Beautiful Days

Ben riding a carnival ride in 2007.Monday night I took the Tadpole to a traveling carnival. Now, I’ve been to some pretty scuzzy carnivals in my time…but fortunately this wasn’t one of them. For the most part, the employees were clean and the equipment didn’t look run down. For what it’s worth, I’ll vouch that Wright Family Amusements ran an above average carnival. The night was mild and pleasant, and we had a fun evening. The carnival was active but not crowded as it had been over the weekend. We went from one ride to the next, trying some two or three times. The armband for unlimited rides was a great investment. We walked hand-in-hand from one ride to the next until he’d tried them all. Then he tried several of them again.

I don’t know if I’m spoiling him. We weren’t celebrating any special occasion, other than that the carnival was in town. But maybe it was for me as much as it was for him.  I don’t know if it’s a memory he’ll keep when he grows up, but it was a father-son evening I hope I can hold onto for many years to come.
