Making FUN Happen

The girls and I have long been talking about going to ride a carousel that we'd heard about.
It only costs 1.00/rider for 4 minutes....and the proceeds go to a children's charity.

Can't get any better than that, huh?

We took a spin this afternoon and headed to ride the "notable" carousel.

It's gorgeous!
I was told it came to the U.S. from Argentina...in sections (obviously) that had to be assembled. 
I can't fathom that.
It's so ornate and in tip top shape.
It's also huge.

The girls rode one time, and then I joined them for another 4 minutes.
Simple.
Sweet.




We enjoyed talking to the lady retiree operator of the carousel (for 12 years).  
It's her part time job for pay.

She was very interested in hearing about the girls - their adoptions.
Very complimentary and seemingly "touched" by our adventures in life.

I mean there was circus music playing - nifty!

We then bought and split 2 high falootin' cupcakes and drank free lemonade.

Talk about summer memories....we're making them!
