Greater Baton Rouge State Fair

Last night we decided to take the kids to the state fair.  Kids under 48” get in free…Luke & Cameron barely were under it…so we only had to pay for the adults.  This was one of the first things you came to.  At first, we just thought it was a statue…but if you walked close to it, then he would reach out and scare you.  The kids were all scared…they didn’t want to walk past it.  That was Craig’s favorite part…it was really funny when he got the adults!

Then we went to the livestock area where we got to see a bunch of different animals.

I don’t know if Levi was scared or amazed by the lights on the rides.

All of the kids brought $5 from their piggy bank to spend…obviously Levi & Cameron used theirs to buy a light saber.

And of course, we had to get a funnel cake…we actually got 3 but they were so filling and we didn’t get a drink that we almost brought all of them home.

It was a good and short time at the fair.  We told the kids that if they want to ride more rides next year that they can save their money to buy a bracelet…and to save enough for Daddy to ride too since they won't be able ride by themselves!

All our fairs are over here. We only went to the Pumpkin Show, which is an interesting one... and hmm.. I never talked about that on my blog. I'll have to fix that.
