Carni Folk

I love roller coasters (and I do mean LOVE). 
I thought it'd be a great idea to find a sitter and go to the local carnival that's been going on, but Steve really wanted to take the kids and who am I to argue with his desires to be an awesome Dad.
So, we took them and I am glad we did.

Even though I had to miss out on this fun

 We ate plenty of these to make up for it

 Juliette had an absolute ball watching her brother ride the rides

and I got to sneak a little thrill in 

Alfie wasn't so sure about the dragon coaster, so he and his Dad had a man to little-man talk

 and it did not dissappoint

 Time with these people is always well spent

and then I knew it was time to stop with the picture taking because Steve started making faces like this at every opportunity :)

Love love love your pictures! They are absolutely beautiful! The farris wheel one is the BEST!!! Do you use a special lense or a photoshopping kind of program to give them the colored look and rounded edges? I would love to transform some of mine like this!! Happy weekend!!

Thanks stephanie, I actually use to edit most of my photos, and they have an effect called "1960's" that does all the work for me.

That is so funny because - I was just playing around in picnik with a couple of my peony pictures - and found the 1960's button and tried it - and thought it was pretty close!!! So I was coming back to tell you that I found something similar!!! Thanks so much!!!
