Ever watched a Soap Box Derby??

This was the weekend before Grant was born. We happened to be in downtown Mansfield when they were having the soap box derby. We watched it for a little while before heading over to the restored carrousel that is a big attraction. And rightly so. I didn't take any pictures of them, but take my word for it, the carved wooden animals on the Mansfield Carrousel are just gorgeous. Everything from horses to cats to bears to ostriches!! And it's only .75 to ride. It was Meliah's first visit to a merry go round...and was a topic of conversation for many days afterwards.

Dad looking cool!

Dad and Meliah both looking cool!!

Intense competition. And if you don't steer straight, they've kindly provided straw bales to crash into, instead of jumping the curb , plowing through the crowd and causing a horrific accident. LOL Those things could do alot of damage, don't ya think!!
