The Fair…

After Community Helper day, we picked up C from school and headed to the Fair.  The boys look forward to it every year.  My parents met us there for an afternoon of fun.  Paul and Anna stopped in for lunch as well.

It is so nice that the boys are both tall enough to ride most of the kiddie rides without an adult…it certainly allows us to stay at the fair longer!!  Ha!

I did end up having to ride one “roller coaster” because Grayson wanted to go while Caden was on something else with Honey and Papa…UGH!!!  Rides just aren’t as fun as they used to be…especially those which are constructed in a day or two.

It was rather sunny out, so Caden took Papa’s hat from him.  Smile

Here come Caden down the giant slide…

Thank GOODNESS my wonderful husband agreed to go down the slide with Grayson!!

We went to the petting zoo right after this, but I forgot to take pics.  Oops!

I think that this ride was the “nail in the coffin” for Grayson.  He ended up being sick that night, and I think that this ride had a LOT to do with it.  I think he takes after his daddy and Papa in that he doesn’t do too well on rides that spin in circles.  Oh well!

A final ride on the elephants, and we were done with riding.

Grayson did sweet talk his way into an airbrushed T-shirt with Thomas the train…oh yes we did!  Of course, we let Caden get one too, and he chose an Angry Birds one.  It was a day filled with lots of fun!!
