Friday Night @ Kaboom-Town!

*******************************************************
So, I worked Friday, but after work, we got a jump start on the 4th of July Festivities. We headed out to Addison's Kaboom-Town.


:)
It was crowded! But the weather wasn't tooooo bad. There was a light breeze, so that was nice.

They had a little kid area set up with rides. Cool, right? The prices: ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? So, the tickets were $1 each. Each ride cost $2 or $3. Yuck. I was not a fan of the kiddie ride pricing!

So...the first ride---well, sadly, we have no pictures. It was a little mini-roller-coaster. I was going to ride with Gage. Got up there, gave them SIX tickets. "No, Miss. You're too big." {I should have said, "Are you calling me 'fat'????!!!!", but I didn't.} So, I convinced Gage to ride alone. That didn't last long. They stopped the ride to let my child off---and then they started it again to let the other kiddos finish out their turn.

We moved to something a bit more calm....


To be perfectly honest, Gage wasn't really into this either! {Lucky us! Now we don't have to drop a small fortune for Gage to ride 20 different things!} He smiled for the picture, but that was about it...

Gage enjoyed showing us how strong he is, and winning an inflatable toy {which of course he has banged all over the house since then....}



They had planes flying overhead. We loved it. We've got to take this little guy to an air show!




And then---after dark, the planes put on a light show of their own.


...but I need to back up on the time-line a bit...
We left the big crowded area & went to grab a spot to sit & wait for the fireworks.
The boys ate a burger; I had a hot dog. Gage got a snow-cone.


That was fun for a little bit...but the crowd was encroaching on our space. The ants were making their way onto our blanket, which was not nearly big enough for all three of us {in my mind, the blanket was so much larger when I grabbed it to take with us for the fireworks. When we unfolded it---I was unpleasantly surprised. Hubby was right when he told me that it wouldn't be big enough. THERE. I SAID IT. Hubby was right. It was bound to happen eventually, right?}

So...we asked Gage if he wanted to go back by the car to watch the fireworks. No. Of course not.
So, we bribed him with a $5 light up sword thing.

And---we sat. And waited. And waited.



And, Gage could not have cared any less about the fireworks. He was so preoccupied with the hotel that was back to our left. As we were waiting for the fireworks, there was a little boy up in the hotel looking out one of the windows. He had a light up sword too. So, Gage & the little boy were having some sort of sword fight about 300 yards apart from their opponent. When the fireworks finally started, Gage was preoccupied with the people in the hotel windows, and he was convinced that they were all looking at him with his light up sword. {Yes, Gage, the world truly does revolve around you, doesn't it? Heaven forbid they be looking at the fireworks in the sky! Silly goose!}






So, the fireworks were great. I made the comment that I thought the whole 'fireworks to music' was stupid, and never really seemed to match up...until they played "You Raise Me Up" which happens to be one of my favorite songs, and then the fireworks were going too. It was just great! I totally ate my words with 'fireworks to music' thing being stupid. Suddenly, I loved it! So, there you go...

The traffic leaving was unreal! ...but, expected.
We'll definitely do it again....but next time---we'll have a bigger blanket, a cooler, probably get there earlier....or later & just watch the fireworks! I guess we'll see next year!

lol. Bayley didn't seem to care much about the fireworks, either. She was more interested in the kids around her.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin to get real income.
It's all about how to select a proper partner who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
