Today we went to the fair. I super love the fair, except for the part where as a child, it always signaled the end of summer. I do not like that. What I do like, of course, is the food. Sadly, I made a rookie mistake this year in scheduling a dentist appointment at nine this morning. For whatever insane reason, possibly because he hates me, my dentist used so much novacaine that the entire left side of my face (seriously, including my ear) was numb. Although this somehow decreased the intensity of my fair food debauchery, I still enjoyed a healthy, balanced lunch of fried cheese curds, corn dogs, and a root beer float.
The boys each got to play two games. The games with guaranteed wins, of course. This fish game was so ridiculous that Shane and I finally had to help them win, otherwise we would have spent the entire day. We spent $5 to win those cheap blow up monkeys, but watching Tommy hug his when the guy handed it to him was so, so worth it.
This is the first year that we let Luke ride anything other than the carousel (yes, I know carnival rides are unsafe, email me for further information on where to send my worst mother of the year card, blah blah blah). His excitement was so sweet.
His little brother, though, was indignant at not being able to ride the same rides as Luke. Despite the attempt at pacifying him with a SnoCone, he spent most of his time in the stroller yelling at us.
Eventually, blissfully, he let go of his anger and fell asleep still clutching the ball he won.
No food pictures because I was kind of too busy eating to photograph. Trust me, it was delicious.
