  • Birthday Girl


    Our sweet Catybug turned 10 this past Monday, here she is after her birthday dinner on our way over to the Enchanted Forest for an evening of carnival rides. Isn’t she turning into a gorgeous young lady? I think so. Of course I fully realize this can only mean trouble, having such a smart, sweet, pretty young lady as a daughter. Especially now that we’re in the double digits.

    Her new favorite carnival ride? The Tilt-o-Whirl, of course! Smart girl, she is. This was her first carnival experience, yes we lead a sheltered life. (Really, who wants to ride rides and catch bugs when ya scream out here in farm country?) She and I rode the Tilt-o-Whirl 4-5 times. I think I was the only one screaming my fool head off in it! Something about that ride just takes me back and makes me feel like a kid. Something else about that ride reminds me that I still have 20 pounds to lose – I think it has to do with the G-force that whips the excess poundage up against the seat when you fly around in circles.


    Of course this whole thing got me curious, what’s your favorite carnival ride? Are you a roller-coaster-er, or a spinner?

    wow, you daughter is beautiful! such pretty eyes. :)
    hope she had a great birthday!

    Carnival – nah not for me, I am the one that stands and hold everyones coats and bags! LOL. But then I have 86lbs to lose so imagine the G force on that!

    take care

    Sounds like you had fun Caty Bug! Yes Leanne, I think that soon you may have your hands full. Caty is a beautiful girl and we miss her so. At the beach this weekend, my girl was asked for her phone number! Do you believe that?

    As far as the carnival goes. No spinning or repetitive movements…put me on a roller coaster every time. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, clara

    She is beautiful. You said the thing that makes the difference: she is smart. If she keeps a level head, the problems will be minimal.

    My favorite used to be the scrambler or the tilt-o-whirl, but now with the migraines, I get motion sickness really easy. I mostly don’t go on rides anymore. :(

    What a beautiful photograph of a gorgeous young woman. And what a world we live in… one that has many many products for hair coloring so yours doesn’t have to turn white as she moves through her teen years and beyond.

    You must be bustin’ a button! (proud momma)

    Oh… and I don’t get on the rides any more. Last time I did (decades ago) I got sick. :indifferent:

    Very pretty girl and her eyes tell the story! Great shot! Me I hate all rides! When i was a young teen my best friends mother owned a carnival. And we rode what ever we wanted. I don’t remember the ride but she took me up in it and had them go extra fast and long. I have never gotten on one since then. They all make me quesy!! Good for you that you are able to get on them! :meow:

    Leanne, that is one beautiful child you have there… so pretty. She looks like she would be a lot of fun. She is going to break lots of hearts I’m sure. Hope you all had a good day with her for her b-day.

    Happy birthday! Sorry if I’m late.

    My favorite of all time I think is the Pirate Ship, it was also the first “scary” ride I ever went on.
