Family Time at the State Fair

10/05/2013

On Thursday afternoon we headed over to the State Fair with my in-laws, David ended up meeting us after he got off work!

I love the fair but I knew I didn't want to go on a weekend because it would just be too much, you try maneuvering a massive stroller and a toddler through those weekend crowds so we went on a week night.  As with most fairs it was just huge, unless you have a full day to be there there's just no way to see everything plus the main reason we go to these things is for the kids since Hannah is finally at an age that she can do more of the activities!


First up was the animal tent...everything from a GIANT giraffe to pigs, goats and a mini horse!  You can tell Savannah was just thrilled to be by the pig right?  Next door was a smaller tent with smaller animals like chickens and rabbits, I'm really thinking of getting Hannah a rabbit, I had one when I was younger and she seemed really interested in them!


I was able to take Hannah on a couple of the rides like a mini toddler roller coaster and the carousel...she was a little hesitant at first but then she got the hang of it once it started moving and liked it a lot more...Savannah was quite content checking everything out from her stroller...she probably does have the best seat in the house!


 Finally we took a family ride on the Ferris Wheel...OMG! I hate these things but I did it for my family, I'm just not a fan on heights and with an almost 1 year old who won't sit still I was freaking out!  We had a great afternoon and evening as a family and it was really great to get out and enjoy the fair.

  2. We have a fair where I grew up called the National Peanut Festival, and I always looked forward to it every year. I live too far away to go now, but I'm sure they have similar events here in Seattle.

    I just have one little guy (he's 3), but I feel the same hesitation taking him out--stroller, extra clothes, snacks, etc. You've inspired me to get over myself and get out more. I gotta do it! It'll be fun, right?
