Growing up we always went to the Lamar Fair. Our school would start a few days earlier than normal and then let us out the Thursday and Friday of fair week. I thought it was so we could ride rides and stay out late at night, I know now it probably had more to do with those who were showing cattle or farm animals and very little to do with the students going out having a great time.
Anyways, so when I saw a few pictures of a friend and her little boy having so much fun at a Carnival, I had to ask where it was. Justin was already at his BBQ competition and the evening was shaping up to be fairly nice, we actually had some wind & one little mention of going to the carnival and getting cotton candy and the kids wouldn't stop talking about it. So off we went.
I wasn't sure what to expect but we certainly didn't have anything to lose because I knew that if all the boys got was Cotton Candy, they would have the best time ever---lucky for us the entire evening was filled with smiles, laughter & oh so much FUN! & I just had to make sure and document it all...
Keeping up with the boys proved to be a challenge, luckily they're good sports & happily ran around in circles again. & I think its safe to say that heading out to the carnival will become a yearly tradition, just like when I was growing up.
