Just because it's Fathers' Day

We were out all afternoon visiting some friends of the girls', but stopped by to wish José a happy Fathers' Day before going home. Today was the last day of the teeny tiny neighborhood fair near their house, so we all walked over to give the girls one last chance to go on the rides.

Ordinarily I would go to bed and post the pictures tomorrow, but since it's Fathers' Day I'll stay up late and do it now, so the fathers who were not around for the actual day can at least enjoy the photos sooner rather than later.

Here's the one father figure we did see in person today:

And Yolanda, who smiles a lot in real life and very seldom in pictures. Unless, as it turns out, Julia is the one taking the picture:

Here's the little row of rides - off to the other side there was also a strip of food vendors and a row of games of chance.

There were three illuminated rides, and a trampoline lurking in the shadows. Apparently there was some kind of light on it when José and Yolanda brought the girls before, but this evening all it had was some stray bit of street light and the illumination from the back of the Tornado sign. Of course, none of the children seemed to care that it was dark...

They rode the merry-go-round a couple of times:

And Julia gave José and Yolanda each a mild coronary by doing (gasp!) this:

And, finally, the Tornado. When the girls went to the fair without me last weekend, they said this was their favorite ride, and they described it something like this:

When I saw it in person this evening (and used my flash), I found it to be more like this:

Then, after the ride stopped, I turned the flash back off and got this:

Wow! Thanks for the show. I've sent that last photo home to add to my screensaver.
