State Fair

We went to our State Fair today and the kids had so much fun!  They have this fun little farm area where the kids can pretend to harvest food.  Michaela loved it!


She even got to rope a (fake) steer and ride a (fake) horse!
Then on the way to the Petting Zoo...
She spotted the REAL ponies and spent the next 10 minutes whining mercilessly.  I don't usually give in to the demands of pint-size dictators, but then I started remembering when my parents used to let me ride the ponies at the fair and I couldn't resist.  It was a good decision, Michaela loved it!
She was so happy and proud of herself!  It was definitely the best part of her day!
Rafael kept himself entertained with a balloon...
and just hanging out in the stroller and people watching.
Michaela spent the rest of the morning playing around in the various kid areas.  Like the  "sand"box filled with dry corn kernels...
Making some art...
and playing with blocks, turtles, fossils and more!
The kids were tired out when we got home!  Although when Rafael woke up from his nap, he rediscovered that awesome balloon.

Aww! I'm sorry we missed all that, but Naomi definitely wouldn't have lasted. I bet M will remember the ponies! That's still what Naomi remembers most about the fair.

You captured some fantastic moments! I kept forgetting to take pictures. I know that the ponies are all Lucas remembers from the fair too.

It was really good to see you and the kids!
