I have never been to a State Fair until I moved to California years ago. I have seen them on tv back home but we don't have those in Montreal. We have traveling carnivals but that's it. I have been to the Fair twice since I've been here and they're ok. I guess they are more fun when you have kids but that's just me.
The day was perfect since it was only going to be in the low 90's. lol Yeah, that's a great day for most people here since the weeks prior it was over 100's degrees. The kids did the rides, ate junk food that are no-no's, saw animals, a puppet show with some baaad acting and some exhibitions.My son couldn't ride the boat but my daughter wanted to try it. Man, I wasn't sure how she would react riding it alone. She did great but I love her face on the next photo. lol
Holding on to dear life since it was going up really high and fast. Child doesn't even weigh 45lbs so she was probably moving in her seat. lol
My son kept laughing through out the ride! lol I have never met such a giggly and loving personality as his.
Showing off to us. Spinning fast and high?? Pfft! Easy peasy man!
Here she is acting like it was no biggie going alone. Smarty pants!
Once it started, she got thrown to the people next to her. lol Lightweight child. Now I know how my mom felt when I was her age. Now I'm trying to fatten her up! lol
We spent 5 1/2 hours walking and I, of course, walked in heels. What can I say?! That's moi baby! I also had my first funnel cake. It was okay. The kids were too impressed with it too. lol See what happens when you make your own treats or buy pastries at bakeries??? They become sweet snobs. lol Well except for cotton candy. They LOVE candy!
The kids loved looking at the cows, bulls and goats. I didn't tell them what would happen to them or I might of gotten some tears. Here's one that was enjoying a nice rest and a fan just for her. She had her eyes closed the whole times while chewing.
This one was getting all groomed up.
My daughter wanted to milk a goat but my son did not. He was content just to watch.
Eventhough it wasn't too hot,the heat was starting to get to us. Good thing for those mister fans. We enjoyed many stops to them and get misted. Ahhh!
The kids were passed out on our way home but I know they had a lot of fun. That's what summer should be for kids; having fun and eating fun treats! Making lasting memories for them so they can look back and say we had it good.
Has the Fair stopped at your hometown or will soon? Any favorite rides or food? Convince me that the Fair isn't just for kids.
