a saturday at the fair

February 02 2013 004

i have been wanting to go to a fair for years

not so much for the rides because i am not such a rides kind of girl (although i was forced to get on the ferris wheel) but more for the fair food and atmosphere

i guess the fair just reminds me of being a little girl and going to the small fairs in portugal

when i saw that Drea had taken Marlowe to the fair near to where they live, i knew we just had to go before another one passed us by

we got there just a little after noon and it was dark when we left

there were lots of rides, animals, food, candy….

we did it all

let me tell you something about the fair though, it is expensive!!

the cheapest way out was to get a bracelet for $35. Will, Lily and Darren got one each

Lily definitely got the most out of hers because she went on possibly every ride her height would permit her

it was worth every dollar because there were smiles on Lily’s face from ear to ear the whole time

most of the time Lily just hangs with us and does what we do. it felt good to give her a full day of just kid fun

and because pictures speak louder than words, here are lots of them for you to feast your eyes on. and yes, i edited. believe it or not…

hope you all had a great weekend as well
