Summer would not be complete without a trip to the Brookhaven Exchange Club Fair...Anna Lauren talks about two things all year...Vacation Bible School at FBC, Brookhaven and the Brookhaven fair. And thanks to Nanna, she was able to do both this summer and loved every minute of them.
Thanks for a super fun Saturday night Nanna...the grandkids all had so much fun. However, it was a little different this year...Reid had been in band camp from 8 AM to 9 PM all week so he was too tired to even go and Jake rode with us and then hung out with his friends until we sent him a "let's go" text. The big grandkids are teenagers for sure!
Anna and Anna Lauren (Anna's biggest fan)...Anna Lauren was so excited to see Anna...she was not expecting to see her at the fair. It was fun...we got to see all our family / cousins...everyone was there!
Joey and Barbie had Madison (a family friend) with them...Anna Lauren immediately latched on to her. She LOVES "big" girls and Madison was so sweet...she rode all the rides with Anna Lauren.
I think Cooper was the most fun to watch...he loved all the little kid rides and had himself the best time.
So proud...we decided she was big enough to ride the swings this year! At this fair there are no height limitations, etc...you just do whatever your parents will allow. I was a little hesitant about this (look at the thing...you'll understand why), but let me just say, she loved it!
They rode the swings three times...let's just say that back to back right before we left was not a good idea. Anna Lauren experienced motion sickness for the first time and threw up all in Nanna's yard when we got home. But...she said it was worth it because the swings were so fun!
Here she goes!
Higher and Faster...I gave her a big speech about not letting go. Joey was like, Mandi look at her...she and Madison were holding hands. Sweet...but...she really should have been holding on I think!
Bently rode all the rides with Cooper...they thought the car was great fun!
The airplanes...not so much fun...I couldn't even get a smile on this ride.
So...this just seems cruel to me...looks just like a cage! However, Bently and Cooper climbed on and rode this "baby" ferris wheel. Needless to say, Cooper was trying to get out of the "cage" by the end.
Anna Lauren rode the carousel with Bently and Cooper...other than that, she was pretty much on all the "big" rides.
Madison didn't want to ride the ferris wheel and after last year, Matt said he would never ride it again...so...I rode with Anna Lauren...we had fun! The funny thing about this fair is that the rides are the same ones my mom rode on as a kid...so...they can be a bit scary according to Matt.
Finally a smile out of Bently...I have the hardest time getting her to smile for a picture!
