I had been years ago with my family and had really wanted to take the children, it was a beautiful day and we had a wonderful time.
Here Caleb is trying out the vintage fire truck at the front entrance.
Taking his sister for a drive...Charis was saying, "this black seat is hot on my legs!"
Can you guess who these people are? This was when I went to the fair with my family and we sat on the old fire truck! Go Daddy, love those glasses. ;) And he is holding Margaret, we went 11 years ago...wow.
Who are these guys at the petting zoo?!
The children were fascinated and enjoyed seeing the ones that had laid eggs.
There were lots of rabbits but I didn't get a picture of them.
After looking at all the livestock we went to the exhibition halls. We recently have been studying the honey bee and C & C really enjoy the Moody Science DVD on the subject. A man had a booth with sample hives, the spinner contraption for getting the honey out of the frames, and other pictures and accessories. It was really neat!
They had all kinds of plants and flowers there for judging, this orchid was pretty.
A very detailed wood carving.
I just had to take a picture of this cake since I had just bought the pan on clearance at Wal-Mart! Caleb has been asking for months to be able to ride a horse so we splurged and let C & C do the pony ride. Caleb has a cute smirky face on, he really enjoyed himself and wanted to ride each one!
Charis had fun she just didn't want Charles to let go of her hand. :)
Mercy said, "Forget the ponies, I'm gonna grab me a cat nap!"
For the Cwane boys! We took this picture especially for you. :)
I was there too...
We were in little boy heaven!
Oh, I almost forgot the pigs. As you can tell by the snout, these guys were big. ;)
This guy was drinking out of his spicket, it was neat.
They have other booths that people are advertising things and they had a Gideon Bible booth. When we walked past Charis realized what they were and yelled out, "BIBLES!!!" They were orange which is C & C's favorite color and the gentleman running the booth gave them each one. As you can see from the pic, it is very treasured, she didn't want to let go of it!
We had a wonderful morning and I enjoyed all the pictures so that's why I had a hard time trying to pick and ended up posting most of them. :)
Plus the fact that I *finally* figured out that you can post 5 pics at a time
. Yes, previously I have been putting 1 pic at a time on each post. And yes, I am an idiot but there is hope! ;)
