Ben says that whenever I’m ready to skip out on the fair, he would be okay with it, but I just can’t do it yet. I like to keep our tradition going, even if it’s only for the photo booth. We’ve tried a little bit of fair food every year and it just isn’t that good to us. It probably is due to the fact that everything there is pretty much deep fried this and deep fried that, so I’ve given up my grand ideas of eating fair food. It looks better than it tastes, at least to us. The girls have fun riding rides, but with the three of them, it can get costly, so this year they only rode 2 rides, and Brave got one extra one because it was her birthday weekend (and we had tickets to finish up).

I love the view in that first picture so much that I captured it with my SLR and my iphone (see here). I’m so nerdy! And Glow was so upset that she couldn’t ride rides like her big sisters, but that picture of her looking through the bars is just adorable! That baby of mine is a heart melter for sure. She was all about the fair! It was definitely stimulation overload for her.

My favorite time to go to the fair is at night, but we will gladly go in the morning if it means we pay $3 versus $11 (on the weekends between 10-11am). So we went, we took photo booth pictures, watched one show, rode a couple rides and called it a day! Those few hours there were enough for my girls as evidenced by the frustrated face Glow had in the last picture (she was tired!). Nevertheless, I love how my girls always seem to have the grandest time even if we aren’t there very long and don’t do very much! I’m thankful that they’re easy going kiddos. OC Fair, Lord willing we see you again next year!

  • i understand what you mean about fair food. i live in the south, where the food is supposed to be spectacular. however, i’ve noticed that in recent years i am just so turned off by all the heavy deep fried food we have here. i’m going lighter & fresher now with my food choices. we just spent a few days in CO & i thought the food was really wonderful there!

  • your blog is too cute, my heart can hardly stand it!

      Yes! I know where that is!!! I’ve been to Prague and it the most gorgeous place I have ever been too (I even wrote a poem about its beauty while I there)!!! I would love to take Ben back there one day. I have good memories of dancing on the Charles Bridge at night just being silly with friends.

    Gorgeous family photos, really tell the story. Love that yu have your photo booth tradition. Fair looked wonderful, and know how expensive they are too, we don’t have as womderful fair like yours, here and yes the food has definitely gone down the tube, so we eat before we leave home and then just get a waffle with dream – my husband loves these and a tub of fairy floss – I love. Keeps the cost down and we have a limit on how much we are willing to spend as well as what rides my children are likely to have more fun on too. We manage about 1 – 2 hours and then head home. We don’t have price differences as far as I know. Blessings from Australia xx

    I love this! We had the exact same experience (minus two children) down to choosing the morning cheapo price over our favored nightly visit. If prices keep going up we might have to take out a loan for photo booth pictures next year. 🙂

  • LMAO, that last photo is SO cute and hilarious!
