The 2008 National Peanut Festival ~ Dothan

We had so much fun!  Granted, we could have went somewhere a lot nicer for the cost of tickets to ride the admission to get in the festival, but it was fun.  And that’s all that matters, right?! *smiles*
The kids rode most of the rides, using all the tickets but 9 and those 9 were then used for Kayla to ride a “big kid ride”, so Kayla, Rebecca and I rode….well, you’ll see the video of it at the end…
In the mean time, here are the girls..Kayla, Mirah and Kelsie!

As you can see they had a lot of fun!  When I was Kayla’s age, I wanted so bad to go and do things like this.  Only did we go one time, and this was with my niece and nephew.  I want Kayla and Kelsie to enjoy things I didn’t.  But aren’t all parents like that?!?!
And…now, Kayla’s ride of her life…Literally.  And all I could do was pray to God that we would survive. 
Don’t get me wrong now, I love  roller coasters and rides that go upside down, but, I kept coming up and the over the shoulders bar kept inching up.  Instead of holding on the shoulder part, I was holding onto the bars beside me.  Kayla rode between Rebecca and I.  I doubt that you can follow or find us.  We tried and if you pause and play then yes, you are able to.  I am wearing a turquoise top and sitting on the end, Rebecca is wearing khaki pants, we are sitting on the silver, and Kayla is sitting between the two of us.  There is some guy on the other side of Rebecca.  That is if you want to try and find us. *smiles*
It was a lot of fun all in all, we have all decided that one weekend this Spring, we are all headed to Valdosta, GA, to Wild Adventures. 
I hope everyone had a great weekend!

WOOHOO what fun. I can't hardly ride rides like that any more. Back when I was younger you couldn't have stopped

Glad you made it through the ride and had fun at the festival.
