Yesterday we all got up bright and early to make the 8:30 service at church. We wanted to go to church and Sunday School and still have plenty of time to make the annual Cumberland County Fair. Sunday they have a deal where you can get into the fair and ride unlimited rides for $5 a person with the presentation of a church bulletin between 1pm and 2pm. The lady at the counter was not playing around with these specific rules either. We waited in line for 30 minutes and got to the counter at 12:55pm and she would not even consider giving us the discount early. The policeman was standing guard right there, so rather than making a scene with our church bulletins in hand, we quietly stepped aside for 5 minutes and promptly stepped back into line to get our $5 price at 1 o’clock sharp. This cheap accountant (and her even cheaper husband) is not going to the fair unless we get a deal! (You can imagine how it killed us both to spend $4 for a drink (TIMES 4!!!) once inside the fair!!)
It’s actually funny because Brandon does not like rides. He wants to be a pilot when he grows up, yet he can’t take the kiddy rides. There is one photo of Brandon on his one and only ride of the year. Brandon has a big time scowl on his face and a death grip on the handles and Tim is laughing at him. Yes, his father continuously teases him. Lest you pity the poor boy with giant dimples, I must add--it goes both ways. Brandon teases Tim as well.
My idea of fun at the fair is taking photos. So here you go! Enjoy.
