We started with the livestock, or "the wildlife", as Ian kept referring to them.
Aven went on a pony ride. It was one of those sad contraptions where the ponies walk around in a circle all day but I'm sure that in her mind she was riding Rainbow Dash through the clouds.
|C'mon everypony! Let's go for a ride!|
Ian took the girls through the fun house. It looked old and sad but Aven thought it was stupendous. It's a good thing kids see things through the filter of childhood.
|In the crazy-spinny-tube.|
The great part of being at the fair in the rain was that we pretty much had the rides to ourselves. The down-side was that the bumper cars aren't much fun if you have them to yourself.
|Aven gets her socks soaked in the bounce house.|
|Etta was too small to go into the bounce house, but she still had fun bouncing on the outside.|
Etta and I got tired of watching Ian and Aven have all the fun on the rides so we ditched them and had ourselves some funnel cake and lemonade. We also found what is arguably the coolest place in the fairgrounds; a building full of toys and hands-on science experiments.
|Look at that happy face. She REALLY needed some play time.|
