We went, we ate, we made it all out alive.
The heat and my family DO NOT mix well. Why can’t the fair be in November?
We made it to the fair right at 10am and wanted to get to all the outdoor attractions while it was still in the 80s. The first thing we hit up, a ride for Danny and Brooklyn.
After that, we let the first round of eating begin. Last year I had a falafel that was ok and had planned on going back. Thankfully the Gourmet Genie food truck was here this year, and I scored with the BEST falafel wrap I’ve ever had. Seriously, so good!
Once everyone had some food in their bellies, we headed out towards the animals.
It’s weird the things the girls remember. Every time we came upon a bale of hay they thought they had found the hay maze. Thankfully the fair decided to have it again this year.
Another pair of cuddlers.
On to the bunnies, my favorite!
We decided to check out the bee exhibit this year, a first for me.
Our last animal exhibit was a Zorse and a Zonkey. This will most likely be what Jeff & my kids would look like…
By now the girls were having MAJOR meltdowns and it was HOT! We headed into to the exhibit halls for the AC but only made the girls more cranky and “bored” (ugh, their new word). We decided to mix in some games and rides in between the halls. The girls decided to do a fun house.
Brooklyn made it up the rope ladder faster than her sister so when Kalea made it to the enclosed slide she was all alone. And she freaked out. Literally stayed on the platform for minutes while other kids climbed over her to go down the slide. We were shouting encouragement at her from below, while the ride attendant was doing it from as far in as he could fit.
Thankfully as the seventh or eighth kid climbed over her, she must have made up her mind and finally went down the slide.
And then out, happy as a clam asking to do it again.
We told her no. But after a couple more halls, let the girls out to go on another ride.
And then another.
By now we were sweaty, tired and ready to go. We grabbed some fried Oreos and fried pickles, the pickles being my favorite.
And then headed out.
It was a fun time, but I think next year we’ll wait until the sun starts to set. Thanks for everything Dad!
