This week we went to our third (and FINAL!) fair of the year! :) Both the kids really enjoyed it and it was perfect fair weather. A few clouds and mild (low 70s) weather! It was also "dollar" day (I use that word loosely because the tickets were 4/$5 so not exactly dollar day!) and all rides were only one ticket! Plus we didn't have to pay to get in! So we bought a few tickets and the kids had fun. Jacob looks much bigger than his age, so even though he wasn't tall enough for any of the rides (not by himself anyway), nobody said anything about him riding.

Daddy went on the first ride--the hot air balloons. Jacob wasn't too sure. Anna loved it. Daddy said he was a little worried Jacob was going to get sick--it went a lot faster than he thought it would! But he didn't...he just didn't enjoy it!

Next up was the turtle ride. It had a steering wheel, so Jacob was happy!

Anna was ecstatic that we ran into her bestest friend Jake at the fair!!! They rode Dumbo together and had a blast! Neither one stopped smiling the entire ride. :)
*Doesn't Anna look so much older with bangs?? It's taken me a few days to get used to the new 'do:) *

Best friends!

After we ate supper, the kids played in the fountains. It actually got fairly warm when the sun broke through the clouds. Luckily I had packed an extra set of pants for both kids (in case of accidents, not in case of water play!). So I let them go crazy and get as wet as they wanted :) Anna kind of tip-toed around things at first.


Getting closer and braver...

He stood at the edge for quite a while and just watched. Then he got brave and stepped inside the circle of fountains. He really liked this spraying one...

Where'd it go???

THERE it is!! haha

Ooohhhh! That one got me good!

Eventually, Anna got pretty wet! They both had a lot of fun. We all had a lot of fun! And of course, we can't go anywhere without running into a dozen people that know Aaron! :)
Anna was very disappointed to find out that we weren't going back the next day! Lately it seems like something "special" has been going on every day. She now asks every day, when I pick her up from preschool, "What are we going to do special today Mama?" She doesn't like it when I tell her nothing! And playing with her brother does NOT fall under the "do something special" category! :)
