Dreamland Carnival & Victoria Circus
Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park
June 28th - July 7th!

Guess what? My Mommy, Grammy, and Pop-Pop took me to something called a "carnival-circus" today! What can I say...I was just in awe of everything I saw and heard. At the carnival, I got a chance to ride on some really fun things, eat, walk, and run until I was ready to drop. My Mommy's friend, Marsha, came to the carnival too. They got on some rides together and both of them screamed a lot. My Pop-Pop got on some rides with me but there were other rides that the people at the carnival wouldn't let me get on with him because they said I was too little. My Grammy was just running around taking pics of everything in site!

At 7:00pm, the circus started and I saw a man walk across a wire with a pole, then he rode across the wire with a bike, and then he walked across the wire with a pole and a black hood on his head! There was one moment when everyone got real scared because he almost fell off the wire. Somehow, he didn't fall and we all clapped for him when he finished. Then, I saw two guys on something called "motorcycles" riding around in this big round ball! I thought they were going to crash into each other but they didn't. A clown came around and asked all the kids if they wanted a "coloring book?" Since I don't know how to color yet, I told Mommy she didn't have to get me one (Yeah, right!). Just as it began to get dark, all the lights on the rides came on and everything looked even better. Shortly after dark, we all headed for home. I give the carnival-circus StarStarStarStar for fun and your kids will too!

Here are all the pics my Grammy took to share. There were so many that she put them all in grid blocks. Make sure you click on them so you can get the close-up view of all the sights! Grammy told me that there will be lots of fun things to do around Philly this week because we are going to celebrate something called "Independence Day" on July 4th. I'll even let you in on a little secret...if you click on the Sunoco Welcome America logo, there's a Philly Fun Guide schedule with all the things you can see and do this week hiding behind it.

ShhhDon't tell Grammy I told you!

FOOTNOTE: If you decide to go to the carnival-circus, admission is free. However, you may want to consider purchasing a wrist band for $ 20.00 (as opposed to tickets) so you can ride as much as you want at no extra charge. The cost for food is about the same as you would pay at the movies (higher than it needs to be). Pass it on!

Siblings are the people we practice on. They teach us about
caring, cooperation, fairness, and kindness the hard way!


Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by and come back again!
