2007 Fair

That's a bunch of piglets. We got to the fair bus by 10:00, made it to the fair by 10:15, and then had to wait a bit until they opened the line to buy tickets for the rides at 10:30. We checked out the pigs and some booths, but Connor was really there to do the rides!
First in line for the best ride EVER! The Super Slide!!! He must have done this 30+ times. He'd come down and ask, "Again?" We'd say okay, and he'd hand the mat to the guy working there, get in line, get his armband scanned and off he went with a "Thank you!"

He tried a few other things - the carousel, spinning bears, Fun House, & the big Ferris Wheel. The second best ride was the airplanes.
Saturday is the only day you can buy the armband which allows unlimited rides from 11:00 to 5:00. Lee & I lasted until 3:00. By then, Connor was okay about taking the fair bus and going home again (he could have made it to 5:00 easy). Diana & Trevor could have stayed if they'd wanted, but they decided to come home with us. It was pretty hot out, so I think we were all ready to go (except maybe Connor). All in all, I think we got our money's worth!

Connor has been wanting to go to the fair since April or so. The morning it was fair time he was VERY excited and knew exactly what he wanted to do. The big slide!
