Do you hear that noise??? Nope neither do I, it is still, it is quiet….Both boys are in school right now and I am FINALLY taking some time to get caught up here! So here goes.
Growing up I have memories of going to the fair in my hometown every year. I was also part of a dance team that performed at the fair, so most of the pictures are of me and friends in our dance costumes, eating cotton candy and riding on the rides. We’ve gone to the fair several times over the years and it is getting more and more fun as the boys get older. This year our window of time to go was pretty limited, since the boys had 2 weeks of Vacation Bible School, then we were leaving for Oregon and the fair would be over by the time we got back. Unless we went on a weekend, which I can’t stand doing those kind of things during “peak” times. So on a Friday, Justin was able to leave work early, and I ran to Costco to get the fair package tickets before picking up the boys from Vacation Bible School and we met at home and drove to the fair.
We wandered through the exhibits, the theme this year was “How Sweet It Is”. It was all about how candy is made. We visited the cows, goats, sheep, llamas, chickens and other farm animals. And of course we spent lots of time in the Family Fun Zone where the boys (and mom and dad) enjoyed the rides.
Dylan’s favorite by far was the bumper cars. Not sure if it was because he had control of the car or because this was the one time that it actually OK or encouraged that he keep “bumping” into his brother.
And Jacob’s favorite was the Bungee Jump.
Of course when he was done, Dylan wanted a turn.
Ontop of the sweets, we also ate fried food.
And on our way out we stopped in the arena to watch the monster trucks race around. When the show was finished, one of the trucks was giving rides. So daddy and Jacob hoped on the Monster Truck, which became Jacob’s other favorite thing about the fair.
It was a fun impromptu family date and I am so glad we made it work!
