Popcorn Festival

Such big blue eyes!!!

So it's the beginning of September and in the Tipton household that means it's the beginning of FESTIVAL SEASON!!  
Since moving back to the Marshall Area, we've been big fans of the Casey Illinois Popcorn Festival.   We went a little later in the day than usual, so we didn't end up with too many pictures because I don't like the flash setting (everything comes out blurry & with red eye).
This is the first year that we've actually 'done' rides with the kids.  Ahnna is pretty laid back when it comes to telling her that we don't have any more tickets, but Harrison is a little harder to convince.  One look at the piggy train and the regular train & I knew that our previous ticket tactics were things of the past.  We went the ever-popular bracelet route and I can say that the money spent (although it hurt to shell it out....) was completely worth it.  The kids rode rides for a good two and half hours, ate a cupcake, played on the playground and fell asleep on the way home.

Piggy Train.

This is right before the operator had to stop the ride because Harrison was trying to jump out and examine the track....

'I ride Nemo's!'

Ahnna is in the 'I like to have my picture taken with my mouth open' phase.  

I'll just mention that she ONLY ate the icing.  The rest of the cupcake was abandoned....but it was pretty good icing.
