We spent Friday at the 4H Fair. We had a BLAST!!!!! I have a TON of pictures to share. (you know I mean a TON too!)
I just love them all!
We took the kids to McDonalds for Brunch before the fair. We just parked and ate in the car and I couldn’t help but catch a pic of the kids sitting so sweetly sharing the fries in the back seat. So cute!
When we got to the fair the first thing we saw was the exotic animals. The kids liked the elephant! Then we headed to the Barn of Life where all the babies are born and hang out.
Tess loved the baby goats. I did too! They were so small and so cute. (I still think Tess is cuter!)
Then we rode on the Ferris Wheel.
Which is where I decided that I NEED a new camera so I can use my 50mm as a true 50mm. I could barely get the kids in the frame! Even holding the camera out as far as I could. Not good! LOL
It was kids day on Friday so they were able to ride as much as they wanted till 1pm (for a really low price!) So they hit them ALL!!!!!
Oh…. Hands always have to be up over your head on a rollercoaster! Duh!
They liked the Fun House and especially the really long Fun House slide!!!!
I went through the Glass House with them. Thank goodness or they would have both had giant goose-eggs on the heads the way they tried to run through it. LOL Upstairs were some fun mirrors that the kids got a kick out of.
Totally loved seeing Jake take Tess’ hand and lead her to the next line. I was even more impressed when they stood there the ENTIRE time holding hands till it was their turn to go on!!! Maybe they do like each other! LOL
They liked the Dragon Rollercoaster too! Jake made sure to teach Tess the “hand up” rule!
Neither one of them cared that I wanted some nice pictures of them on the Carousel. Little buggers!!!
These crack me up! And he makes that face sometimes when he rides his real 4-Wheeler too!VROOOoooooom!
Then Tess and Nana hung out while Jake and I rode the Himalaya! (nothing like a little nausea and whiplash!)
And then the bumper cars! We all loved them!
A little WaCkY WoRm RiDe!
And a little fresh squeezed lemonade! YUM! (BTW- I LOVE the pic of Tess on the right!!!!)
Then we took a snack break. My mom and I were determined to find the Ultimate Chips that we had a few years back with Mike’s mom and dad. We found them and they were just as good as we remembered! The kids just wanted ice cream!
After our snack we decided to feed the animals. We got some carrot slices which the animals really like!
I felt bad for some of the animals. Tess was a little unsure about getting too close so they had a REALLY hard time getting some of her carrots. That little guy on the right almost choked himself to get that treat!
My favorite was the baby camel! He was soooooooooo cute! No really he was that cute! LOL Jake got to feed him some carrots too!
Then we caught the Motorcycle Daredevil show. It was really cool and the kids enjoyed it a lot. They sat and cheered the entire time. There are three motorcycles in the sphere here. It was pretty amazing.
Then we watched the Racing Pigs. Tess’s pig won a race and she got to go up and get a blue ribbon and a checkered flag. The pot belly pigs were too funny though. They barely made it around the track. LOL
After that we were exhausted and ready for a nap.
So much fun and worth every penny! I highly recommend going next year!
