Who Would Have Thought . . .

. . . that tacky carnivals exist outside of the south and smalltown USA.

Apparently unhealthy food, overpriced games and knock-off Disney rides are abudant world wide. Thank goodness! On Monday night Jesse was returning from soccer and noticed that a neighborhood in Madrid was hosting a carnival. I've been eager to get out and walk as much as possible so we didn't think twice about heading to Barrio del Pilar on Tuesday night.



We both are suckers for things like carnivals. We love the atmosphere, and even the greasy unhealthy food. And now that we have a 2 year old . . . we LOVED watching her take in the sights.


The food was actually (probably) healthier than Iowa State fair food.



I figured if the food was gross, it can only help contractions along-right?



Renae had no interest in the hot dog or Jesse's grilled bread/pepper/chorizo thingy.
She did of course eat the french fries . . .



We let Renae go on one ride (the cheapest one.)



This was the look on her face most of the time . . .



This was also a common look throughout the night.



I had to teach her how to eat cotton candy. (By the way, that huge thing was only 1 euro!)



Yet another look we didn't expect. Common Renae-its pure sugar!



We will never grow up . . .



Barrio del Pilar-thank you for a fun, random night!

Massons! Unexpected and good to hear from you. Stalked your blog a bit, your daughter is adorable. So what are you up to in Spain? And we can not figure out how you came across our blog?

If you want to email me instead of have a conversation by blog comments, its brandondahm@gmail.com.

Cheers.

Poor Renae...looks like sensory overload to me. She just didn't know what to make of it all. Glad you were able to get out for one last night of fun and excitement before little guy comes along. Only 2 more days until Nana comes! We're waiting for THE call!

Cracks me up that the 2 year old doesn't seem to be having as much fun as the grown-ups!! Julie-you look so cute!!! Can't wait to hear that little Eugene is on his way! I told Tim 20 times this weekend that he'd better call me the minute he knows anything!
