This year was a little different as it marks both an end and a beginning. My niece has joined the Coast Guard, and we went to the big Dixie Classic Fair in Winston-Salem the day before she shipped out for basic training for one last uncle-niece day.
|Haven't even left the ground yet!|
|Pretty sure they haven't got these in the Coast Guard!|
This is also Caroline's first year at fairs. It certainly won't be her last!
|Mountain Glory Festival, Marion, NC|
|Classic cars. Despite Caroline's love for cars, the sound of a hopped-up Chevelle made her nervous. Maybe because it was enough to shake the ground!|
We thought Caroline would enjoy the bouncy houses that were set up. It took her a little while to figure them out, but she quickly got the hang of it.
But what about a big slide?
|How hard can it be for somebody like moi?|
|This ladder is harder to climb than the one on the playground!|
|A boost from her godmother and...|
|This is a BIG bouncy house!|
|LET ME OUTA HERE!!!!|
I wonder how she'll do next year?
