Carnival Nanny | Favorite Photos From My Summer

Friends,

Today’s post is a nice refreshing post different from all this mission stuff. I often get asked about my summer job so I thought I’d share some photos to help answer a few questions. I worked as a nanny to a family who operated a traveling carnival. Yes, that makes me a Carny. It was the best experience of my life! I loved the family, the workers, the food, the rides, the traveling, and the fact that I can say I traveled with a carnival. So let’s have at it, let me show you some of my favorite photos from my summer.

I know that’s probably a billion more photos than you wanted to scroll through, but I just love reliving my joyous carnival summer. Especially all the treats I ate; seriously my motto was “a caramel apple a day keeps the home sickness away”. It worked like a charm! Do you think that motto could be applied on my mission? Hahaha, just kidding, 18 months of carnival food and I wouldn’t even fit back in the country.

If you have any questions about my carnival nanny summer life, comment! I’d also love to hear about your summer. I can’t wait to spend my next 2 summers in Deutschland!

Peace out girl scout-

Lady Lena
