The Fair!

We went to the Manatee County Fair today! I love going to the fair! This was one of my first posts almost a year ago! I can't believe I have been doing this blogging thing for a year on the 22nd! Here are some of our pictures of the wonderful world of the fair...
This year they had pig racing. They picked people out of the crowd to cheer for a pig, if they happened to win, you got a ribbon. On the very last race, Benjamin won. He wanted to cheer for the "red" pig (his favorite color, right now).
The "racing pigs"
Warren with Ellie, the dancing pig.Looking at the chickens. Warren was scared but Benjamin LOVED them. The rabbits were on the other side. Warren liked them a little bit better.
Warren and I riding the carousel. He wasn't so sure about that, but still didn't want to leave.
Benjamin and Warren riding a little train.
Benjamin and I riding a kiddie roller coaster. He really liked it- I was worried. He was a little more daring after this one. I don't think we will have a problem at Disney next week.

Benjamin waiting for a ride.

Warren looking at cows.
We got elephant ears before we left. Tyler wanted powdered sugar on his. The wind was blowing quite a bit- as you can tell from the sugar ALL over the table! They were soooo yummy though!

It has been another long week. Not only are we trying to move into our new house; we are going to Disney on Monday to camp for the week. We are very excited to take the boys and spend time with friends, but it is a lot of preparation! We have rented an RV so it should be interesting. Will have to post more next weekend.

An RV... hmmm. Looks like a great time at the fair! I have to say that even though I've lived in the South all my life I have never heard of pig racing. Hannah and Kasey got their ears pierced today... I put pictures on the blog. Have fun!
