There is a carnival in town this weekend. We went last night because it was fireworks night. Ever since she heard we were going to the carnival she wanted to know if it had a ferris wheel. She wanted nothing more than to ride the ferris wheel. Luckily for her not only did they have a ferris wheel, but she was 1/2 inch taller than she needed to be to ride it. Seeing that she is only 5, and my husband and I are both scared to death of heights, we weren't sure if her riding the ferris wheel was a great idea. Fortunately for me, my husband took her and she had a blast. My husband didn't care for it much, but he managed. I just found it humorous that out of the 4 of us, the youngest is the bravest. I am just worried when she hits the 48 inch mark and wants to ride the really crazy rides.
