We actually went to the fair 2 weeks ago, but Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day made all regularly scheduled posting take a back seat. This is the 2nd time we've gone to the state fair since we've lived here and it was a lot of fun. The kids got free tickets for being in "private school." (The state of TX recognizes homeschool as private school) We decided to go on a Wednesday because if you donate 3 canned goods to the North Texas Food Bank (GREAT organization! Check them out) you get in for $2 instead of $16. Plus, the fair is not nearly as crowded during the day on a weekday. Just another homeschooling perk!
A friend came with us and I'm so grateful. Not only was it more fun with a buddy, it helps SO MUCH to have a 3rd pair of hands with this trio. Plus, when Allan's leg was tired and the kids wanted to do something he wasn't overly interested in, she helped me and had just as much fun as I did. I have to say-that in itself will probably bond her to me forever, but it helps that she's a pretty amazing person, too :P ;)
Without further adieu, here is the beloved photo dump:
You MUST click on that picture and zoom as close to her face as you can get. I can't even believe I made that shot, I bought the one from the booth just in case, but here it is. OMG. PRICELESS!! The best part was that when I was pregnant with her, I was working for Dominos driving pizzas and saw that a little carnival was in town, so when I got home that night, I took my tips and dragged Allan down there. We got in the gate about 20 minutes before it closed and got on the Crazy Mouse. Now she's all growed up and riding it with her daddy! (Uhhh, glad to know it didn't jack up her brain too much...) She wanted to ride it again so bad she paid for her AND his tickets to get on the 2nd time.
There were so many more pictures and memories, but blogger takes forever to upload, so I'm done with it for now. Hope you enjoyed! Hope your October is fabulous, too :)
