Italiano Festival

We're back to doing stuff now. Stuff besides unpacking. We had an awesome time at the Italiano Festival in Westport last weekend. I won a family four pack of ride bracelets on a radio station (because, ahem, I was the 9th caller. Go me.) so we went on the three or four rides the kids could go on a bunch o' bunch o' times. This included the princess girl horses: The "Dizzy Dragons." (We're inside of a giant dragon that spins in a circle and makes adults who are too old for this kind of ride want to throw up, and also makes small preschoolers fall out of their seats on to the floor which, apparently, makes fathers laugh and mothers have a heart attack. Okay. Minor heart attack. These pictures were before the ride started. Needless to say, we only went on this one once.):
"Who is about to have mixed feelings about this ride once it starts? This guy!"There were helicopters:And Scarlett played the "pop the balloon with a dart" game where she actually popped 2 balloons with the first of three darts and was so horrified by the "POP!" that she refused to throw any more. But she won this cute puppy. The highlight of the day was the Ferris Wheel. Good thing that we rode the rides for free. It would have been $20 for a family of four to ride this ride. Craaa-zzzy.

Looking for our car.We let Scarlett get an airbrush tattoo.
Sheer heaven.
And that, folks, was our day.

Do I really have to write more posts saying how much I hate you for doing stuff we're not doing?
