Happy First Day of Summer!

Even though lately the temps around here make it feel like the middle of July, today is in fact the first day of summer! And the beginning of summer around here always means two things 1) school is out 2) the carnival is back! :)

Every year after the last week of school the carnival comes to town! There's rides, games, food, and fireworks! I like going on the nice gentle rides, like the merry-go-round, but my sister and brother were always the ones to go on the scary rides! Of course my favorite part is the fair food. Where else can you get deep-fried cookies and candy bars, nevermind the hot dogs, cheesesteaks, funnel cake, and (my personal favorite) cotton candy!

The first date my husband ever asked me on was to the carnival. :) He agreed to go the ferris wheel with me even though he was afraid of heights. It was too cute. :) Summer means a lot of things, but the beginning of summer will always be carnival time to me! I hope you enjoy this carnival themed mini treasury! :)

  2. I love the treasury! Have fun at the carnival. :)

  3. What a cute story about your husband! I'm not a big fair person but I love the ferris wheel. I hope you have fun at the carnival!

  4. Thanks everybody! It turns out we are going Friday. I can't wait! :D

    BabyMakesFour - Congrats! :) That would be a totally cute theme for a nursery! Good luck! :)

    M.M.E. - I am scared to death of heights, but I love the ferris wheel too. :) It just turns out my husband is more scared of heights then I am. ;)
