Up and Down and Round and Round
At the beginning of the school year, we set out to try making our Friday nights more fun. We've done several different activities from renting movies to football games, baseball games to playing hard in the back yard or parks, or games at home. It really has been a great semester so far! Last Friday, we decided to head to a mall to just hang out and do some window shopping, and we ate in the food court (something we haven't done in so long). As we were walking around in this mall that we don't frequent (it's about a 30-45 min drive for us to get to) we saw some really neat things. One that we saw was a carousel! This thing was huge - two levels! Usually we don't say yes to things like this, but it was Friday night! ALL of us got to get on! Both kids really enjoyed the ride. When we started going, I had forgotten about this little part, but the animals started going up and down! As we were going, Adie was pointing out lots of things, but the one thing I remember her saying is, "Around and round and round and round and round and round!" It was all I could do to hang on and keep her from falling off! As she was saying this, Jeff and I said, "Yes, up and down and round and round!" Oh my, what a ride, up and down and round and round - and nine months pregnant! Even Jeff got a little woozy! Jonathan loved it. He's been on two pony rides this fall and now a carousel!
