A Night At The Fair

We had a great time at the state fair this year with Baby Avery, Uncle Matt, and Aunt Kiley.  We packed up the strollers and diaper bags and were off!  I felt like a super prepared "mom" as I packed up the sunscreen, sippy cups, diapers and hand sanitizer.  We were prepared for a fun night out with Callie's favorite cousin!

Baby Avery ("baby-aby" as Callie would say) did great too!  She spent most of the time in her stroller and a little bit of time in the Baby Bjorn. Isn't she a cutie?  Callie still loves to give her lots and lots of kisses.  And she likes to point out where her eyes and nose are.  He mom isn't too fond of Callie always "pointing at" {touching} Avery's eyes.  ;)

We ate LOTS of fried food and anything you could find on a stick.  We loved the Australian potatoes drenched with ranch and cheese sauce.  This was a new item for us this year.

We saw lots of animals: we pet the bunnies {they were giant!}, saw sheep and goats and cows.  Oh, and big John Deere tractors.  Grandpa L, we took this picture especially for you!

We tried some pork chops on a was practically a health food at the fair. 

And mini donuts, my favorite.  :)  Not so much a health food, but I had to have them.

The adventure of the night was when Kyle took Callie down the giant slide. He had been dreaming about this moment for weeks.

Hopefully she won't have nightmares about it for weeks to come.  ;)  No, she didn't seem to mind it too much.  However, it was approaching bedtime so that could have something to do with it.  Actually, her favorite part was climbing up the hundreds of stairs!

Good thing her super strong daddy was there to protect her.  :)  I just love her face in this picture.

When she got down, she wanted "mama."  This is her new favorite word and cries for "mama" a few times each day.  This must be a stage she is going through.  It's pretty cute sometimes, especially considering the fact that she only recent started saying "mama" but has said "dada" practically since she was born.  :) I think daddy feels a little left out in this stage.  :)

Overall, it was a great night at the fair.

It was definitely worth staying up two hours past bedtime and digesting lots of junk food.  :) Until next year!

Looks like fun!

I saw a double stroller that looked like a Bugaboo but it's called iCandy. I haven't googled it or anything, just thought I would pass that info along!
