Fun at the Fair

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Last weekend was a no-go for the fair due to loads and loads of rain, so instead we gave it another go this Saturday...we watched the radar like crazy people, and decided to make the best of the forecast and go anyways. And then of course, the weather was great and it never rained...sometimes I wonder if meterologists just make educated guesses like the rest of us.
We met Mimi and Pappy at the Williamson County Fair right afternoon naptime for the girls so they would both be in prime time fun mode...or so we hoped. We started off the day touring the inside events, and walked through the exhibits to see the ribbon winners for photography, paintings, quilting, and all the yummy farming and food winners, too. 
 My little diva...sunglasses and all
 Isn't Carson looking so big?? I cannot believe she is already 8 weeks old
 Family picture!! I feel like we never have one of all four of us
Best grandparents ever
 Cupcake time
Then we decided it was time for another "snack" and so each of us started off with corndogs...yes, calories don't count when we visit the fair and yes, we eat SO much food! Off to the midway for games and rides...
 Jeff and Mimi in a water shoot-out challenge...
 Mimi came out on top and won Caroline her very first fair prize...a dragon!! 
 Carson felt like she won, too because she got to have the fan blowing her a cool breeze all day ;)
Popcorn time for Tuttie
I was SO excited to let Caroline have a turn on some of the rides while we were there...of course she barely made the height requirement, but seeing as how she did so good at riding the carousel a few weeks ago at the zoo, we decided to give it a go. Needless to say, she LOVED it!! Nemo was up first and then we took her to the boats...honestly, this was the best part of the day. 
There is that snarl face!!! She was so happy 
Before heading home, we made another run at the food vendors and had fried pickles, cheesesteak sandwiches, and the world's best banana ice was all about the food OBVIOUSLY. A wonderful Saturday spent doing the stuff we love the most ;)
 Until next year...P.S. sorry if I made y'all hungry
