Our State Fair is a Great State Fair

Don't miss it, don't even be late.

Name that musical.

Anyways, it's a tradition for our family to attend the state fair and I was excited this year because I knew Lara would be way into everything- animals, food, entertainment... She might have been into the rides if we had gone, but we never do the rides.

Originally, Reed wasn't going to be able to take the time off of work to go with us to the fair. But he decided that it was his duty as a dad to take Lara fishing.

He's sure glad he came!

Another highlight for Lara was seeing Uncle Jonathan, who had spent the summer working at a scout camp. In fact, whenever I told her that we would be seeing Grandma Flute and the rest of the crew, she knew to tell me "Jonathan at work." She didn't believe me that we would actually see him the day of the fair.

I'm pretty proud of this next picture because I have been wanting to try a back carry with my wrap for a while. I needed Reed to help put Vivi on my back (not comfortable doing that by myself) and she loved it. She stayed in that carry for about an hour and fell asleep there too!

For the first time this year we watched the draft horse hitched team competition called the Governor's Cup. Pretty exciting, I think we'll go see it again next year. Lara loved to clap along with everyone else. And begged to stay and see more horsies. Alas, it was past bedtime so home we went.

All in all, it was a fun visit! Can't wait for next year. In tribute, a clip from the musical that I quoted in my title and opening post line. Not the title song (couldn't find it on YouTube) but one of the better known ones.

Awww!! It looks like you all had a blast! I'm so sad I missed the greatest state fair in the state this year! Also, I wanna go fishing with my dad! I'm glad that Reed was able to go to the fair with you.

I want to go to the fair! Oh, how I miss it! It looks like you had fun! I love Lara's hair! Long and curly!

Looks like you guys had fun!

I never did the moby wrap (wanted to try, just never got around to actually purchasing one!), but I'm a HUGE fan of the backpacks. I hate pushing a stroller through crowded areas, so the backpack is the perfect solution for us!
