oktoberfest

I'd been looking forward to Oktoberfest since......the first day that it got really hot in the summer.  Oktoberfest is the un-official beginning of Fall to me.

It wouldn't really be Oktoberfest without our traditional pizza dinner beforehand:

I knew we weren't going to get past the rides (and closer to the CRAFTS) without a fight so we let the girls go on a few.

Arissa was prepared to ride her favorite ride solo, except as soon as she sat down, these two little boys hopped right up next to her.  It was cute.

Then came the Frog Hopper.  Mariah's favorite ride.  All 3 girls got on.

So much fun!


Then the ride started.

And the way each girl felt about the ride can be clearly seen here on their faces:

Mallory is not laughing.  She is screaming/crying hysterically.

But she made it through.  And I bet she'll be on that ride again cause she'll forget how terrified she was.


All 3 girls brought their wallets....hooray!  That meant that all WE had to spring for was the pizza & the ride tix.  The rest was all on the girls themselves, and Jesse was able to save a little somethin for the beer garden!


Here, Mallory's face is saying "can you hurry up and take the picture so I can go spend every last penny in my wallet on stuff I won't play with after 2 hours?"

These girls are lucky I can photo-shop those fingers outta my pics!!

One of the things they wasted spent their hard-earned money on was....sweets.


Highly over-priced sweets.

But watching them do their own transactions is always cute, and always entertaining for the clerk too:

"Please take our hard-earned money that our Mommy & Daddy gave us to teach us how to save for things we really want, and in return please give us some sugar with added sugar and a sprinkle of sugar on top":



Photobucket



Mmmm sugar.  Mariah's came in the form of a Root Beer Float:

Arissa wanted hers in the form of shaved ice:

Then they all ran around in a little sugar-frenzy with their empty wallets until it was time to leave.


I so LOVE Oktoberfest. 

I do not love the smell of bratwurst cooking.

GROSS.
