It has been 4 years since we ventured to the NC State Fair. I was pushing our gigantic double jogging stroller and the kids could hardly ride any of the rides. Here we are at the giant pumpkins:
We finally went back today, and had a fantastic time. I tried to recreate the above photo.
Wow, the kids have grown! It was so much easier to take them to the fair now that they are a few years older. Just a word of encouragement to those with toddlers: it gets easier!
We all got to do our favorite things: Jason and I got to see some of the animals and eat some different foods (I had cheese fries and fried pickle chips), Jason wasted $1,000,000 dollars on impossible-to-win games, and the kids rode every ride they could fit on, some more than once.
We did find that Charlie was too big for some of the littlest rides.
And Maddie was too little for some of the bigger rides, which posed a little problem for Miss Thang.
Jason and I rode just a few rides with the kids.
But for the most part just enjoyed our time together.
We had a great day, and maybe even got our Christmas card picture. But you’ll have to wait until December to see that.
