Friday Fun Flick-Around and Around We Go


This month was my little boy’s first experience on a carnival ride. I wanted to try him on the little cars, but the carnival we chose didn’t have them. After some deliberation, my husband and I finally decided to try the Merry-Go-Round. After all, what kid doesn’t like a horse? Well, evidently our Lil’ Lewie, that’s who.
The first clip, which I think is pretty funny, shows my little boy going around three times on his horse. Every time he passes by me, you can hear my high-pitched voice go an octave higher as I start yelling, "Hi Lewie! Hi Lewie!" Then, there's silence until he passes by again (sound familiar?) The only one who’s excited is my husband who is waving to me like it’s his first ride. Lil’ Lewie, on the other hand, is staring blankly in front of him, expressionless.

In the second clip, after one more time of going around, my little boy decides he doesn’t want to be on the horse anymore. So, for the rest of the ride, my husband is holding a less than thrilled kid. So much for getting this exciting moment on film. I mean, we did, but it didn’t exactly turn out the way we expected. I wish they had those darn little cars… Oh well, there's always a next time.


  1. Both the videos cracked me up! I think my favorite was the 2nd, only because I can sooo see Georgia doing that. When she decides she's done, that's it! You're totally going to love these videos in a few years, if you don't already!

  2. You're so right. I do love these videos. It may have been disappointing that he didn't like the merry-go-round at first, but I now I do find it funny. It's also a story I can tell him when he gets older, especially when he's at the age when he's begging me to go to an amusement park!

  3. Ha ha son was less than thrilled on his first merry-go-round ride. I didn't have a video camera with me, but I have pictures of my mom holding him while he SCREAMED bloody murder. It's probably a good thing I didn't have a video camera, I'm horrible at not laughing when he does things like that! This summer we're attempting a trip to the same amusement park I went to at his age, so it'll be interesting to see if he likes the cars, trains, etc!
