Fun at the Fair

On Wednesday we went to the Fair.  We love the fair - it is so different now, having kids.  As soon as we walked in Leila saw the carousel.  Obviously we had to stop and ride it:


Then we went to the 4-H section, where we made a scarecrow:


And groomed a horse:


Then we walked around looking at all of the tiny baby chicks and ducks, rabbits and guinea pigs and then headed over to the stinky animals - the cows, goats, pigs and horses.  We had some lunch and got to visit daddy's friends (the firefighter station - a bunch of our friends were working, and Leila felt very cool knowing all of the firefighters.) 

Then it was time for Leila's favorite activity of all time - pony rides:

Leila couldn't understand why the pony was named Cinnamon.  "You put cinnamon on your hot chocolate, you don't name your pony Cinnamon!"
Read more about Leila's pony riding love here and here and here and here.

Then rides!!

Dizzy dragons:

the teacups:

Wannabe Dumbo:

and after the rides we shared an ice cream, and snapped some pictures:



Finally, it was just about time to go, but not before we squeezed in one last pony ride:


After a long, hot day at the fair we went a little bananas:

After our day at the fair I went to see "Eclipse" (omgosh, best movie so far!!  Taylor Lautner = pure yum!)  I was home around 11:00 and started packing for our mini vacay in Monterey, but more on that later....

Glad you had a fun time at the fair! I can't believe how much Leila loves the ponies! Kate has never ridden a pony. And, Baby G in that hat is the cutest ever!
