Since we didnt take a "real" vacation this summer we took the kids to the county fair which lucky for us is about 3 minutes from our house! We thought we were being pretty clever since the kids got in free and we planned to do all the free stuff but man you can really rack up a bill when buying something to eat and something to drink! We ended up spending more that we planned but the kids had a great time so it was worth it!
They had a petting zoo, which the kids loved! It was just a little fenced in area with all the animals roaming free and you could just go inside. I thought Colby might be a little afraid but he was so excited to be there with the animals and actually got pretty mad when it was time to go!
We got some food for the kids to feed some of the animals and as you can see Lacey thought it was awesome!
She also found a cow and while it wasnt a black and white one she was still excited!
Dylan wanted a pic with the white goat!
Lacey kissing the cow.
There was a guy making just about anything out of balloons -it was pretty amazing what he could do! Lacey got 2 butterflies!
Dylan got an octopus hat thing.
Here is the balloon guy.
Abby got a pink flower hat.
Then they got their faces painted. We had to wait for forever!!
We also walked through and saw all the animals. We were walking through looking at all the cows and there was a huge black and white and Lacey gasped in a huge breath and said "oh its my favorite kind! Can we get him? Can we get him?" She was so excited! I dont know why she loves cows so much but she does!
We also went back the next afternoon and had to go see the cows again and then we went over to the actual "fair" area and let them ride some rides which they thought was pretty fun. So all in all it was alot of fun and the kids had a great time. I think we might have to go again next year now that the kids know what they will be missing!
