Midway Fun

This past weekend was our annual trip to the Allen County Fair with Grandma & Grandpa. I, however, forgot to take my camera with me, so I had to settle for using my cell phone. I still haven't transferred the pictures over to my laptop, or I would share with you. We went with Mom & Mike, and met Brandon, Jenny, Carmen, Delaney, Missy & Matt over there. The kids had ride bracelets to get on as many rides as they wanted from noon until 5:00... we let them ride from about 1:30 until 4:00... enough is enough, ya know?!

The best part of the day for me was when all three of my kids got on the 1001 Nights ride (see it here). Meagan was barely tall enough, but she passed the height test and was super pumped to go on it. The first time around, she and Sebastian went. Isaac went with Grandma to ride something else. The look(s) on Meagan's face were priceless! She went from great big smiles and laughter to 'I'm not sure this was a good idea.' In the end, though, she got off and ran up to me yelling, "Let's go again!!!" The second time, Isaac decided to get on with them. I guess if Meagan can make it through, then it's probably safe for him to do as well. More funny faces all around for us to laugh at while they rode. They all had a blast!

Anyway, my sweet friend Krista released one of the best kits EVER just in time for fair time! Here's a layout I did with it using pictures from last year's trip to the fair:

Journaling: It is always so much fun to visit the Allen County Fair with Grandma & Grandpa B. This year you got ride bracelets again, and revisited some of your favorites from last year... the airplanes, the big wavy racing slide, and the carousel to name a few. You also ventured out and tried new things this year... like the school bus ride. I am pretty sure that one will not be added to the list of favorites - at least for Meagan. August '09

You can check out Krista's kit on her blog here... there's a free download to go with it if you're interested!
