At the Fair

This afternoon, after the kids woke from their naps, we headed to the county fair. It was the perfect weather – sunny and just slightly warm. My parents never took me to fairs as a kid, but I do remember a carnival that came to town every once in a great while. I remember how thrilling it was to see the rides, hear the music and excitement all around. And the food! I love fair food – funnel cakes, cotton candy, caramel apples… I love it all.

Things have not changed much since I was a kid. I saw they still had the classics like a ferris wheel, a carousel, Tilt-a-whirl and the Scrambler, among the newer thrills. And now that I have kids of my own, I feel like I have an added excuse to go on rides and have a good time. It was sweet how often Chloe wanted to hold my hand, and I was pleasantly surprised at how brave she was. In just a couple years Leo will be old enough to join her. I imagine it only gets better.


Fun in the Park

Chloe had an exciting time at Fun in the Park with her friend Lorenzo this weekend. Along with playing in the water fountain, she got her very first taste of the “fair” experience – including her first carnival-style ride, playing a “fishing” game (and getting to choose a ball “prize”), jumping in an inflatable bouncer, and her very first taste of cotton candy. I’m sure if it wasn’t for naptime she would never have wanted to leave. Just wait Chloe, there are many more fun experiences like this out there for you, and I’ll be happy to introduce you to them all. 🙂
