids love all the rides, the mundane...|
|...and the extreme! We were glad they had friends to "enjoy" the Gravitron with this year so no adults had to endure the agony.|
