Day Twenty-three

24 09 2008

I had big plans to take some fun photos at the mall today, but I ended up being too busy kid wrangling. I only took three, hurriedly, while holding Colby before the carousel started, and I didn’t think any of them worked out. This ended up being a pleasant surprise.
I blogged about how wonderful the Rexburg carousel is last month, and was sighingly nostalgic on the ride today. Sure, they had a chicken, a cat, a rooster, and a dragon to ride on, but it was entirely too smooth. Give me a little shudder here and there–that’s realistic. Like a real beast quivering underneath you–careful, keep your seat! That one’s got a wild streak in him, but he’ll settle down if you have a firm hand on the reins. Show him who’s boss. Yee-ha!
