Fair Fun

After our visit to the County Fair last night, Luke declared, "It's a good thing Megan danced there last year."  He was referring to the fact that had Megan's dance company not danced there last year, we would likely never have thought to go.

And what a travesty that would have been...

And though we would never have thought it five or six years ago, we have found the County Fair to be quite up our alley...
Megan, Luke and Joshua showing their skills on the 'Kinkanikan Bull'...

Joshua's declaration before bed was, "I wiked widing the horses and seeing the sheeps the best."
I could write a whole essay about the face painting episode, but suffice it to say, it was a dreaded wait in line for almost thirty minutes to get a much desired face painting only to come home an hour later and sleep it all off...
Company booths offering all sorts of chances to win anything from cotton candy to bracelets to suckers to frisbees...
(And we didn't even have to listen to a free insurance quote-they just let the kids throw bean bags in the hole for this prize.)
And even though I said the fair is 'right up our alley', I still made Drew fight and scream until a older sibling was available to take him into the petting zoo.  (It's not up my alley quite so much...)
I heard Mike sum the evening up in a phone call as we were leaving,
"It' was the best $2 I've spent in a long time."
Until next year, County Fair...
