Anna Lauren LOVED the fair...I mean she LOVED it so much that I never saw her without a smile on her face. And needless to say, she walked right past the "kid" rides and went to the "big" kid rides...here she is on the roller coaster with Matt ~ the 1st ride of the night!
Coming off the roller coaster, which she thought was great fun! Matt said he wouldn't get back on it again. Now...you must remember this fair has been around since my mom was a kid so saying the rides are OLD is somewhat of an understatement!
Mommy just snapping pictures of all these wonderful smiles!
You know she is having fun when she actually looks at the camera and smiles when I ask her to take a picture...
Sweet Reid agreed to ride the "tee-tiny" ferris wheel because we thought Bently would ride with them...well, Bently quickly told us she was not getting on the ferris wheel so Reid rode with Anna Lauren. After it had gone around 15 times (yes, Reid counted), he was thinking...why did I agree to do this?
Nanna pretty much "forced" Bently to get in a car thinking she would like it once the ride started...well, look at her face...I'm thinking she was not thrilled!
Nanna tried one more ride with Bently before giving up...what do you think? I'm thinking she was not so happy with her Nanna! Needless to say, we called it quits with her riding rides and just let her watch the big kids.
The ferris wheel...what all the big kids and Anna Lauren really wanted to ride. You cannot really tell, but that is Anna Lauren and Reid at the top and Matt and Jake behind them. At this point, I stopped and said a quick prayer because I realized Anna Lauren was swinging back and forth and was held in by one small little bar that was not even touching her. If you know me very well, you know I am not a "nervous" mom...but...this put me over the edge!
Anna Lauren smiled and waved the whole time...she LOVED it, despite her mom's nerves!
The fun is over...time to get off...
Just look at her...obviously that was a fun ride too!
And last but not least...the train!
Unfortunately after the train ride it started raining so we had to call it a night...however, the kids would have been completely happy for several more hours!
