Fun at the Fair

Two trips to the State Fair this year = 2x the fun. My mom and I have taken the boys to the fair for the last few years right before school starts. It's always a lot of fun, but this year was one of the best years yet. It was pretty hot, so it wasn't crowded at all, and it just seemed as though everything was going our way.

The boys pretended to be farmers, sat on four wheelers, sat on tractors, fed goats, and Owen even rode an elephant.
According to the KISS fans riding the elephant with Owen, "Who needs a Harley? If you want to feel power between your legs, ride an elephant." Well said, KISS fans, well said.

The next weekend, Matthew and I were trying to figure out what we wanted to do, and he decided that he had fair envy and wanted to visit the state fair this year too. We did the abbreviated version of the fair, but we did go gawk at Fried Food Row and judge the people eating deep fried butter and chocolate covered bacon. The boys also sat in the biggest tire in the world. (Okay, probably not- but seriously, that thing is mammoth!)
Then we came home and a couple of boys called it a night in a tent. :)
