Things we learned at the county fair

Last week we went to the good old county fair. Just another reason Fall is my favorite time of year! And, while we were there we learned a few important lessons...

1. Just because you're tall enough to get on a ride doesn't mean you're ready.

Kai made up her mind that she absolutely positively could not go one more second of her life without being on the swinging pirate ship ride. After insisting on getting on it and paying her 3 tickets to the slightly scary carnival ride technician, she was seated on the ride between her Aunt Tee Tee and Uncle Jared. And, then, she determined that this very ride might just be the end of her. And proceeded to scream bloody murder the entire time. This picture is taken just minutes after she got off the ride (and I promise her daddy was comforting her thus making it less despicable that I snapped a picture of her in her traumatic state).

2. Kiddie rides are perfect Unlike the aforementioned grown-up rides.

After the disaster described above, we managed to talk Kai into riding on one of the kid rides and she was much happier. In fact, both of the girls loved them and managed to charm the ride operator into a free ride!

3. If you are pregnant and eat a giant turkey leg, corn dog, french fries, diet coke, funnel cake and fresh squeezed lemonade, you will throw up the next morning. Guaranteed.

Umm...enough said.

I love the county fair we go every year! As for the food I love the fact that you had to eat everything at the fair, I do the same! I'm really sorry but I had to laugh at the throwing up part!

My almost three-year-old went on her first kiddie ride by herself last weekend... I fully expected for her to be exactly like your first picture by the end of it. But she was so proud and had so much fun!
I can't believe Kai was brave enough to even try the pirate ship!!
