And the Lights! And the Sound!

I'm in the office and Mike is getting Donovan ready for bed in the next room.  This is difficult because we went to the CMU Carnival tonight and Donny won a ball at the Duck Pond and he doesn't want to put it down.

I've always loved amusement parks and carnivals--the mix of lights and movement and noise and music are really pretty, especially when an entire city of games and rides pops up in the middle of a parking lot, if only for a day or two. The CMU carnival is just that sort of ephemeral, beautiful confusion and we had a great time there with Donny, Donny's friend Leo and Leo's family. It was extra fun watching Donny and Leo get all excited for the rides--running between the Merry Go Round and the Motorcycles, taking turns copying each other. It was a lovely evening.
