We’ve had another busy weekend trying to pack everything into the last sliver of summer. The Brainiac has been living quite happily at the county fair mucking out the stalls and sweeping hay. This weekend we decided to hit the fair ourselves. We saw all the animals, exhibits, random craft projects, a belly dancing troupe, and then hit the midway. Super Sam proved to be the family ride lover. Danny…not a fan…but the girls were happy to take his tickets from him
I took a thousand Instagram photos so I’ll just share our afternoon via pictures.
Every kid needs to see the fair. And eat an over-priced ice cream parfait. It’s a summer essential.
One funny memory from Super Sam. He loved the little metal cars that are all connected to each other and spin round and round. EVERY.TIME.HE.PASSED.US he yelled out “Look…I picked the FASTEST car! I’m WINNING!!” He was so dead serious too. Cause no matter how fast he went…all those other cars were behind him
I was a little disappointed that the ferris wheel didn’t have “old-timey” baskets. That would have made for cuter Instagram photos. But you can’t win them all. This is Lancaster County after all.
Miss Middle to the rescue to pamper the scared toddler. Then she gladly stole the rest of his tickets so she could ride the boats
I didn’t eat any funnel cake for fear of spending the entire night in the ER but I sniffed real hard as we walked by. That counts for something.
All in all it was a near perfect day. We also squeezed in TWO sleep overs, a trip to the park, church, a birthday party, Sam’s preschool open house, and a few errands. We are trying so hard to spend every last bit of intentional family time together that we can before this last little bit of summer passes us by. One week. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’m just a little excited
