"Do not yield to discouragement in the face of difficulties and do not abandon yourselves to false solutions which often seem the easiest way to overcome problems. Do not be afraid to make a commitment, to face hard work and sacrifice, to choose the paths that demand fidelity and constancy, humility and dedication. Be confident in your youth and its profound desires for happiness, truth, beauty and genuine love! Live fully this time in your life so rich and so full of enthusiasm."
"Let us look with greater hope to the future; let us encourage one another on our journey."
~ Papa Benedict XVI

The Carnival

Miss Linda Lu is so kind...
she gave us ride tickets for the carnival in town recently!

The Wiggle Worm


it's tough being little...

the 'roller coaster'

yes, she went on it with dad!

The Merry Go Round

Bumper Cars






The shorter crowd watching the fun...

More Bumper Cars




the Roller Coaster again!




deciding what to ride next!

The Wiggle Worm!

Wait!  You only need to be so high to ride ALONE...



(He did NOT want to get off!)



Practicing for Driver's Ed?

Big brother was the tallest person able to ride this one!






He actually cried when we took him off this one!

Always looking for the camera!








One more run on the Bumper Cars
(this one is always a favorite with us!)

AND Round Up

I told him i went on it with him last time (State Fair) ...
so he needed to find a new sucker willing soul to ride with him this time 

That would be Dad...

 Thank you Linda!  We all had a great time!
