I wouldn't say David and I ever really go to carnivals, but it was something to do. Plus we want to take her to Knobel's Amusement park this week. We wanted to see how she'd do on rides. She didn't do to bad. Carousel she liked for a few turns, then wanted off. LOVED the train. She cried so hard because she wanted on the ferris wheel. Which she wasn't big enough and we would not go on that anyway. She loved funnel cake , but didn't like cotton candy.
