There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

Do Carnivals Need Themes?

Peace, Love and Unity. (I guess they do.) People are encouraged to wear tie dye and the whole sixties gear. Yea right. Our community has a lot of activities. Its a great place for kids. Have I mentioned that at all before? And seeing as I am just a big kid this is heaven for me!

Now, for a week, it is the Santa Barbara Fair & Expo. Grooovy baby. Buy a wristband so you can ride all the torturous and rickety carnival rides at one price. I am excited about taking the little one! Fried stuff, ice cream, things that go whirling about, bad carny games, laughing kids and entertainment too. The entertainment, besides the local bands and dancers, includes fire spinners, a hypnotist and a magician. I haven't seen a magician in a long time. I have never seen a live hypnotist. I don't know that the kid will sit through the hypnotist, but magician? heck yea!

When was the last time you rode on one of these!?

You can bet your butt that I am on that ride! We are going on Saturday with a friend and her son, family, etc. That will be the only day I will get to test my nautious levels.

In other words, look for pictures! I can't wait to potentially drop the camera at this event on Saturday. You know I am going to max out that memory card! We are going tonight for a teaser, cuz the kid is dying to get close to the ferris wheel but not on it. I am going to try to get him on it. Not sure its going to happen. Fingers crossed.

Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends, we are so glad you could attend come inside come inside.... :cheesygrin:


  1. omg, I am jealous!

    Wee One and I were wishing yesterday we had a 'carnival' to go to!!!

    I hope you and the little guy have a blast :)

  2. when you coming to visit Goddess? I think our wee ones would have a great time together!

    will send you some cotton candy. hugs:

  3. OOOH. I love rides!! Haven't been forever.

  4. Peace, Love and Motion Sickness..more likely.

  5. Urrff, I never liked carnival rides. Something about being held upside down at the height of a six story building with only a flimsy metal bar to keep me from being splattered on the ground far below, just never clicked my fun-o-meter.

  6. AWESOME!!!! I'm supposed to go to a circus/carnival/flea market next weekend and I'm so insanely excited!!!

  7. looks like a lot of fun. I'm more of a roller coaster freak myself.
