NC State Fair

We had a great time at the fair this year. We were glad that Grandma Debbie was in town to enjoy it with us. The kids had a great time. Their favorite parts were "everything!" but especially riding the ponies and the mummy ride (the giant swinging pirate ship). Parker wasn't so sure about it the first time but we rode it twice and he loved it the second time. Dare devil Meadow had her hands in the air the whole time.

Parker won a prize at the dart throw (a tiger he named chinchitzu sp? lol)and he had a lot of fun looking at the lego building entries. We are totally going to participate in that next year! Sweet Meadow shared her pink piggy prize with Liam that she fished up in the shark fishing game.

We of course had to stop in the village of yester-year for apple cider freezies and what is the fair without chocolate covered cheesecake on a stick I ask you? Liam loved all of the lights and sounds and riding the ferris wheel together as a family was great. It was dusk so the lights were perfect. A great end to a great day!

Parker and Meadow in front of the ferris wheel=perfection! I would blow it up and hang it on my wall, but that would be weird because those aren't my kids. We so miss the fair this time of year.
