LA County Fair

While in California, we decided to go to the LA County Fair. It was only a dollar if you got in before a certain time. Well, we got in line in time, but so did everyone else. By the time we got to the ticket counter, it was a solid five or ten minutes after the deadline, but they still gave us our tickets for a dollar.

Sometimes when I want Caleb to look at the camera, I'll ask "Where's Mommy?" It gets him to look most the time, but it also gets him to point.

Caleb wasn't big on walking while we were there. And apparently we parked on the wrong side of the fair. By the time we got to the other end, we were already exhausted and we hadn't even done or seen anything yet.

I voted to take the kids on some rides (since we had originally wanted to go to an amusement park, but this was way cheaper). Caleb and Agnes were tall enough to go on the 36" rides, which greatly limited our choices. Caleb really wanted to ride the train, so we started with that. Except, once we got both of them onto the train, Caleb freaked out and wanted back off. So Nana had to ride with them.

Next they rode the airplanes. Caleb was really excited about the planes. We were worried that he would want someone to ride with him. But he found a hair thing in his plane and that distracted him till lift off. Then he was having too much fun flying.

Agnes and I went on the teacups together.

Caleb didn't want to ride with us. He got distracted by the basketball carnival game and the prizes you could win.

I sat down for a moment to recuperate after the teacups. Next thing I know, Nana's put the kiddos on a roller coaster. Without having to ride with them!

They loved the roller coaster so much, they had to go on it again.

I love how little they look in this last shot, so I had to include it. Amazing how we started the rides with the slowest one and Caleb was terrified, but ended the day with the fastest ride and he absolutely loved it.

That's so fun. I just love love seeing the pictures of the cousins having fun together. Agnes is beautiful. Love the pictures of your mom. She looks great, and so happy. But she always has looked that way to me. Thanks for sharing. Caleb is so cute. And getting so big. Thanks for sharing.
