Rinky round fun

When I was a kid we lived in Spokane and they have this amazing carousel that we rode on quite a bit as a kid. This past weekend we went downtown to a place where they are building a new carousel for Albany. It was so awesome, there is a history museum about how they were invented and then we got to go in every area where they are carving, painting and even the room with the actual mechanism for the carousel. I guess a guy said that if the organization could provide a storefront and have a museum he would give some old animals from his collection and donated the mechanism for the entire carousel. It was so cool to see the history and get to go during the building process. They expect it to open in about five years. I'm going to put the pictures in a slide show, I went a little picture crazy because it was so cool. They even provide carving classes on Thursday for people that want to help. I wish I could go I would love to do that oh well. Please visit
