Posts Tagged ‘carousel’

Here I am with my mom and older sister at Jane’s Carousel in downtown/Dumbo Brooklyn. If you know anything about me you might know that I have a slight thing for carousels. They’re magical and the horses are so pretty. I love the colors and the gold and the lights. And it’s fun to play pretend.

So Jane’s Carousel finally opened this past weekend after being in a studio since the 80’s getting restored. I had walked by it in its studio two years or so ago so it was really exciting to see it finally in action. Since my mom and Emily were here, I had some partners in crime that I knew would check it out with me.

Here’s my mom and I getting ready for the ride to begin. My mom is holding the $2 card that you buy and they scan to let you in. Each one has apicture of a horse in it and it’s kind of cool. Also, $2 is not bad, actually. Also, I basically have this exact picture except with Kayti on a carousel in Chicago. Nice.

Emmy Boo is making a kissy face.

Since it’s official opening on Friday (and leading up to it) I had probably read every article about it on blogs and looked at every picture and everywhere I looked made me actually confused about exactly where it was – I knew it was between the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge but I had a hard time visualizing the space it was in so this picture should hopefully give you the right effect:

There you can see Brooklyn Bridge behind it and the glass case it’s in. Ah, I’m so happy it’s finally out and working! See you again very soon, I’m sure, Jane’s Carousel.

Happy Fourth of July! That was yesterday. Let me introduce you to a favorite American past time: baseball. Detroit baseball. We went to the game on Saturday with about 25 people – family and friends – and our seats were bomb. Lower level, which I never buy for myself because they are $$$ and I expected to be sitting in the nosebleeds since we had so many people, so it was a nice surprise when our tickets were lower level. Here’s my cousin Nicole, who is awesome:

And here are some fancy hotdogs that Michelle took a picture of for me:

Mmm hmm. What’s more American than some hotdogs at a ballpark?

And as you can see from my first picture, there is a carousel at Comerica Park and it’s made up of Tigers and we rode it! I looooove carousels.

It went kind of fast! And as you can see, I’m wearing a Yankees t-shirt to the Tigers game. I was actually expecting at least one drunk guy to heckle me, but alas, I only got some weird looks! It’s a Granderson t-shirt, which is funny because the Yanks stole him from the Tigs.

We won, natch. Go Tigers! And we stayed after the game for some fancy fireworks:

Yay! Hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July!
