this past weekend we took the girls to our local fair
cotton candy, deep fried oreo cookies, whales tails, rides, games
and just good ol' fashion fun!
we have been going every summer since zoe was a year old!
so, it's become a little family tradition
when i asked hubs about what day we should go
he actually said to me
"oh, are we still going? but we just took the girls to disneyland
a few months ago..."
you cannot compare disneyland to the fair!
it's like comparing apples to oranges
the first thing i do every year is take photos of
both girls in front of the "how tall are you?" measuring stick
it's amazing (and a little sad) too see how much
they have grown from the previous year
and then the girls have a blast riding all the fair rides
i love this photo... they were holding hands while waiting in line
and of course you can't go to the fair without eating
we had our usual fair eats
mini donuts, ice cream, cotton candy, fresh squeezed lemonade
this year we strayed from tradition and went later on in the day
we have never stayed late into the evening before
but this year, i wanted the girls to see all the games and rides lit up
you can't tell from this photo (or maybe you can)
but i am scared to death
i am deathly afraid of heights
the girls (especially zoe) won't leave the fair
until they have taken a spin on the ferris wheel
this year i decided to try and conquer my fear and join them
i wasn't even able to enjoy the spectacular view because
i refused to look down
(all photos were obviously taken by my hubs)
to make matters worst
my hubs, zoe and pia were making fun of me!
to end off the day, we told the girls they could play one game
i don't know if they realize it
but they always choose the duck game
it was another fun filled trip to the fair
the girls conked out the moment their heads hit their carseats
like the ad for the fair says:
