Today starts the winter holidays for Payton's school. No school at all next week. Coincidentally the carnival came to town. How fortunate for us! It was a nice day, but a little on the cool side. Still, the sun was out and wind was calm. It was a good day to get out of the house.

To get the fun started Payton took his little brother on a small coaster ride. Nothing to hairy, just right for Parker. They rode this a few times before Parker tired of it. Payton finished off the tokens by himself.

Wondering what to do next, Kathleen suggested the bumper cars. Payton hasn't ridden bumper before so tickets were purchased and he and Kathleen stepped into the danger zone. Kathleen started out driving, but before long Payton was behind the wheel. He really enjoyed this ride. He was all smiles.

After the bumper cars we headed over to the fun house. Payton always likes running through it. This time it had a Mexico theme. The thing always seems to look different at each appearance. The artwork on it was pretty good; with one part being a little inappropriate for the kiddies.

This carnival didn't have the carny food you get in the States, but they did have cotton candy. We nibbled on the big hair ball while looking for the next thing to do.

Payton again tried something new - bungy jumping. No, he didn't jump off a bridge. He just jumped up and down on a trampoline thing-a-ma-jig. He had fun with this, but he has a long way to go before he'll dunk a basketball.

By now we had enough and it was time to head home. We'll probably hit the carnival again before it leaves. We have three unused tokens to the bumper cars!
