Toad Suck Daze!

Yep, you read that right. Toad Suck Daze. It is a big deal around here. We heard about it time and again from locals, and we just had to go see what all the fuss was about. Turns out it is a big festival centered around a town named Toad Suck.

 

There were rides, games, frog races, pony rides, a petting zoo and all other sorts of fun that only a small town fair can provide. We had a blast! The kids had their first real carnival rides.

April’s face changed from a smile to pure terror after the ride got going. She seemed to settle down after the first few swings and enjoyed the rest of the ride. If you look closely, you can see that Joshua got more enjoyment from his sister’s terror than the ride itself..,

There was a tour of the fire station, complete with climbing into the fire truck. The fire fighters were great with the kids and passed out stickers.

Joshua challenged the rock wall and won! Not only once, but twice! We were so proud and he made sure everyone heard the siren as he held the button perhaps a bit longer than necessary. That’s my boy!
