It's Fair Time!


When I think of September, I think of apple picking, apple cider, and my favorite--country fairs!  So far we've been to at least three of them, and everyone in the family seems to have their preference.  My husband loves the food (especially the "bad" stuff like fried mushrooms, fried oreos, and onion rings galore).  Little Lewie loves the rides (especially the cars and the merry-go-round).  My mom loves crafts, and I love the animals.  (Actually, I love it all, which is the reason why if my husband doesn't want to go, I invite my mom and vice versa.)

While I've taken Little Lewie to country fairs before, this year is the first time he's really "understanding" them.  In the past, we kept him in the stroller, and he had a chance to "observe" the animals, the crafts, and the fair happenings.  This time, for the most part, we let him run the show, and he had a great time getting his first "tattoo", visiting the animals, going on a few rides, and enjoying the food.  The pictures below capture a few highlights of the past three weekends.

"Look Mommy, I'm gonna get a real tattoo like Daddy has..."

"I'm still being brave Mommy."

"Check out my tatt!"

Daddy and Lewie at the Slurpee Station.

"This is awesome Mommy!"

This pumpkin weighed a mere 521 lbs.

"Say cheese with Daddy..."

"Ice cream too?  This is my lucky day!"


Let the rides begin...

"Check me out on my Harley!"

"Just wanted to let you know how much fun I'm having Mommy."

Just chillin'.

My mom and Lewie.

Lewie and his "cake pop"!  (Yes, cake on a popsicle.)  Can you tell that over three weekends
we went from shorts and tank tops to sweatshirts and pants?
We're going to try to squeeze in a few more country fairs over the next few weekends, but by mid October, the season will have ended... Time just flies...


  1. Such GREAT pictures showing off LOTS of fun!

  2. It looks like he had the absolute best time! I dream of a real autum like I had when I was a kid.

  3. Awesome! Love the shimmering tattoo. Wish I could be there with my kids to experience the fairs.

  4. How fun! We didn't make it to any fairs, but I really wish we had! I love the picture of you and Lewie - so cute!

  5. Looks like a grand time! Love the glitter painting.

  6. I am obsessed with fairs. This one looks like such fun. I'm glad you guys had a good time. The "just chillin" shot is a great family pic :)
