Took my kids to the carnival,I got them the wrist band for 10.. and I decided to get me one. And man do I feel old. It was fun seeing them smile and being excited. But I feel like I got run over by a bus.my legs hurt,my arm hurts and I am exhausted. I guess it's down hill for me.I am getting old.do you ever feel old and relize you can't do what your children do anymore.. and tomorrow is another busy day.. I am going be to crawling to my car after tomorrow night.. 😅

I don't do rides but I would love if the wrist bands here were only $10. They are $20 here. We went on a Tuesday and my girls had a blast.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to ride any rides because I've had spinal surgery. Before surgery I used to love riding on carnival rides. Despite getting sick to the point of throwing up! It was worth the misery seeing the smile on my son's face!

Now days I just hit up the carnival for cotton candy and funnel cakes. I stuff my face while watching my son ride and have fun ;)

The carnivals here are free to get in but I think the fair is like $10 to get in.

It's kids day today so it's actually 15 if you buy at the fair.but we bought it ahead of time and got it for 10.. I wouldn't spend much more than that. My older boy is not huge fan of the big rides and my younger boy can't go on everything. (He won't go on the baby rides because he's not a baby)and he's too short for the big boy rides.. he did get to go on alot though today..

With the price of individual tickets and how many you need for a ride we definitely got our money's worth with the wrist bands and I got my annual sausage and pepper sandwich. Lol

Take some ibuprofen!! I know exactly all too well what you're saying and have felt this way for a long time due to scoliosis affecting my back so badly.
