Fun at the Fair

We took Morgan to the County Fair after work this evening. Morgan was a bit excited. We usually have to coax her to put her hands up to get stamped or wrist banded when we go places. As soon as shee saw that wrist band, her little hand was up in the booth before I could say a word.

The fair itself was quiet disappointing. Besides the rides and one small building of animals, there was nothing else there. Good thing the admission cost included unlimited rides. We sure got our money's worth out of that. I think Morgan rode every single ride she was big enough for except one - a big boat that swung back and forth. She said it was too high for her. Many rides she did twice - like the roller coaster. She was extremely disappointed that she couldn't ride the bumper cars yet.

We have one sneaky little girl. She was riding a boat ride that was in real water. I was watching her and could tell that she wanted to touch the water. The whole time she was keeping her eye on the guy running the ride, then she shifted to the other side of the boat so he couldn't see her hand. Next thing you know, plop into the water went her hand as quick as could be, with her eyes never leaving the guy. Tricky-tricky.

There was also a kids Mutton Bust'in competition that any kid could sign up for. Morgan really wanted to do this, that is until she saw the first couple of kids do it. For those who don't know, Mutton Bust'in is kids lying on the top of sheep and holding on for dear life as the sheep runs across a corral. She pretty much thought it was a crazy, why on earth would anyone do this, type thing.

As you can tell from the pictures, attendance wasn't exactly high tonight.
