Ok, so we missed the majority of the carnies! because we went early on a Saturday morning, but..

we went to the fair!!

  We hadn't really planned on it, Gil and I like to pretend our kids are too little to enjoy things that will just cost us a lot of money, but we went and it was fun.  Going on Saturday morning was great.  All of the rides were 2 for 1 so we really saved a good bit.  Aunt Leslie also had some discount tickets so that made it even better.  And it wasn't crowded-the best part of all.  Ben loved the rides, of course, and we were surprised at how many Nate would ride.

We also saw some cows, bunnies, chickens, and ducks.  Next year I hope there is a night football game so we can stay longer!

This little car ride was so funny.  The cars whipped around the corners so fast, the boys cracked up every time!

The obligatory picture of fair food. We had an elephant ear and it was good!

Gil was here too-he was happy to be the official photographer of the day (since it kept him from having to ride the rides). He we are with Aunt Leslie.

The daredevils went on this little roller coaster-we even sat in the back-yep, living on the edge.

Look at that sweet little face on the lollipop swings.  The kid loves to "swing high" on our swingset, but I did not think he would like this, but he laughed the whole time.  Ben and Leslie were behind us on this one.

Big liked the bumper cars, or he said he did-it looked to me that he spent a great deal of time stuck in a corner! 

We all know that he is just biding his time until he is tall enough for the SCARY rides. When he is, he will have a willing partner in his mom. I just have to get out of my mind that the rides came down the highway on a flatbed a day or two ago-that is truly the scariest part of the fair (besides the people that come at night).
