Family Day Out: Soaking Up The Sun, Eating Junk Food And Capping Off Summer's End!




Oh hello, Friday I am so glad I made it through this week. But, can someone explain why it's so hot in Fall? I am not ready to pull out my scarves, boots, and jackets just yet.  That's because I am still trying to cap off my summer. And that is just what I did with my family this week. The local carnival came to town, and I was all in with hanging with the fam, to soak up a little sun, and eat junk food.

Now, it doesn't get any better than that when it comes to laughing and enjoying life. 
First, I had to tassel my husband over the third corn dog. I am not ashamed to admit I ate two all by myself. Seriously, I couldn't resist eating them because they were deep fried with a sweet batter taste.

Sidenote: I love fair foods, and I try to eat everything in sight.

Who remembers those funnel cakes from the carnival days. Did you know most of them are made with a simple pancake mix batter?  I do not care because that is my favorite junk food of all times, and it is always a must grab and eat from any fair that comes to town.

 I must admit the food was pretty pricy, considering it is a family event. But that doesn't stop my family and me from sampling all the different dishes. I even tried a lamb gyro. Umm, I may never do that again as long as I live. Now that is an acquired taste that my taste buds didn't require. :)

 But, I did enjoy the homemade fried chips, chicken, smothered fried, and non-alcoholic jello drinks.

Oh, and the hot pretzels were Moriah's favorite. Although it was more than she can handle.

Last but not least, from the sweet train, I had to have at least one caramel apple. Now, this year it wasn't all that good, but I ate it anyway. I prefer a light caramel apple, but this one was a mix of caramel and chocolate. I knew that before buying, but I wanted to try something different. #neveragain

I must admit I am a bigger kid than my daughters are. I'll admit I will be the first one to jump on any fair ride. And, nope I am not too old to have a little fun. Although I go overboard.

On this particular day, I rode the Ferris Wheel, Rocket Ship, and an unknown ride through a haunted house.

P.S If anyone from my family says I got sick do not believe them.

Ok, I'll admit to looking a little batty after riding some of the rides. But it was nothing to tell TMZ about.

 And I will admit to getting a little sick after coming off a carnival ride that flipped, slung and threw me 1,000 feet into the air. But, I will never admit I need to throw in the towel because of age.  Who says I can't have fun at forty-something. Ha! Not Me.

We spent five hours having a day, of laughs, crazy fun eating junk food and capping off the end of the summer. The best part was watching my daughters slide and glide over the park. Chloe got sick with me so that goes to show kids can't keep up with getting thrown around on bumper cars. LOL, that's life, and this was a good day to have lots of fun.


In conclusion: Life is to short not to be enjoying every inch of it. I just got over my birthday is coming soon. I cried and wasted to much time on going one more year around the moon. And to cry was ok but now it's time for me to get back up and get prepared to start a new journey.

So, it felt good to get up get out and enjoy family, junk food, and summer's end. 



There you have it.

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!
