It was hot as heck this year, but we managed to get through by going in and out of the buildings and shade, and drinking a ton of water & lemonade. Once the sun started to set, it cooled down quite a bit thank goodness.
We were all hot sweaty messes at the fair- Needed to super-hydrate!!
Julianna liked riding the kiddie tractors
My hysterical laughing child!!
Julianna loved the pony ride! The pony's name was Vince. He was super soft and she loved petting him .
The only issue with Julianna's John Deere dress was, it kept coming untied. Here's daddy straightening it out. At one point, we were wheeling her in her stroller through one of the vendor tents, and one of the vendors rudely pointed out that our child was naked and said she should get Mardi Gras beads for it. My husband was ready to punch the guy - but then we saw that our child was indeed naked from the waste up in the stroller... and we had to laugh. Sort of.
Julianna on the choo-choo train ride. What ride doesn't this kid love?!
I can't remember what ride this was - but by this point, anything resembling a ponytail on Julianna's head was long gone from being windblown, sweat on, and tugged on.
Mommy with Julianna on the kiddie rollercoaster. This is a rare site. You won't see me on any rides too often. I also found out half way through the ride I sat on the wrong side of my daughter, because when we went around the one bend rather hard, I almost crushed her! Oops! She still laughed & smiled the whole time so I guess she was ok.
Who doesn't love the carrousel?
And what's a day at the fair without one full-fledged meltdown?!
Milkshake solves everything.
Here is her John Deere dress - pretty cute!
Holy sweaty fair hair!
Daddy & Jules on the tractor at the fair. This might be my favorite picture of the bunch.
Do you go to your state fair every year like us? What's your favorite thing to do there?
