I was pretty excited about taking the kids this year because Lucy is at the age where she loves to look at everything and can toddle around. I thought she'd be pretty impressed with the animals, love the high school cheer/dance competition, and maybe even ride a pony. And Milo has always loved festivals and carnivals, so I figured we were set.
Can I just be honest? The kids were not super impressed. They were really tired and pretty zoned. They both danced a little at the dance competition, but we were there at the wrong time for much excitement (no offense, middle school pom and dance teams...).
|Yay, family selfie.|
|Those are two handsome men right there.|
|Milo - delighted. Lucy - screaming.|
We almost didn't ride the ferris wheel, which is Milo's favorite, for lack of cash. But we found an ATM, and despite the fact that it had started to rain, Nate was determined that it was happening. So while Lucy, Pegs, and I looked on, Milo and Nate rode the fastest-moving ferris wheel I've ever seen. And sweet Milo told Nate, "Daddy, I can't even believe it. I wanted to do this all night." And that makes everything worthwhile, right?
|Best. Dress. Ever.|
