Then feed the chickens corn and take an egg for their basket.
In the end, all that they collected in their basket, they turn in to sell for money. Then they take their money and get to buy a snack. They do this every year and it never gets old. The kids just love it. I like that it teaches them something good.
Now, off to the Midway to the rides! Here Lito is a great sport and rode with Sammi....who had more fun? It's a toss-up.
There were WAY too many rides that my little man (literally!) couldn't ride. :( Lots of tears, but he finally found a ride he was tall enough to ride alone that he liked.
And here is the ride...he kept saying "I want the boat", so the boat is what he got.
Here, the kids were watching and listening to a buzzard in a tree talk. This buzzard was like the Wizard of Oz. I kept looking for a man behind a curtain that talked for the buzzard. He was a very sarcastic buzzard that made the adults laugh and the kids go "huh?" It was funny.
Us taking a brief break. Our legs and feet were so sore from walking so much, but it is worth it since you have to work off all of the calories from the fried carbs we ingested. But they were oh so good! Isn't that really why we come to the fair? For the food? Speaking of, the winner this year was Chicken Fried Bacon. I kid you not. Fried bacon. The line for it was so long. There was also fried Jelly Belly's. I have no idea how you fry a jelly bean. Fried grilled cheese actually sounded good, but I did not try it. I stuck to my beloved Fletcher's corny dog. Yum!
My tired kids riding in the back of the stroller together....see his bare feet? Yea, he kicked off his shoes, which Lito saw him do. Later on I heard Josh in the front call for me. I go to him and he says "I don't like my socks" and I look down to find his bare feet. He had one sock in his hand and we could not find the other one. Somewhere in the fair a sock was swept up and thrown away.
So for you very observant ones, did you notice anything different from the first set of pictures to the last set? That's right, Joshua's shorts changed. The well prepared mom that I am (ha, I lucked out this time!) brought and extra pair of shorts for him. He is very famous for peeing out of his diaper and getting his pants wet. I think this kid holds it all in for a long time, then lets it all out and the diaper just cannot hold that much.
We were there for several hours and it hurt for my legs to bend to get in the car. Am I that out of shape? Sheesh! But both the adults and kids had fun and that was the goal!
