An Hour at the Carnival

Every May, right around Mother’s Day, Rockwell Amusements brings the rain and its carnival–the two go hand in hand, and you can set your clock by both.

Something else you can count on is spending a whole lot of money.  Lots.

Drumroll, please:

First 25 tickets = $20

An additional 10 tickets = $10

Sponge Bob Square Pants Balloon = $10

Very loud, very plastic “Trumpet” = $5

According to my calculator, that is $45–for approximately one hour.

However, I am going to declare it worth it for after the carnival and on the eve of Mother’s Day 2009, Oscar said as he was drifting off to sleep, “Thank you, Mommy, for taking us to the carnival!  It was the best!”  And Edgar followed it up with, “Yes, it was!  I love you!”

Well worth $45–times a million–to hear those words and see these faces . . .



Happy Mother’s Day!
