Fair Day!

Yesterday we had a family day at the fair. We were naughty, and let the girls skip school, so we could have a day there. We figured it was going to cost an arm & a leg, so why not go early and get the most out of our money...

The weather was perfect in my opinion. It was a bit chilly in the morning for the girls, but it turned out quite nice. Thankfully no rain, even though for a bit it looked like it was a possibility.

Things started out rather rocky, for Jilly was in a mood...sometimes I swear she is PMSing already... She whined about EVERYTHING. Thankfully the whining eased up mid day. The girls all got wrist bands to ride whatever they wanted as often as they wanted. Kels went on a few of the big kid rides. Jilly had a few of her favorites too. Kels talked Jilly into the riding the Spider with her...that didn't go well LOL. We got Bree to ride a few things, mainly the carousel, and the giant slide. She went on the slide a few times with Kelsey, then Kels went off to do her Bill got a wrist band too and did the slide with Bree, over and over and over and over again! I swear she rode it about 10 times with Kelsey and about 20 with Bill. She rode it once with Jilly, but that didn't go'll see in the pics I'm going to post below. It was so cute watching her ride with Bill. She'd squeal all the way down with a big smile on her face. At the bottom she'd jump off the mat, and go out the exit gate and get back in line before Bill even got up LOL. Poor Bill got his exercise in yesterday going up all those steps.

We walked around for like 8 hrs yesterday. I was so tired and my feet hurt so bad that I totally forgot to get my funnel cake before leaving :( Sucks for me. Probably a good thing for my ass though... :) I'll just have to make my own sometime in the near future, but they sure don't taste as good as the fair ones.

Anyways...on to the pictures...
