Saturday we had a babysitter date night so we could go to the Riverfest carnival.
It made me feel like a teenager again...at least for awhile.
The first ride was this one--a hang glider type ride called the Cliff Hanger.
It was a lot of fun and we actually rode it twice.
Then we rode the Tornado.
There was no upside-down or loopdiloops or dangling in the air. But there was lots and lots (and lots) of spinning. This photo was taken at the beginning of the ride. Later we both felt very ill and kind of old. But, a boy in another pod threw up on his older sister, so maybe we aren't that old.
So, we took a break in the park and just watched the sky for awhile.
After that, we were brave enough for a cold beverage and the ferris wheel.
(No funnel cake on this date.)
There was a great view of the Rock River at the top of the ride.
So, all in all, it was a pretty adventurous date. But there was no way we were going to ride this one.
