Happy Faces

We spent a sunny day on Toronto Island and YoungerSon bought an all day pass for the kids rides at Centreville. The rides have been there for years.... YoungerSon remembers some of them from when he was a tiddler. But they are updated all the time. It was a perfect day, not crowded, not hot, nobody cried (well, not much, only when they told Emma she was too little to go on the bumper cars, and that was REALLY LOUD!), everyone had a spiffing good time.


No explanation needed for these photographs, just look at the happy faces.

Somehow Emma managed to stay on the Frog Hopper for 5 rides, she smiled nicely at the operator and just refused to get off.








Bumper bulls? That's a new one. The twins were told they were too little to ride, big disappointment.

It is lovely to see such happy faces. Children certainly enjoy all the fun of the fair.

You have twins!! Oh, they are so adorable!! We do not have these rides unless a travelling carnival comes around. Your son is so cute with his front tooth out. And Emma is a doll! She is so brave to go on that big ride! And her smile shows how much fun she is having. Beautiful children!!

Those babies have grown so quickly! I remember when you first announced their arrival !

You are still allowed to bump?

The name changed over here a few years ago - they are not "bumper cars" as they were when I was a child, they are now "dodgems", which totally ruined it all.

Great photos!

I just love those family memory times.
You look like you had a terrific time.
It's so hard when the Smalls are just too little for some rides.
Love Emily's persistence on the Frog Hopper.
My Grands used to love that ride too.

Oops...sorry ...I meant Emma not Emily...my bad.

Looks a great place. It would suit me, because people say that I'm in my second childhood! Yippee!

Nice to know both children and adults could spend such a pleasant day. I can imagine how excited the little ones. I feel like that I hear their merry shouts.

So so adorable!!! They are precious treasures. Those smiles say a million words.

It looks like your weather has been warmer than ours. Wouldn't be caught dead in shorts lately.

I agree with you, "no explanation needed for these beautiful photos, just look at the happy faces"! :)
