Yesterday was our ride day. We had unlimited ride bracelets. While I took my daughter's place doing herdsmanship in the dog barn so she could finish up her dog judging competition, the boys rode rides. And rode and rode. They returned with slushies and red faces (from the heat, not sunburn.) I then joined them for more rides, but the kind I like (no spinning or upside down ones.)
A 4-H friend brought Rose to the fairgrounds for me after her dance camp. The four kids shared the largest Elephant Ear I've ever seen. Wow! It was the size of a pizza. The four of them had trouble finishing it. I was on Day 6 of my second Whole 30 so had to pass. But boy, I was tempted to take a little taste.
Soon Mackenna had finished her shifts in the dog barn and the expo center. That meant riding more rides. This is where the scary comes in. She is fourteen and has no fear when it comes to rides. I get quesy just looking at what she wants to ride so I did a lot of waiting while they went on the scary stuff. I made the mistake of going on the hang gliders. My stomach is still feeling that one. Unfortunately, my son has my disposition when it comes to ride. He did a lot of waiting with me.
It was a great day. Lots of food, fun and prizes won playing the dart game. Exactly what a county fair should be!
I hope you had a great Monday and an even better Tuesday!
