The Fair.

A couple weeks ago we took the kiddos to the State Fair {more like 3 weeks ago}. Every year we go with our good friends {surprisingly they still like hang out with us and our two crazies}, it's one of our many "traditions" that we do with them. I know they love the boys and just can't get enough of them.
I love going just to have a BIG FAT corn dog, beer {and it was a huge Sierra Nevada, the lady, poured the wrong size and somehow I managed to finish it all} and some kettle corn.
And I love seeing the boys' reactions to everything. They were in awe when we first got there, some serious people watching was going on and it started the minute we rolled through the gates. 

{walking towards the gate.....we had to park like a mile away}

Cameron's favorite part of the fair would have to be getting a Monster Truck ride in Airborne Ranger and watching the motorbikes. He started asking about them the minute we got there and didn't stop asking or talking about them until he passed out in the stroller on the way back to the car at the end of the night. He was smiling from ear to ear when the motorbikes started their show. He was so excited. I love seeing him get so happy and excited about something, it's so cute. After the riders were all done doing their jumps and flips they drove around and gave hi-fives to the people standing around the fence watching. Cameron got a couple hi-fives and one guy missed so he drove back around and stopped and gave him a "pound" {or fist bump....we call it a pound}. He thought that was so cool.

After the motorbikes it was on to the Monster Truck ride. They have a Monster Truck that gives rides. It has seats in the back and drives around in circles for a few minutes. Ryan and Jerry {that's our friend} went with Cameron. The driver was asking the kids what their favorite Monster Truck was and Cameron was the only one who responded....he said, "Ironman". He loved it and thought it was super cool. He did say he got a little scared when he turned the corner but I was proud he didn't freak out or cry because that's what he usually does.

At the end of the night they have fireworks. On our way back to the car we found a good place to stop and watch, by this time poor Cameron was already passed out and missed it. We tried so hard to wake him up but he was OUT. After the fireworks we walked back by the Monster Truck because he wanted to see it one more time and he wouldn't wake up for that either. He was exhausted and nothing was going to wake him up.

{This is Cameron passed out just before the fireworks. Easton was going crazy trying to get out}

The motorbikes and Monster Trucks were the highlight of the night. Other than that we didn't do much else. Walked around the exhibits in the nice cool air conditioned buildings. It was only suppose to be like in the high 80's but on the asphalt it felt like 100. We watched a little horse show and took the kids to see some big bug exhibit {didn't get any pictures of that....way too many people}.

{And the Family picture, inside the exhibits where it was cool. I believe this was one the county exhibits}

We are already looking forward to next year. Cameron is already asking to go see the Motorbikes and Monster truck again. Monster Jam comes every January so we will take both the boys to that. It was a great day spent with great friends eating super yummy food.
