Blog Hopping

The Crazy Mouse.




Today I am participating in a blog hop. You are supposed to post your favorite picture.




This is one of my all time favorites. It makes me laugh out loud every time I see it. It was taken almost two years ago at the Texas State Fair. This ride is called the Crazy Mouse. It looks like a kiddie ride, but looks are deceiving. It scared me to death. (as you can tell by my face and my grip on Marcus) Our friends Courtney and Stephen are on the left and Marcus and I are on the right.


The really funny thing is that Stephen and I rode it together the year before. Our spouses didn't want to go on it. I was brave until we got to the top of the hill and then I just had to hold on to him and apologize to his wife later. We convinced Courtney and Marcus to go on it this time. And we still talk and laugh about it two years later. Marcus now calls Courtney "The Nutcracker" because of the impressive magnitude at which she can open her mouth. We paid $6 for this picture and it was the best $6 we have ever spent.

I have been following your blog for awhile now. I love the way you have decorated your home, it is amazing! Recently I noticed that I think you live in Grpaevine, TX. If so I'm your neighbor, what a small world.

That is funny! I posted a similar one about a week ago. Son of a friend of mine. Five kids on the ride, four having the time of their lives & the son with the most indescribable grimace on his face you've ever seen! It is precious.

So glad you enjoy the pic, even if the ride was questionable! :)

I couldn't believe this because we have the same picture and it's probably my all-time favorite:

Isn't that hysterical?
