When we got there, we headed straight to the Ferris wheel. It is by far Hallie's favorite thing about the fair. I must admit, it's my favorite thing, too! It rained on us while we were on the Ferris wheel. Thankfully it was a quick shower and didn't rain again until we got home. I attribute the lack of rain to the fact that we carried umbrellas into the fair with us to have to lug around for 3 hours. ;o)
We had a great time--we all got our fair fix. Hallie got a wristband this year and rode lots of rides and even won a fish! And by "won a fish" I mean we spent $4 trying to win a 10 cent fish and the lady gave one to Hallie for "free". She also talked us into a little home for said fish. Hallie was quite upset when she handed over her goldfish (which was brown) and watched the lady put it under the counter and get a new fish. She was comforted by the fact that the lady tossed in a friend for the new fish. Jonathan got his funnel cake (whih he generously shared with all). And I got my very large bag of cotton candy (which I also shared). :o)
Hallie was SO excited to ride the Ferris wheel!
So proud to have a wristband (meaning she could ride any ride as many times as she wanted)!
Yummy funnel cake. :o)
Hallie ran into a friend from last year's school--Malachi! They had lots of fun!
The beginning of trying to win a fish...
$9 later (and we stopped at Target for $5 fish food later!)
Daddy bought me cotton candy! Yummy!
