Let's go to the Fair!




Yesterday was the kickoff for the Yamhill County Fair and we decided to go and join the fun. First off was the rides of course. I let the kids choose one ride each, oh the difficulty! I can't tell you how many times we walked down the ride alley, sounds blaring and lights flashing, thinking, and weighing options. Finally, Kyla choose the swings and Gav the airplanes. Kyla ended up getting to ride with Gavin due to the kindness of a worker. I often get surprised as a kindness is given.

We checked out the farm animals and Gavin was quite entertained by a fancy headed chicken.

An entire elephant ear was consumed. Oh the sugary goodness:)

Then off to the arena to watch an English riding horse competition.

Gav's favorite horse was the, and I quote, "polka dotted behind one." Yep, that's my boy!

Enjoying a rest in the was pretty warm.

We tried to figure out the sheep judging...not much luck:)

The sugar rush has faded, the thrill of the ride is only a memory, and the smell of animals no longer lingers. Ah, what a great day at the fair!
