Fair Day!

The county fair is happening this week, at first I was all 'uhhh it's so much work'. But then I was all, 'but the girls will love it'. And they did.

So us Austin's loaded up and headed to the Benton Franklin County Fair! I wanted to get there early in order to beat the crowds and the 95° weather. Mission accomplished, we were there when the opened and were home at noon. 

"Yeehaws" make her world go round.

We were sure to hit up all the animal barns, the girls loved loved loved the chickens and rabbits. Although as the animals got bigger Reagan grew more aprehensive. Carter however would have been giving them all a test drive had it not been for her stoller buckle. 

Carter did a lot of pointing, and would pet anything that came within reach.

I just have to comment on all the 4H kids we came across, they were all so amazing! They are all so outgoing and friendly, each of them asking if the girls wanted to pet their hens, sheeps, goats... And they would just talk and talk about their animals, I loved seeing their passion and love for what they do. It made me really hopeful that our kids will want to participate in clubs and groups like these to help develop different parts of their personalities. 

We hit up the hot dog stand for some lunch and headed back to the car so I could nurse Lincoln before heading home. 

It was fun! We all had a great time, Lincoln was, as always, perfectly behaved. And we had limited meltdowns from the girls...

It was short and sweet, and a quick way to drop a buck. I can't imagine how expensive a fun family day like this will be when the kids don't get free admission, and require more than half a hot dog each.

Reag pouting because they got cotton candy instead of ice cream.'Hmmpfff, life is hard'.
