I love the County Fair! I've told you before about entering stuff in the fair as a kid, and maybe that's why, but even though life is pretty busy, we try to always make time to visit the fair. It's free except for parking and we always come away with lots of freebies.
We got there tonight about 7:45 since we had to wait for Taco and Sport to finish with football practice. We piled everyone into the big van so we wouldn't have to pay to park two vehicles. As I pulled Baby Doll from her car seat, I realized we were missing shoes. She only had one little flip-flop with her. Thank goodness we had the stroller.
We headed straight for the information desk to cash in our free reading tickets. (Yeah, even the fair gives something away for summer reading!) Crafty, Sport, Scout, Curly, Taco, and Burrito were each given 3 ride tickets for the carnival, coupons, and ribbons.
My sweetie bought Baby Doll a cheap pair of flip-flops to get her though until we got back home. The boys loved the karate booth where they got to kick and punch. We got pencils, chapstick, bags, and lots of candy. At 9:00 we made our way back to the craft booth and the kids made clothespin horses. Curly and Baby Doll were so proud of theirs!
It was 10:30 before we finally got back to the van and drove our sleepy children home. I can hardly wait to go back next year, I'll probably need more pencils by then.
