The Punahou Carnival

This weekend is the annual Punahou Carnival. I wasn’t planning on going since DH is out of town but since my parents offered to watch Kaila AND gave us money, we decided to go. We even took our nephew along with us. He’s the same age as Kacie and I knew they would have a blast riding together. (In other words, I wouldn’t have to ride with her). I’m still traumatized from the last time I thought I was going to die on the Music Express.

I knew the carnival was going to be crowded when we couldn’t find parking only an hour after it opened. We searched the streets high and low and I started to worry that I would have to parallel park my monster mini-van. However, we finally ended up paying $10 at a nearby high school.

With Kiana being younger it was hard to find rides that all the kids could go on together. We even tried the Fun House where you walk though various mazes and moving platforms. I mean, how hard could it be if Kiana and I held hands, right? But we both kept falling down and they ended up shutting down the whole ride so Kiana and I could get through it. How embarrasing. In hindsight, I probably should have taken off my heels before going in. Oh well, live and learn.

After a few hours I was so ready to go home. I was hot and tired and thirsty and broke.  However, I knew the kids were having a good time and that made it all worthwhile.

    Ah, the joys of carnivals. I guess it’s a good thing we can see kids enjoying things they do or they probably wouldn’t get to do very much! I’m sure they had a blast and it will be a fun memory for them.

    Ok, sorry not making fun, just have to laugh though. You wore heels to a carnival.. :) Is their a way to check out all the photo’s you have so far for the 365? Did you do the swap meet yet? ha ha but it was a great place to get a huge bag of cuddle fish for good price.

    Looks like so much fun… the girls smiles are wonderful. I think I probably would have fallen down in the fun house also… And I don’t wear heals anymore! :-)

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she keeps the idea of a user
    in his/her brain that how a user can be aware of it.
    Thus that’s why this paragraph is great. Thanks!
