Armada Fair 2009!

Well it was that time of year again...Emily's favorite week of summer! We had plans to go to the fair multiple times but unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate this year. We only made it once but we made the most of it.

The night started out kind of rocky. Em met me at work with the boys and then we were meeting my mom at the fair. Our plan was to see the animals and eat fair food (not go on rides.) However, while at my work, my boss asked Carson what his favorite part of the fair was - the animals or the rides? From that moment on, it was "Rides, Rides, Roller Coaster, Roller Coaster, Roller Coaster!" That was what we heard all the way to the fair. I love roller coasters but I hate fair rides so I said "Maybe Granny will go on with you!" I know my mom hates fair rides too.

We had to wait about ten minutes for my mom to get there and then we headed over to the rides. The thing with Carson is that while he is on a ride, he is already looking for the next ride. I put both boys on the little train ride. In the middle of the ride, Carson spotted the bumblebee ride and proceeded to unbuckle himself and Griffin and try to get off while the train was moving. That was fun! My mom was a sport and did some rides with him and so did I. Then I bribed him with fries to take a break. After some fair food, we headed over to the animals. We were going to do the pony rides....however, Carson wanted to ride the huge horses that the police were riding around the fairgrounds. Then the meltdown began because he didn't want the other ponies:>)

Once he calmed down and we finally got into the barns with the lambs and pigs, the fun began. Carson LOVED petting them. Griffin, of course, was scared of everything.

At least we ended on a good note and made some fun memories! Here are some pics....
