Old ___ Days

Tonight was fun. I went to Old ___ Days with my sisters, brother-in-law, and some of my little sister's friends. It was a fair with rides and games and all sorts of (unhealthy) food. Tonight they were doing wristbands which allowed you to ride any ride unlimited. So we (my little sister, her friends, and me) all got wristbands and away we went! Our first ride was the Ali Baba. The girls were all screaming even though it wasn't that scary. I'm afraid of heights (as is my little sis) so I was a little unnerved but that didn't stop me from having a good time. Next up was the true test of the night...the Ring of Fire! It's this crazy ride where you go around in a loop going both directions. (I'll google it to see if I can find a picture!) I was so scared on that ride! As were my little sister and her friends. My little sister was almost in tears but she got through it okay. We went on the Cliff Hanger. That is a three person ride and there were four of us. So of course I was the odd one out. I ended up riding with two total strangers. AWKWARD! lol. We went on the Ferris Wheel. I rode by myself. It was enjoyable. :) We got snow cones. We went on Zero Gravity. You are in a circle and it lifts you up and spins you around. We went on the Ring of Fire again, only this time at night! It was so scary but it was still a lot of fun. We got funnel cakes. (I ate way too much and felt guilty) Then it was back on Zero Gravity. Finally, the night was over. I had a blast. I'm glad I got to go. It was my first time at a fair where I actually got to ride the rides. (Usually I just go to craft fairs. 0.o) Well my loves, it is late and I'm tired. Good end to an okay day.

I'm glad you had so much fun!! I'm sad that I can't do fair rides - I feel sick after just one or two!

They have a ring of fire at my local amusement park (Worlds of Fun) and it's a blast! Except they call it the Zulu. lol. Lots of fun though!

I'm glad you had a good day, and don't worry about your cal intake. Sometimes you need to indulge to get you through the other hard days when you're fasting and stuff. Besides, you probably worked it all off from all the screaming and walking around you did. :)
