A magical night at the fair

The county fair was in town the last week and a half. Since I was out of town last week, Mr. Potts & I took the munchkins this weekend.

And they had the best time. My nephew kept telling me that it was the best day he'd ever had in his WHOLE life (he'll be 4 in January, so he has tons to compare it to).

**On a side note, why is there no sarcastic font. Or a way to show how important things are to a kid?**

We went through a petting area and petted the animals. The kids loved it & Mr. Potts even got in on the petting and feeding action.

Pure happiness, I tell you!

Such a fuzzy llama.

We ate fair food because nothing is better than a corn dog & lemonade for dinner.

We rode fair rides.

The munchkins were thrilled and squealed & oohed & ahhed.

Mr. Potts even volunteered to ride the last ride of the night with them.

The fair was a success.

We also went to the Panthers' game yesterday afternoon. I won't bore you with the details of the game (it was sad), but I will tell you that at 90 + degrees, I swear I sweated off 5lbs yesterday.

Certainly not the highlight of our weekend. The kids and the fair take that spot!

What was the best part of your weekend?

Going to the fair with kids is the best time ever. Reminds you how innocent life used to be, doesn't it?
