This evening, our ward had a carnival to raise money for the youth. I was really impressed. You could tell that a lot of people put in some serious time and work. We actually didn't sign up for anything, and were planning to take it all in stride with our five, but at the last minute some friends of ours got sick and asked us to man the dunk tank. (Sorry Jetts, hope you feel better soon.)

It ended up being a hit. We had such a blast. The girls watched long enough that they wanted a turn sitting under the soaker. There was just a box up above and it didn't look like it would hold that much water. It was cleverly deceptive. Here is Robyn throwing to drench Nathan. She actually got him twice.

But revenge is sweet. I love how you can see him grinning in the background while Tyler showed Robyn what the deluge was all about.

Oh, and Tyler hit the target twice as well.

June had her turn being doused. I hit the target even while holding Pearl. (Okay, I had to throw it a few extra times.)

Daisy was happy because although we didn't take her around to all the booths, she got a whole thing of cotton candy to herself. She ended up with the five o'clock cotton candy shadow. (And facepaint.)

Horse rides were a favorite. I made the girls save their tickets until the end since the horses came later. I think it was worth it.

Pearl was chill the whole time. She even made a little boyfriend. He sat and fed her cotton candy and shared his sucker.

I guess it is never too young to use your feminine wiles to coax sweets from the boys.
So fun.

What amazing pictures! I wish I lived nearby so you could teach me how to use my D90 correctly. What a fun outing!
