frying pan farm was having fall carnival fun. they were advance selling discounted wristbands for unlimited rides on the opening night. i didn't even have to ask - i *knew* it would be the right thing for him.
it was ideal weather. ideal (lack of) crowds. ideal venue in terms of size and number and kinds of rides. ideal time of day - early evening darkening through sunset into night-time. perfect for his wish fulfillment.
|moving so quickly you can see his dust!|
|our view from atop the eli wheel|
|on the carousel|
|in the very front of the dragon wagon|
|the carny for this ride was super awesome|
|he loved it, but it was the beginning of my eventual downfall|
|treasure hunt fun house|
|view of the crescent moon. he liked looking at it while whirling on this ride, the paratrooper.|
|sole spinner in this tub o' fun - the carny for this one really connected with him while getting him secured on and off the ride.|
|aboard the scrambler. he rode it twice. it was his second favorite ride (after the ferris wheel)|
he wanted a ferris wheel from which he could see the whole carnival. and a merry-go-round. and riding as many times as he wanted. and twinkling lights. wishes fulfilled, my sweet boy.
|he loved the *twinkling lights*|
|yup, he's missing a couple of top teeth there. new ones coming in just fine.|
