Last week, we headed to our local county fair for a night of fun. Harper and Will received free gate passes from their summer reading program (sidenote: we got some nice prizes from our local libraries-free passes to a bounce house, free books, fair tickets, coupons for free fro yo, and Harper won one of the end of summer raffles, which was a $10 gift certificate to a local Mexican restaurant that we all love!). Anyway, this was our first time going to our county fair. I grew up going to the State Fair of West Virginia (in my hometown), so our county fair was quite small. However, we got to pet some animals, look at fun exhibits, and check out the fun rides (though we didn’t ride any).
Milking cows…you’d think that my kiddos would be tired of seeing cows since we live right beside a dairy farm, but no, they love cows!
Last weekend, we headed to the WV State Fair for one last hurrah before I had to go back to work.
Although it was very cloudy, it didn’t rain at all. It was actually nice weather-not too hot. Will LOVED the rides! We only bought a few tickets because they were pricy and we weren’t sure how much the kids would ride. Well, next year we will be buying the ride bracelets which lets the kiddos have unlimited access to the rides!I rode the carousel with Will and Harper. Daddy and Harper on the Teacup ride!Silly pic!
Eating some yummy Ben Ellen Donuts (a fair favorite-they taste like nutmeg!).While watching Galaxy Girl spin around and climb the tower…yikes!Checking out all the animals.They even have a cow birthing center set up! Two calves were born that morning and there were about a dozen cows who were about to give birth! Petting the horses. Will and Harper absolutely love horses! They talk about visiting the horses in the horse barn at Nana’s all the time. Trying their hand at weaving. We also enjoyed some delicious German chocolate ice cream-yum! The kiddos had a blast and we can’t wait to go back next summer!
