Fair Day!

Yesterday was such an amazing day at our state fair!  Chloe's cheer group was scheduled to perform at the fair during the evening, so Tony had the brilliant idea for us to both take the day off work, pull Chloe out of school at noon, and spend all day at the fair before it was cheer time.

The weather was supposed to be in the low 60's with showers, but it turned out to be a gorgeous day!  


I love this picture of Tony and Chloe on the Scrambler (my favorite ride as a kid!) because the ride actually wasn't moving anymore! Since I couldn't get a good shot while it was still in motion, Chloe re-enacted her excitement for me.  Gotta love faux action shots!


We rode a ton of rides, and once we were sufficiently dizzy, we took a break to check out the animals.  Being a vegetarian, I always feel a little sad seeing all the animals caged up at the fair, but they are just so stinkin' cute, I love looking at them!

Especially this guy!  Trust me, you need sound for this one.


The alpacas were super cute too.  Check out his teeth!


My favorite were these bunnies, especially the super fluffy one!  I wanted to take him home with me.



Just hangin' out with Mother Goose!


Next we got Chloe all ready for her performance.  She is so cute in her outfit!!  I love it.



I highly recommend taking the day off work when your fair comes to town!  It's so much better then fighting with the crowds on the weekends.  Oh, and I also recommend that you consume as much cotton candy as humanly possible!

xo,
Rachael

  2. We went last Saturday, and oh my gosh it was SO packed. I told John that next year we are going to take a day off and go during the week when it is, hopefully, less busy. Love the fun pictures! Glad you guys had such a great time!

    1. I'm so glad I didn't have to deal with that!! The wooden roller coaster did have a pretty long line but that was the only thing. Now I'm wishing I would have gone to Enchanted Village this summer, I love that place!

  5. Don't you just love the Alpacas?!? They remind me of a Dr. Seuss character. There are several down the street from us and I laugh every time I drive by them.
