County Fair

We all went to the county fair today and had a blast.  This was Allie's first fair and she could not be more excited.  She and I were looking at the fair website yesterday so that she knew what to expect and she saw photos of kids getting their face painted.  She immediately declared that she wanted a rainbow on one arm and a star on the other.  This morning when I walked into her bedroom, the first thing she said to me was "We're going to get the rainbow on lefty and the star on righty?"  Excitement was officially inspired.  The whole drive to the fair she kept repeating "Where are we going Mama?"  I'd say "I don't know Allie.  Where are we going?"  She'd shout: "THE FAIR!!!"

Once we got inside the fairgrounds, we walked through the animal houses.  Allie met goats, chickens, rabbits, cows, and pigs.

She then got a rainbow painted on her arm and found some tractors to play on.

We then scouted what rides we wanted to try.  Allie picked the carousel and a spinning dragon ride.

Jonathan and Andrew cheered us on and slept, respectively.  In fact, Andrew slept the entire time we were there so he didn't make it into any of the photos.  Here is a shot of him with his Daddy last night.
