We're not fair people. I think I've gone to the fair twice in the last 15 years. Both of those times when Judah was old enough to want to go.
We weren't planning on going this year, but Judah saw a carnival on some show and had been wanting to go. When we drove by the fairgrounds and saw the ferris wheel he really wanted to go.
I'm a sucker for "experience" for the kids and Eric agreed, so Memorial Day we headed over there.
I think the reason why I don't like the fair is they seem so dirty to me. People sweaty and dirty. Carnies making your food and taking your money. People getting off rides and throwing up.
(Totally random traumatic experience. I was on that spinning ride -do you know which I mean? Kind of like the teacups, but in a half dome thing- with my step-grandpa Bill at a parking lot carnival. And, in the middle of the ride he starts throwing up. That was probably the worst experience of my life.)
Anyway, just gross and dirty. And, expensive at that. But, obviously, we went anyway.
The boys went on two rides. I told them they could ride the ponies, but preferred rather ride the merry go round. Because Samuel was a little below the line Eric had to ride with them. Silas and I just watched.
We looked at the animals, petted a few, and sanitized the hands. :) The baby animals were so cute.
We looked at the $4 corn dogs, but Eric wouldn't let me buy any, looked at the ice cream, but went home and ate the ice cream home. And, of course, took pictures in the photobooth. My personal favorite part!
We probably won't go back anytime soon, so I hope the boys enjoyed their experience!
