A Day at the Fair

In lieu of a vacation this year, we are doing some fun things around our home.  So we went to the Oregon State Fair as one of our adventures around town.  We had a lot of fun.  We went to a magic show, a Lets Pretend Circus, and a petting zoo.  We at our $5 hot dogs and $6 cotton candy (which is totally worth the money).  We played carnival games and rode rides.

We bought tickets all at once because they were half price before 5 and we wanted to do most of the rides and games in the evening.  So we bought as many as we thought we would want to use that evening.  After we bought the tickets, we found out that you have to be 36 inches to ride most the rides, where online it just said two years old or older.  So, there were just a few of the kiddie rides that Emerson could go on.  He is like 35.5 inches currently, so just barely too short for the majority of the kiddie rides.  Needless to say, we bought way to many tickets, so Emerson just got to ride the rides over and over.  Jason did go on a couple of rides himself.  The first ride that he rode on he said is the first ride to ever make him remotely sick.  It made me sick just watching it go. 

Emerson loved all the rides that he was able to ride.  He rode each one like 5 times each.  I think that the workers knew him by the end...except they have to keep checking his height.  They didn't believe that he was tall enought even for the 34 inch tall rides.   I think that he was so cute on all the rides.

We had an awesome time at the fair.  I think that it is going to be a yearly activity from now on.
