Two times lucky!

At almost any carnival, there are games to play. Some that give away pictures, candy and stuffed animals. There are throwing balls at bottles, darts and balloons and simply picking a rubber duck.

And then there is the game that I never win. I have been trying this game since I was a little kid. Boo wanted to play and won...not once but twice!

When we arrived at the carnival on Saturday Boo wanted to do the rides first, of course. It was perfect because there weren't a lot of people by the rides. After her couple rides, we made our way to the few games they had this year. Boo didn't want to throw a ball at some bottles, she didn't want to pick a duck...she wanted to win a goldfish. Man....

So, after two throws out of her 7...she hit pay dirt! She won her first fish. She promptly named her Kim...Kim Possible that is. She was giddy. She insisted that we call her Grandmas and Grandpas to let them know she got her first pet.

After the fireworks, we told her we could try to win one more on our way out. She got a little excited.

This time, it took 4 shots before she got another, but she did it. She named this one Ron...Ron Stoppable. Are you seeing the same pattern here.

Should I mention that Hubby and I both took a cup full of balls, and didn't get a single thing. Still can't win!

So, we now have two fish, that have made it through two nights. We got the fish tank, and food. Boo was so excited to go to the pet store that she drove me NUTS asking what time it was. But, now she sits and watches Ron and Kim, and has very important conversations.

Congrats, Boo, on your two new fish! I love the names!

I remember always trying to win a goldfish at carnivals when I was little too.

I think I was successful once, but alas, he didn't last very long.

And those are the fish that stay around for like, 20 years! Congrats on the new pets ;0)
