Carnival rides aren't as fun as I remember...



We went to the Utah County Fair a few weeks ago with my family and we had a pretty good time....up until we had to go on the rides! Even just last year I thought they were fun. It may look like I'm having fun in the pictures, but really I'm smiling to keep from crying. After going on two rides at this year's fair I've decided that I'm giving up on those things. The first ride we went on (in the picture above) was kind of fun although it was one of those ones that you can't hold your head up because they are spinning around so fast. But then when we went on the second ride right after, I was a little nervous. They lock you in this monkey cage and spin you forwards and backwards a million times. Last year, not so scary. This year, I was freakin out and all I could think of was that the ride operator with just a few teeth isn't going to do much for me if the ride door pops open. I was sick to my stomach for an hour or so after those two stupid rides. I'm skipping the rides from now on!

Isn't that funny? Remember how moms were so weird for not liking them? I'm still trying to pretend that I like them as well as I used to, but I'm good after about two shots at the Zipper.

I am right there with you on the whole roller-coasters-freak-me-out thing. I really think I am going to be the 1 in a million that dies on one. Sounds like you guys are loving having your parents living there. That is so fun. Hope to see you guys at Christmas. We are planning on coming the 26th through the 1st.
