Missing month, part four

Toward the end of September we packed our suitcases and took a trip to the Cities to visit family and celebrate birthdays.  My middlest boy is now eight years old.  Sigh.  Time seems to be speeding up as my kids get older.  Or rather, as I get older.  My Dad warned me this would happen.

We invited most of the family along on a trip to Valleyfair.  It was a beautiful day.  At this time of year only half the rides are open, but because of school only half the crowds are there. 

Also, at this time of year Valleyfair (or ValleyScare as it is called) is decorated for Halloween.

While the little kiddies rode the little kiddie rides, my brother entertained the older folk with his mesmerizing dance technique.

We packed lunches to cut down on the cost.  My sister was able to get tickets through her credit union for 2/3 price.  We all had a great time.

My sister brought along her first born babe, my niece Camryn, now five months old.  She is a big big sweetie pie.  And never fussed for a moment that whole afternoon.  Should I warn my sister about them growing too fast?  And time speeding up?  In no time at all Camryn will be eight years old herself, and my boys will be in their teens.  Aaah!  I'm not ready for teenagers!
