at the fair

A week or so ago we went to the Dixie Classic Fair for a couple of hours. We've had a really busy month so it was one of the fastest trips I've ever taken to fair before, but I'm still thankful I got to go. Hopeully next year we'll get to stay longer and enjoy it more. This was Julianna's first year of riding the rides. She had a blast and has asked to go back many times since.

We all got to ride together on the Ferris Wheel. It had been many years since I had been on it and it was nice to experience the awesome views from the top again.

We bought a book of tickets and let Julianna decide what she wanted to ride in the Kiddieland area. Of course, the first ride she picked was the motorcycle one. I'm not so sure she enjoyed it though because she kept a stoic look on her face the entire time and she was too afraid to take her hands off the handlebars to wave.

She also rode some airplanes and drove a truck full of other people's kids. She wanted to go down the big slide but she wasn't tall enough.

This ride was supposed to be a fire truck that went up in the air and around in circles vertically. Jules called it a red bus ride and Daddy got to go on it with her. If you look closely you can see her hand sticking out too wave out of the back of the truck.

We had a great time. I'll just make sure that next year I have enough time to see the big pumpkin and at least get a funnel cake.
