This past weekend we went up to my parents house and we were lucky enough to be there for Camp Verde's "Fort Verde Days". I think it's a celebration of the town, and if anything it gave us an activity to do while we were there. It started with a town parade and then a carnival. Small town fun was had by all!!!

The parade was entertaining...I will say with some surprise. The people in the parade were handing out or really throwing out candy so the boys were all over that. There's nothing like candy at 9:30 in the morning!!! YUM!!!

Next, we moved on to the carnival and there were lots of rides and fun for the boys. Cutter was done after 2 rides (SHOCKER) but Christian could have gone all day over and over...even after a ride called "The Tornado"!

"The Tornado" was Collin's idea and I was trying my best to not be the uptight mom/wife...but seriously I couldn't believe Collin really thought Christian was old enough for this ride! After numerous over the fence conversations with Collin (including the make sure you can grab him if he starts shifting about in his seat convo.) I lost and they went.

Of course our wild child LOVED it!!!
1 point for Daddy and an I told you so for Mommy.

The afternoon came to an end with a final meltdown for Christian which involved many ear piercing screams, lots of falling on the ground, and plenty of crying all the way back to the car. It was sooooo LOVELY!!! Anyway...we made it back to home base and peace was restored.
