A Day at the State Fair!


When we were in China Hubby and I talked about how we were going to have to modify our life. We felt the girls would not be ready to do very much. At that point leaving our home with them seemed very scary!
But now the girls have been with us for 9 weeks - there is such a huge difference. They can pretty much go anywhere with us! Even the State Fair!!


When we first got there the crowd wasn't too bad. It picked up in the afternoon- the streets were packed with people. I am glad we had plenty of time to enjoy it in the morning!


The girls loved it! Even the most simple activity was fun for them! It helped having them all in pink- no problem finding who belonged to us in the crowd!


They had lots of firsts while we were there! Eating cheeses curds, pronto pups, mini donuts, 1919 root beer, etc


Emma even did the pedaling motion on this little tractor!!


Then they planted in the garden!


Watered their plants!


Sheered the sheep!


Milked the cow!


Did an art project!


Took a rest while wearing a crown!


First time on a ferris wheel! Dad wasn't going to go with them but thank goodness he did! They all stood up, to wave at me!


It was a big ferris wheel- kinda, sorta!


Then they rode motorcycles! We had many shouts of glee and very loud giggles!


The rides where a big hit!

Time for the carousel! I had to be there for Anna! (she is a chicken!)


Lots of walking around and tons of smiles!


Nothing like an airplane ride to make the day!!


Sarah is up there somewhere in pink! We did not have the other girls do this ride- for their own safety. they felt completely jipped out...


We visited the animals- baby goats!


Many many horses including this very large one!


And these itty bitty guys!


It was such a great day!!

Great pictures, looks like you all had a great time.
You know, I actually thought about you guys when we were there and wondered if you would brave the fair with all 4 of your girls. You did it! I think that's great. :)

We have not taken Jadyn to that Little Farm Hands area before. I think we'll have to try that next time.

Glad you guys had a great time.

SO much fun!
The county fair is at the end of our little road. The kiddos entered their critters and Buster is happily doing Barn Duty as we "speak".

Oh such fun! We have fond memories of that state fair! We went for several years before kids, so that was a loooong time ago!
