{State Fair 2009}

Sunday, August 23, 2009
Last Sunday Ryan and I loaded up the kids and headed for the State Fair! I LOVE the state fair, and both Ryan and I have been every year since we were little kids. I mostly would go because I dad helps run the Beef House, while Ryan would go with his family to watch the horses. I guess I was in with the cows while he was playing in the hay ... otherwise I am sure our paths would have crossed!

Last year we took Braeden, but he was still pretty little, and probably didn't get anything out of it. This year was a different story. Although we still couldn't do a whole lot with the kids, we were able to find some kid friendly activities! Ronald McDonald was there (Braeden kept calling him french fries ... haha) a rain forest live performance, the petting zoo, pony rides, and or course, we took them to go see the cows with Grandpa.

We tried to get Braeden to ride one of the ponies, but he flipped out as soon as Ryan tried to put him on one, poor guy. We also were able to get both kids the MO Chip, which puts kids in the system in case of an Amber Alert. It took about 45 mins to register both, but now they have both kids picture, DNA, fingerprints, history, etc. It's really important to do, even though it's a ridiculously long wait! (Can't you just imagine what little Bayler's fingerprints looked like ... I should have asked for a copy :)

All-in-all it was a great day. We got there pretty early in the morning and left by 3 in the afternoon ... it was a beautiful day, and I can't wait until next year. Got to love the state fair!
