Special People Day

Here's another reason I love the carnival. Every year they open one day for special people.
It is a wonderful opportunity for people with disabilities to get to enjoy the carnival.
The improvement association provides free rides, food and games.
A few years back my dad was in a rehab after a bad motorcycle accident.
His rehab brought him to the carnival on this wonderful day and I think that it brought him some joy. So why did we come this year?Mikey has a very hard time with long lines and the commotion of big crowds tends to set him off. Now don't get me wrong, we had a blast at the carnival when we went a couple nights before. But, it was tense. It was so nice to not have the lines. Mikey and Luke could go ride to ride and get on pretty quickly. They had a blast. They even discovered the roller coaster. They loved it so much... They rode it five times. To make the day even better we got to spend it with MomMom and PopPop.
