The Fair......



Ohhhh....the State Fair.  I said I would never, ever take my children there.  But somehow....here I am....at the fair.  I mainly went to make sure my dad didn't hype Charlie and Walker up on too much sugar, but it seems that they ended up with the good sugary stuff anyways. (I found out that the boys LOVE cotton candy.)  The horse ride was definitely the highlight of the day.  How cute are these little cowboys??  And how about this chicken??  At least I think it's a chicken (I kept calling animals by the wrong name, much to the amusement of my dad and the animal guys).  But I've decided that if I was a chicken, I'd be this one.

Have you been to your State Fair this year?
Today is the last day to enter for the monogrammed shirt of your choice.  Go here to enter.
Linking up with these three ladies.

I went to one of my state's county fairs back in August and it was so much fun! My favorite part is always the food (the animals are second!)

i've never been a fan of fairs - maybe it's because every summer i went there as a camp counselor and it was a nightmare. but i'm pretty sure when i have kids i'll go!

I was just in Dallas this weekend and it was the last weekend of the state fair. It's a HUGE production but I can't see much point in going without children as a lot of the activities are geared toward the younger set. Or the crowd that likes really unhealthy fried stuff. I like your pictures of the little cowboys. I think I can find almost an identical picture from when I was little

Carla said...

haha zoey mostly cried. She was terrified of the animals, terrified that people were getting hurt on the rides, didn't enjoy the crowds, didn't appreciate the pig races... who's gonna watch the demo derby's with me?

Megan said...

Those are the cutest cowboys of all time! The last picture is the cutest. My parents never took me to the fair so I've been going with Robert ever since we started dating. The fried oreos are the bestttt.

Love it!! I haven't been to a state fair in a long long long time, I used to go every year with my dad.

And actually, I've just been thinking about it and had a craving for fried dough...now that you've brought it up!

TheTinyHeart said...

Aww they look like they're having a blast! These photos are adorable. The state fair in Jersey isn't so great so I don't usually go.

Ashley K said...

Aww your kids are so cute! Watch out for that cotton candy it can sneak up on you when you least expect it with the hyper-est kids you've ever seen ;) I haven't been to a state fair in years but they are a good time for sure.

Tyne Swedish said...

Oh I am so glad you took your children to the fair. I have great memories from my childhood of the State Fair here in Indy! I wanted to pop over and thank you for your hilarious comment on my blog. I often find myself search for chocolate that my husband has eaten!
