I'm a few weeks behind on posting this, but we had a great time at the State Fair! We decided ahead of time to have Justin take the whole day off so we could enjoy it during the day and not fight the crowds.
We started off with Disney on Ice! The kids enjoyed it and I of course loved singing along and reminiscing my childhood favorites!
After Disney, we found some "healthy" fair food (nothing was fried) and went to find some fun rides for Haylie.
She went on her first rollercoaster. Thankfully Justin went with her and after she decided she liked it...although she was crying the whole time during.
This was the tricky part with Jace because he couldn't do any of the rides but wasn't about to be stuck in the stroller. He was a trooper though! He loved playing with the VIP gates!
We found lots of rides for H to do. She was scared of most of them and twice they stopped the ride because she was freaking out! She doesn't want to go fast or up high. I think we have a scaredy cat on our hands.
She got some face paint...and won a "Hello Kitty".
And Jace tried to hang in there even though by this time he was extremely tired. We found some balls to play with and he was happier for the moment.
At this point we had been at the Fair for quite some time. We were having a good time but knew we were pushing our limits...so we told H it was time to go and this happened:
They weren't tired AT ALL...
We were thankful to go during the day and get to enjoy less people than in past years. We also decided to skip the show and just do rides and maybe find the animals for next year. Too much to do in so little time!
