Night at the Fair

We had an amazing time at the fair last night! First we met up my mom and dad at their house. We had wanted to go together to the fair last year, but we got rained out. So, this year, we had our fingers crossed that the rain would hold off, and it did. The first thing we did when we got there was go to the Midway. Last year, the only ride Charla did was the merry-go-round. She really enjoyed that ride but, since she was only 14 months old, there weren’t many more options for her. This year though, she dove right in!

We started her off on the merry-go-round and once again she loved it. After that I took her on the teacup ride. When it first started I was worried that the G-force would be too much for her. Nope, not at all. In fact, she told me to let go of the rotating wheel because she wanted to turn it! I was trying to hold us in place so we just went around the big circle but didn’t spin. Once Charla got a hold of it though, we were spinning quite quickly!

Next was a train ride. This ride was pretty tame. It was just a small train that went around and around the track. The best part about this ride for Charla was waving at her Papa’s and Daddy as we went by. There was also a bridge type thing that we went under which she enjoyed.

The last ride we took her on was the Tilt-a-Whirl. I had my doubts about this one. It’s definitely more of “ride” than any of the others. I told her we were going to spin around fast and she would have to hang onto the handlebar. She kept saying that she wanted to try it. We stood in line and she watched what it did and she still said she wanted to go on. I think it shocked her a little bit when it first started, but when it was over she was smiling and said it was fun. She is going to be like her father. He enjoys rides. As for me, well, let’s just say the Tilt-a-Whirl was enough!

We walked over to the barns to check out the animals. She saw a lot of cows, some sheep, pigs, rabbits, chickens and geese. The animals were neat but not too big of a deal to her. There was a horse show going on by the stables so we watched that for a bit. She kept saying “the cows are running” and we kept saying “no, those are horses, not cows”!

All in all, everyone had a wonderful time. Next up is the State Fair in about 2 weeks!
