We went to the animal fair.
The birds and the beasts were there.
The big baboon by the light of the moon was combing his auburn hair.
The monkey he got drunk and sat on the elephant’s trunk.
The elephant sneezed and feel on his knees and that was the end of the monk.
The monk, the monk, the monk.
Since 2008 (man was #1 tiny!), we’ve made sure to head to the North Georgia State Fair as a family. Each year is different and fun, and presents it’s own unique challenges. This year’s theme for us? Divide and conquer.
Mr. Serious took the two older girls because they could go on a ton more rides (and I’m not allowed to), and I took E.
While the older two were hang-gliding,
But, the look on her face, and the “ohhs” and “wows” were totally worth it. (Next time, I’m going to request the one that only does like two complete circles or wear some motion sickness bands!)
Mr. Serious also took the girls on the ferris wheel, since I proved on my last trip to be too much of a nervous nelly!
But, apparently, I’m not too nervous to let my 19 month old on a carnival ride all by herself? She loved it, though…can’t argue with that! Last year, no rides. This year, like four!
And while E rode the mini-caterpillar ride, her big sisters rode together on the mini-caterpillar roller coaster.
And, they went on the swings. Man, do those go fast! And, high.
E and I should have hit up the petting zoo, but instead we went in search of fair food. We went for an elephant ear. Turns out they aren’t as good as I remembered…we should have gone with cotton candy or ribbon fries. Fortunately, the hubs went back with the older two girls and scooped me up a caramel apple. Now that was tasty. Unfortunately, a tiny little belly babe is having a rock party from all of the sugar!
