State Fair 09

The day finally came ~ the day we went to the state fair or as Hanna knows it “The BIG Fair”. She remembered last year’s trip to the fair and I have literally been hearing about going back to fair since that day. I fear this year will be even worse.

She had a BLAST at the fair. She was well behaved, she listened, she had sooooo much fun, and it was a joy to spend the day with her and watch her experience all the delight of the fair.

I took lots of videos, which you can find on my youtube channel. (now that my video camera software is working properly I will be adding plenty more video ~ since it’s so easy. If you want to see new videos just subscribe to my channel and you’ll be notified when I add videos) I thought I would post some of the pics here since so everyone can see them.

While we were in the petting zoo the giraffe was peacefully sleeping. I’ve never seen a giraffe sleep with its neck wrapped around like this, it was so sweet.

Hanna LOVES horses. I’m not sure where it came from, but she truly loves horses. She has been talking about riding a horse at the fair for MONTHS. She was so excited to ride the pony. His name was Easy ~ now her rocking horse is named Easy too. 🙂

She and her Grandma have been talking about riding a camel for quite a while. I wasn’t sure she would really do it, but she did. She loved it. She was so much more outgoing and brave than she has ever been this year. She tried things I never expected her to follow through with this year.

The roller coaster was another thing I didn’t think she would actually do. She rode around about 3 or 4 times and seemed to be enjoying it. (There’s a video of the ride at Youtube), just after I turned off the video to grab the camera she got scared and started hanging on for dear life.  She came off the ride saying “I didn’t like that”, even now when I play the video she reiterates that fact. 🙂

Now ice cream on a stick I knew she’d have no problem with 🙂

There she is Future Farmer of a America. 🙂 She drove the big orange tractor and got the t shirt to prove it. She really enjoyed that, even though she needed a little help steering so she didn’t run into the fence. 🙂

That’s about it. It was a long LONG day, but we had so much fun.

    Your giraffe pic is SO tender, so touching! I’d love a high-res version if you wouldn’t mind. Giraffes are my “spirit guide”, if you will. They remind me as someone who spent many years in a wheelchair (my bicycle keeps me out of it) to stand tall in my spirit.

    What a precious little girl! I’m happy she enjoyed the fair…these will be lasting memories for her as she grows up. As for the bike on the bus in your other blog, well…I don’t know who Gentry is, but I recognize when someone has their priorities straight. 😉

    Montgomery Gentry is a country band, they were playing a concert that night at the fair. :)Here’s one of my favorite songs of theirs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGGCnnxYqBs I’m a small town girl. 😉

    I’m glad you’re feeling well enough to go.:) That looks like so much fun. My younger son loved the fair, my older one not so much.

    My favorite picture here is Hanna holding that taffy apple with the look of what!on her face. She sure is precious.:)
