Y is for Yo Yo!

We went to the fair this week - 3 days of fair going actually - and those of you who know my story realize what a gift that was! We had a blast - ate lots of junk fun, spent too much money, and just had fun! BUT to Lizzie the fair meant the Yo Yo ride!! She rode this several times every single day! She was pretty excited. This was her first carnival - since I was physically unable to do things that this until just recently. Poor sheltered little thing!!

She finally got brave and raised her hands - even if it was for a brief second!

I love this one - this was her first time on it - see the terror on her face and the death grip on the chains?!
I want to also use Y to apologize to YOU - that Z you all commented on last week - was left over from the Z of the week before - was very convenient for me! :) but realize I cheated a bit... thanks for loving me anyway - and hey - Cassie never even noticed, she thought she had read it somewhere else before!! Cassie - I love you dear!!! that made my day!!

I can't help but notice how Liz has grown this summer. She soon won't be Your little girl, but Your Young lady!! She'll probably always yearn to ride on the Yo Yo though. ha!

I'm with Cassie - I just noticed sweet little Lizzie is growing before our eyes! Love that death grip she has on that ride! Cute!

Michele, Looks like we were both commenting on each others blog at the same time! Regarding the Zombie post: Glad you got a kick out of my senility! hehe.

That's a good Y post. My kids used to like that ride, too. There used to be one off the boardwalk at the beach where we used to go. Great pictures. Looks like fun!

You my dear are a miracle!
great Y post. This yo yo ride was made for Lizzie since it rhymes with her name-dizzie!.

Great Y word.
