The County Fair

We've had a great weekend. It started as we met some friends at a county fair on Friday night. People around here apparently take their county fairs pretty seriously. It was the nicest fair I've been to in... maybe ever. Of course, I come from a place where the carnies once kidnapped our dog - so I may not have a concept of what a real county fair is supposed to be like.

The kids loved it and even though we spent so much money that we may not be able to pay our mortgage this month. I think it was well worth it.

Little Bitty wasn't tall enough to go on some rides, so we cheered Brother on.

Brother and his friend cruise for some county fair babes.

Little Bitty was tall enough for this - and suddenly became timid and needed her Mommy to ride with her. I let her drive.
Brother and his friend on another ride. Remind me not to let Brother ride around with this kid when they're about 16. ;)
Little Bitty feeding a goat at the petting zoo. She LOVES animals. I really wish we could get her a dog. Or an alpaca.
Brother got braver as the night went on and actually took a solo flight on the dragons.
Brother and Little Bitty both got to ride the ponies. We didn't get a good picture of Little Bitty - but they both enjoyed it so much! And Mommy got a special treat from "Andy" (that was Little Bitty's pony) when he peed on her foot. Really though - I think that was some of the cleaner stuff I came in contact with at the fair. One last stop at the roller coaster so that Brother could prove to himself that he could do it. He had refused at the beginning of the night - but after his ride on "Shadow" (see above) he was ready for anything!

Tomorrow is the first day of school for the new year. Brother is moving up to Pre-K III and Little Bitty will be a 2A'er. I pray they both have great years and I can't wait to share stories and pictures from this next stage. ;)
