All’s Fair

We took the girls to the county fair last night. When they were finally ready, I realized they’d blend right in with the carney folk.

It probably goes without saying, but Ava dressed herself.

Once we talked Olivia into leaving her two blankets, three lovies and teddy bear in the car, we made our way to the petting barn.

This nice cow really enjoyed the feeding, and he left Ava a little something in return. Thank goodness for anti-bac.

When the kids saw the midway, they were pretty much done with the farm animals. It was at this point that Bryan decided the rides didn’t look safe, and suggested perhaps we skip this part of the fair.

Sixty minutes later, we’d spent roughly $648 dollars on tickets and thoroughly enjoyed the ferris wheel that Bryan was sure would end up rolling down the countryside with his family inside. (That’s assuming, of course, that we hadn’t already fallen out of the “really low gates.”)

I wish I had video of my sweet husband yelling, “AVA! HOLD ON!”

Olivia was barely tall enough for most of the rides, but we found a few just for the little ones.

If the tears on the way back to the car were any indication, I think the girls were sad to leave. Bryan says the midway is open until midnight tonight…
