The hubby and I ventured out there Friday night to hang out with some friends at the infamous beer tent...which I had never been to before. It was nice to hang out with our friends, but I still say that the whole beer tent thing is really not my scene. It got real crowded as the night drug on, and I got bumped into a lot.
Saturday afternoon we took Ryder out to the fair. We all thought he would enjoy it this year....we were wrong. If there was something worse than being wrong, that's what we would be. All he wanted to do was run around, which he obviously couldn't do because there were so many people. So, we had him strapped in his stroller most of the time. He rode two rides, and played one game, and we only stayed for about 1.5-2 hours because that's all he could really take. He enjoyed two things: the food, and the slide. There's always next year.... :-)
Here are some pictures of the fair festivities....
What, was it bright out or something, Dar? Or, are you just quinting because you were happy to see me? ;-)
His first glimpse at all of the fair madness.
Dad helped keep Ryder occupied for a majority of the fair visit. We just had to keep on movin'.
This is when Ryder decided it would be fun to take off at a mad dash away from all of us.
My lil' man on the carousel. He didn't like it much.
He loved this slide.
Hello camel! Seriously, where else would you be able to look at a camel and then immediately go see a bunch of goats, all within 10 feet of eachother?! The Fairbury fair, that's where!! Our fair is pretty fly like that.
Look--a baby kangaroo!! So adorable.
A random turtle waltzing around with all of the goats. .....Ok?
Ryder liked looking at the animals from the outside. We took him inside the petting zoo and he freaked out. We're talking a full blown bawling fit.
Doesn't the name of this food establishment sound a bit dirty? Maybe it's just me and my own filthy mind....
Hey look! A random guy on stilts. It's what every fair needs!
Happy Wednesday, and thanks for reading! :-)
