We finally made it to the county fair this summer! It's been on our summer list for a few years, and the fairgrounds are only 5 minutes from our house, but we somehow have never managed to make it there, until this year. Unfortunately, we went on the last day so all the animals and livestock had already packed up and left, but the rides were still up. And a perk to waiting until the last day is that ride tickets were discounted.
Dallin looks a little scared in this picture, but I promise he did have fun. And yes, I did go on several of the rides even with my pregnant belly. None of the ride restraints but any kind of pressure on my belly, and I only went on rides the kids could go on too, so none of them were unsafe for me and baby.
Waiting in line for the next ride.
Connor was just barely tall enough for most of the rides (with an adult).
Several times when we measured him, he stood on his toes to look taller. Smart boy...
This was the only ride the boys were tall enough to go on by themselves. It was a very simple ride, but they enjoyed it. Mostly, I think they liked feeling grown up.
Next we went on the Ferris wheel together and got a good view of the whole fair.
Paying $8 for a junk food carnival dinner didn't sound that great, so we walked across the street to the Wendy's and got dinner from the value menu. Much tastier! Connor took forever to finish his burger, so we let him carry it to finish eating as we walked back to the fair.
He carried it around with him the whole time, taking little bites here are there. It was really entertaining to watch, though I'm not sure why.
We all had a lot of fun that night. And we made it back to our car and home right before a huge rain storm hit. Perfect timing!
