A Day at the Fair – 2016
after several years off. It was this
year, when Emma was about 4 months old that we started the tradition of taking
pictures of the kids next to the giant pumpkins. I always take Easter and Christmas pictures,
but having these pictures in front of the big pumpkins, as we have added
children and they have grown, it is nice to see the change!
We had a wonderful time. We
started a bit later than we typically do because we went to church before we
went to the fair.
healthy, is delicious, and something we all look forward to. The kids had hot dogs and we shared French fries
with malt vinegar – does anyone else eat their fries this way?
halls, taking a trip back in time with visiting the fair museum as well as
seeing all that the Ancient Ones of Maine had to offer. I also love to see how the one room schools
were set up as well as the homes, especially how the kitchens had open fires
with a little oven built into the wall.
Emma always wants to take a ride with the horses, and this year was the
second year we saw miniature horses at the fair giving rides to people. I never realized how much weight they could
I love to see how the kids interact with the animals, showing so much love to them all. I think that they definitely inherited that from me, considering Matt does
not want to have the responsibility of farm life – at all. I think I might be wearing him down a bit though!
animals, and family, the perfect way to end the summer.
agricultural fairs in your area? What is
your favorite part?
A truly amazing experience for the kids. Love the smile they show at their faces too! Amazing indeed!
Awww it looks like they are having a blast!! We have tons of fairs and festivals in my city and my state, but I haven't been to an agricultural type one in about 10 years.
I love to go to the fair. I am glad to see that fair season is rolling back around. I am looking forward to heading back out to them soon!
Omg how fun!!!!!! We just love the fair!!! Unfortunately it rained the entire week we had our local fair this year so we didn't go.
This looks like fun! I tried to take my kids to the petting farm this weekend and they weren't having it. I'm not sure they would be up for the fair. LOL.
I love going to the fair too! I look forward to the Hawaii State Farm Fair each August – it has the best food and produce! Not to mention the animals are super cute 🙂
What a great day out, the kids looked like they were having so much fun. I love going to the fair too. Always a fun and great experience.
My family loves going to fairs. Looks like you all had a wonderful time.
I used to love going to the Ohio State Fair when I was little but I've yet to take my kids to a fair – I really need to. It looks like you had a great time.
I love Falls because of the fairs! We go to an Apple Festival every year.
I love going to fairs! It's so fun and it's always a different experience every time. The kids have a lot of fun as well! There will always be good food too, which makes the experience even more amazing.
What a fun day. I lvoe fairs and fai food. I think food taste so much better at a fair.
I grew up in Peoria, IL and the Heart of Illinois Fair was very agricultural. So fun!
I love seeing such fun events for families. It is a good thing to do and make memories that will last you a lifetime.
Awww. The fair! I can't wait to take my kids. I took my oldest when he was younger, but we haven't had the opportunity with my younger two. I won't lie, the petting zoo is still my favorite!
Super cute pictures and great vlog! So glad you had a beautiful day – despite a little sunburn ? xo
When my kids were younger we went to a lot of fairs. They loved the animals.
We have so many fairs and opportunities to meet different animals all the time in my area. We love it! Looks like you all had a great day together!
It definitely looks like you are making awesome memories! Great photos!
Sounds like a wonderful family day! It was way too hot for us to enjoy the fair here this year but I can't wait for the fall fair coming up soon!
This looks like such a fun day! I'm so glad that your family had such a good time there together.
Oh what fun! We weren't able to go to the fair this year as Hubby's new schedule didn't really let us enjoy a Summer but these are the best memories. Thanks so much for sharing.
This sounds like it's really fun! I love family traditions like that, especially because it's something for the kids to look forward to!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Fair Food! Its soooo not healthy, but once a year its OK. And its sooooo great to have some cotton candy or fried veggies…anything off the normal path! Looks like a great time!
We missed this year but the kids got to go. The animals are always a fave 🙂
We love the fair, the animals and the food are totally the best part. The kids love it and ask to go every year.
We don't have fairs here in Peru where I live but we do have a petting zoo that is actually pretty nice not too far from our house. I miss big fairs though like the Wisconsin State Fair. Cream pies and all sorts of cheeses. Very nice post!
Yes, I love fairs! I think animals are my favorite part. I'm always up for some junk food, too. I used to like rides when I was younger, but not so much anymore. My husband likes looking at tractors and other farm equipment. Thank you for letting me tag along!
Gosh this looks like fun!! I've never been to a fair and I totally want to go to one now!!
We go every year. It's one of my daughter's highlights of the year! This is our first year homeschooling so we made a mid week day of it this week. 🙂 Looks like you had a good time! My favorite part this year, other than going on a WEDNESDAY!! was watching my kiddo break through some fear and do things she wanted to do, but was also scared to do!
We haven't been to the local fair in years…looks like a fun time!
Looks like y'all had a wonderful time! I think it's great to have a tradition like this. We don't make it to the fair but we usually go to some type of craft show or heritage fair every fall.
