Tonight was opening night of De Soto Days, our one-stoplight town’s annual carnival and festival complete with food vendors, craft booths, and of course, a midway.
It is on the midway that one can nosh on corndogs, popcorn, Hawaiian ice, and fairy floss.
Yup, that spun sugar confection also known as cotton candy. It was introduced to the public as fairy floss at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair and it wasn’t until 1920 that the name officially changed to cotton candy.
Whether you call it fairy floss, cotton candy or “old women’s hair” (as they do in Greece, India and Israel), its spun sugar sweetness is hard to resist!
Personally, I think “fairy floss” is the ideal name of a treat for this little blue-eyed blond who has pixie-like hair and features!!!
Little man went for popcorn.
As you can see…it’s been raining. Not that a few showers are going to stop this mama from taking her kids to carnival!
Future jet fighter…
Tea cup craziness!
When I was a kid, I soooo wanted to join a carnival or circus. I thought it would be the most fantastic lifestyle…grow my hair freakishly long, see exotic places, travel year round, have my own “place”…
…not so much if you consider De Soto, Kansas “exotic” and a home on wheels luxurious living!
Wishing you all a great start to your weekend!
AND…THREE weeks from today we get to meet our little man. I got the sweetest 3D pics of his face at my OB appt. yesterday and hope to get them scanned and posted sometime soon.
