Summerfest Day 1 - Ridetastic

Ah, Summerfest, how we do love you. Non-stop fat and sugar consumption, nausea-inducing rides, and capping the whole weekend off with a ridiculously late (and even more sugar-filled) evening of parade watching and fireworks oohing and aahing. All within a block of our house. The perfect summer kickoff.

The starter ride - a stunning success

The starter snack - a "tornado fry."  Also successful, although Sasha preferred the scones

The Fun Slide was especially fast this year making it... um... especially fun.  Apt naming, if not the most creative.

Ok, maybe not everybody enjoyed every ride.

But the girls enjoyed their motorcycle ride!

We weren't sure how WanYing would do on the rides, but she loved it all!

Going up!

Hey, I can see my house from here!

A fantastic view with two fantastic boys

The Gravitron - before.

The Gravitron - entrance.  Yes, Sasha insisted on going.  We figured, what's the worst that could happen?  Puke washes out!

The Gravitron - After.  Yep, she loved it!  Daddy, not so much.

The Gravitron Survivors.  All Sasha would say was, "more rides!  more rides!"

Fools that we are, we chased The Gravitron with a Tilt-a-Whirl ride.  Everybody kept their cookies in place, but I think this is the last year we'll all fit in one car!  I kind of didn't think about the part where more people = more weight = more spinning.  Ugh.  And after we got off, what did Sasha chant?  "More rides!  More rides!"
A thoroughly enjoyable Friday at the Orem Summerfest!
