tis my favorite season of the year. The rustling of the fallen leaves in that cool autumn breeze while the sun shines down with the fading summer warmth. One of my favorite fall traditions is to visit our local county fair with my parents and sister (and Kev) for the yummy eats, amusements, and all the small town Americana goodness.
The giant slide was the biggest hit of the night, especially with our Va-vi who wanted to ride it several times in a row by grabbing each of our hands and pulling us towards the entrance gate as soon as she reached the bottom of slide.
Greyson tried the rock wall this year and after a few minutes of hesitation, it took only the challenge of getting to the top like the older boy in the next harness for him to perk up and scale that wall like it was easy. He was so proud!
We had dinner, played some games, and of course hit all the rides the kids requested. Violet was tall enough to ride the little roller coaster this year, and just like her older bro and sis when they were two before her - cried the entire time. Three for three! Rusty got to take a ride on the carousel and then spent the most of the night in the carrier taking in all the sights and sounds.
And the animal barns! Another of our favorites, talking to all the 4H kids that are eager to share the names and information about their animals with our excited kids who practically skip through the barns peeking in and sweetly greeting each animal.
happy fall ya'll.
