The State Fair

This past Thursday, John took off work, and he, Abbey, Elijah and I went to the State Fair. We had a great time. The weather was wonderful, the crowds were light (as we were leaving it was getting very crowed), and the kids were both in great moods! The pictures do the talking....

We started off at the carousel

Elijah wasn't so sure this was a good thing
And so began his ride experience... and so ended it!

Abbey would have to go solo on the rest
Didn't faze her a bit!
(As we were leaving, we saw a "for big people" ride. She pointed to it and said, "I want to ride that one. I can do it by myself!")

Elijah was happy to have his bottom firmly planted in the stroller

He would go down the slide with me

They both enjoyed the clown show

John had to try the famous Krispy Kreme Doughnut Bacon Cheese Burger
(A perfect way to ruin a Krispy Kreme Doughnut, in my opinion)

Elijah trying his first cotton candy.

I can assure you no one envied us the ride home when they heard the kids play their new toys

The only thing that would have made the day better, would have been if all of our kids had been there. That night as I tucked Abbey in bed, she said, "Tomorrow we're going back with our whole family, and we will all ride the roller coaster together!"



  1. Can I take Abbey with me next year? I need another ride partner? :)

    And can I just say "gag" and "double gag" on the KK cheeseburger???

    The pictures are for all!

  2. Love that picture of Elijah eating his cotton candy ~ I have a similar one of Darcy enjoying her first taste of spun sugar.
    And I hate we couldn't go together, my tro could have used an additional ride partner!
    Sweet pictures of you and the kids and then John and the kids.
    By the way, I'm with you, I'll stick to a funnel cake before adding beef to a Krispy Kreme ANYDAY!

  3. Great pics....looks like it was so much fun! Thanks for sharing..
