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.

Fair and Relaxing Ocean Waves

We went to the Fair from 12:30 to almost 7:30. And it was hot. The kid wasn't into the rides too much, but his little buddy was! We found a shady spot and hogged the table for a good part of the day. I was the only adult in our group that got on a ride. I had to ride this one. HAD to.. it intrigued me all day long... calling me to it. That feeling of flying through the air, with hardly any restraint. Once I got past the "unsafe" feeling, I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

The buddies rode the train a few times. They went to get on other rides, but my little guy was kind of scared. But finally they rode this ride 4 times. It was a simple ride. The cars were going around in a small circle then whipping around the corner. They laughed the entire time.

We spent to much money on BAD fried food, like corn dogs and fried cheese. And too much money playing cheesy rip off games trying to win stuffed sharks. We ate peanuts, funnel cakes, corn dogs, roasted corn, shaved Ice with mango, passion fruit and banana syrup, Lots of water, caramel apple, kettle corn, and bar-b-que. And lemonade. I was burnt out by 7:30.

Then on Sunday to the Beach for a much needed day of sitting and watching the waves. And the seals. And the people. And the dogs. and the kids... laying under the umbrella. I still need some sleep today and not likely.

Summer is coming.Time for the beach. And that sounds like heaven to me. I love beach time. Haven't had any sleep this weekend. I will write a more creative and intriguing entry soon. In the meantime, enjoy the sounds of the sea. (click below)


  1. your son is really starting to turn into a "big boy"... in this pic at least, he's starting to lose that "baby face"... my son is starting to do that too....

  2. I love the swing picture. Great angle! Fairs rock. I usually stay long after I'm tired, burned, full, and broke. There's just something about them that makes you feel like a kid again. It's hard to leave.

  3. i didnt see the wave file before... just clicked it.. cool!

  4. That sounds like a great weekend! I always have to ride the rides too..but the fried food always makes me sick. Still indulge though!

  5. I'm sitting on our deck over looking the water as I type this, so I don't really need the ocean sounds.

    Although we are on a harbor, so there aren't any waves.!

  6. i need to get to the beach! now!
