Our Deep Fried Saturday

Josh's mom works at the State Fair every year and as an employee she gets some free tickets. That rocks for those of us who don't believe in paying for things.

Tommy and I were stoked to go to the fair on Saturday morning and it happened to be the PERFECTLY overcast and cool day for wandering around livestock and people.

Tommy rode in the stroller happily for about 20 minutes, then wanted to "POOOOOSH!" it.

Perhaps the best part of being escorted to the fair by an employee (and Grandma) is that she already knew all of the coolest stuff for my kid to do. Since my entire agenda for the fair was "cows and my first funnel cake" I was glad she had other good ideas.

Tommy's cousin Cayson (who he doesn't see nearly often enough) came with grandma and the two of them would've played with these magnet things in the science center all day long if we hadn't distracted them with other things.

Like the floating balls which both boys thought were hilarious.

There was also this awesome (free) kid's play area where Tommy and Cayson (and mom and grandma) were thoroughly entertained for the better part of an hour.

When The Australian brought out the kookaburra and all the kangaroos to look at, Tommy gladly watched. Because he's already smart enough to know that Australia is cool.

After lunch we headed out for my priorities at the fair.


Funnel Cake.

Listen kids. Cows still stink. Funnel cake does not. That's all I'm sayin'.

Fortunately for Tommy (and Little John - who didn't want Tommy to kick him anymore) Josh's baby brother Braden was there.

There are simply no words for how strong the bro-love is between these too. Braden loves being loved so much and Tommy simply can't get enough of the boy. But he's still a 16 year old boy.

Cami is ALWAYS there to get her own fill of The Love when Braden's attention is lost.

By the time we left we were appropriately exhausted and thoroughly satisfied.

It was the perfect day for The Fair.
