Riding the Carousel

Today is the day that we are taking the family to Mansfield to ride the Carrousel. (They use the French spelling.) Here is a little info from their website in case you would like to go.richland carrousel park sign

This is a different place, also located in Mansfield, but I am not sure whether the public is invited inside. They actually make the carousels. There is a virtual tour on their website that I found very interesting. http://www.carouselworks.com/home.htm Here is a description from their website:

I am so excited to be going and hope that the weather cooperates. Jim says not to worry because the carrousel is under roof anyway but pictures are always better with sunshine.
