It is Fair Time!
Every year, our town hosts a county fair with rides, contests, animal showings, games and exhibits. As a family we look at the newspaper -- find the events that we enjoy best and decide which day to attend. This year, we took some friends with us.
We went the last day so we were able to try all the rides we wanted for a lot cheaper.
I love our little county fair, it reminds me of the county fair in "Little House on the Prairie"
The fair brings this huge slide in every year and it's a favorite of ours. My little brother took a while to warm up to it, but he loves it now. He tried to go on his own a few times before actually pushing off the platform, but he does it by himself now.
We look really excited in this picture but that's because the ride hasn't started yet.
After the ride was over we both looked a bit sick.
Today we got to see the craft show, the tractor pull, the lama showing and the goat costume contest. We were going to stay for the round up, but it just got to hot and we got too tired.
Some of the rides are just a little too loud :)
This brother of mine just does not like the rides that spin or go in circles and unfortunately, there are a lot of those at the fair. He decided to save up his rides and do the bungee jump instead. He got harnessed in and did some crazy-high jumps on this fun trampoline thing.
He loved it!
He loved it!
Here we are. We found the largest wheel we could and got a picture with it. It was a grand day. Goodbye County-Fair-2011, we will catch you next year.
