Today we took advantage of Jack being out of school and headed to the state fair! It was kind of a perfect day to go- not too crowded, not too hot. Ok, it was a little hot. But we had fun! We made the mistake of parking behind the Midway, so we immediately had to pass all of the fun rides ($$) and games ($$$) to get where we were going. Of course Jack wanted to do everyyyyyyything, but we managed to find a ride that he and little sis could ride together:
Then onto the petting zoo. This is always my favorite part of the fair. Isla was a little dubious about the goats (aggressive!) but Jack loved it.
Next the dog show… there’s a 3-legged pit bull who jumps into a pool to catch a frisbee. I’d completely forgotten about that until we got in the car to head to the fair and Jack goes, “I wish that dog had 4 legs.”
I’m like, “What the heck are you talking about, buddy??” And then I realized that he remembered that from an entire YEAR ago. Holy geez that kid doesn’t forget anything. And yes, the 3-legged dog is still performing:
Oh man. Isla’s hair. The struggle is real, people.
But most importantly: the food. We had to hunt down our usual cold root beer, then Jack’s fries (with salt & vinegar!), then Fletcher’s for corn dogs. Aaaaand finally cotton candy for the kids and a Dole Whip for me. Brian may have snagged a fried Snickers on the way out:
Ugh. Good thing the fair is only once a year… but TOTALLY WORTH IT.
