Ever since I was a little girl, I’d go to this fair every year. The memories I have spending time with the family here, is something I’ll have with me forever. As I’ve gotten older though, it’s become less fun. Partly because, the insane upside down rides make my brain feel like scrambled eggs and throw my equilibrium off, and 2nd, I’m the one paying for it now. Boo!
But none of that matters. All that matters is letting Arya enjoy it and making those fun memories with my little girl.
Normally I am cringing at the prices of things at the fair, like $7 for a corn dog? $30 for ride bracelets? lol I remember when it was so much cheaper, but it’s a once a year thing that I’m willing to splurge a little on for a day of family fun.
I was hoping Arya would be able to ride some of the kiddie rides with me or dad, but most of the kiddie rides were 36″, and I think she’s about 33″, so she was only able to ride on the carousel according to the signs.
We were able to talk a carney into letting us take her on the rotating strawberry, which was cute. She loves strawberries! I mean, who doesn’t!?
She enjoyed it since she loves spinning in our computer chairs.
Next we had to head over to the family fun park and let her ride a pony since she’s enthralled with her rocking horse that makes horsey sounds (which she replicates pretty well I might add).
As soon as she spotted them, she was squeeling with joy. I knew she’d love it!
When it was time to get off, she cried. My poor girl needs a real pony.
Luckily some family in my husbands hometown have some horses that she can see and ride when we visit, which won’t cost us $7 for less than 5 minutes. Eek!
She didnt get upset the next day since I think she got a big dose of numerous horses in the horse barn right before. She loved when they’d come over and say hi to her through the gate, and she would reach out and touch their noses.
We didnt watch any concerts since they start at 7pm and we were ready to go home by then, nor did we play any carnival games. But that’s okay, we endulged on food, barns and exhibits.
It was great fun as you can see..and I can’t wait til next year when she can enjoy the rides more.
