So, yesterday the hubby and I took the kids to the county fair to enjoy the rides and some of the games. By the way the tickets at the fair are SO FREAKING EXPENSIVE. It’s like highway robbery. But we made the best of it and we all had a blast.
Two years ago we took the kids to Dirt Fest where they have a carnival and Ethyn went on this helicopter kid ride and he FREAKED out and cried the entire time. That’s when we knew he was afraid of heights (he gets that from me) and we needed to overcome it with time. So, we decided we would make the rides fun with the kids so that they wouldn’t be scared, especially Ethyn. So, we decided to try the Ferris wheel, so when we got on it we told Ethyn how cool it would be and we kept a smile on our faces the entire time. And when the ride started we would ohhh and ahhh so that Ethyn wouldn’t be scared. Him and Kaelyn had a complete blast. They had so much fun pointing out the fire trucks and the other stuff on the ground. We are so proud of Ethyn for being able to get up there and ride the Ferris Wheel, especially since it was really high and I was secretly freaking out on the inside.
This was the view from the top of the Ferris Wheel.
We also played some of the games, we played the one where you use this gun thing to point at this target and it shoots water. Well, we had the kids hold the buttons down and Trent and I aimed the gun so that it would be fair. Well, Kaelyn beat Ethyn, so she won a fish :). And because we wanted to keep it fair myself and Trent competed and he got a jump start and he beat me so when he won he let Ethyn pick out a stuffed animal and he chose a snake 🙂
We then had the kids go on one last ride since we only had 6 tickets left and we put them on the same kind of ride that Ethyn freaked out about 2 years ago. They had such a fun time, they absolutely loved it!
All in all it was a fabulous weekend spent with the family. But tomorrow starts another long week. There is a jump start Pre-K and Kindergarten program going on at Kaelyn’s school so both Ethyn and Kaelyn will be attending. It’s Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 11:45. The kids are going to love it. I am very excited for them, probably more excited then they are 🙂 It will be good for them to get out there and meet more kids. I really hope that Ethyn is good. Plus, it will allow me to get some things done during that time at home and also set up some appointments to see houses while they are at school. Found a couple of houses that are pretty perfect and definitely in our price range so I hope that we can get that set up soon. Just putting it all in His hands.
