McClure Bean Soup Festival

On Thursday, Chris and I drove back to my hometown to attend the 115th annual Bean Soup Festival. Its just a small carnival that they hold in my hometown every year. It is also, where, 15yrs ago I bungee jumped. Yes, I was only 14 and trust me, age has taught me fear!

They no longer offer bungee jumping, or much of anything else for that matter, but the kids still had lots of fun. We got the wristband option for the rides, which was better in the long run. They got to ride for 5hrs for $15 each. The rides weren't that great but they had hours of fun for $30, so it was worth it.
The kids loved riding on the Disney Characters
but the ride didn't go up and down like
it is supposed to.

They must have gone down this slide
about 50 times, which paid for the wristband.

I got suckered onto the Ferris wheel. I hate Ferris Wheels and Jason had already ridden it 3 times by himself.

Grayson on the Jet Ski ride. It went really fast and they both liked it.

Jason and Grayson on the "bus" with their cousin Ethan.

We ended up leaving the carnival around 9:30. Jason had school the next morning and it was an hour drive home. They both fell asleep in the car and Grayson slept until 10am the next morning! They keep asking when they can go again. I guess they had fun!
