Another year...another fair.

Last Wednesday night we took our annual trip to the Del Mar Fair. Yes I know it is the San Diego County Fair now, but I refuse to call it that. It'll always be the Del Mar Fair to me.

The kids instantly fell in love with all the noise and rides. But we had some eating business to get down to before the ride and game fun began. After we were all nice and sick to our stomachs we walked over to see the animals. Fun times for mostly Dylan. The rest of use were totally nauseated, but what are you going to do.

Then we went over to the kiddie carnival area, where the games and rides are all geared towards kids. Dylan rode her first ever roller coaster while Justin watched from the side lines screaming "MOMMMMMMYYYYYYYY" the entire time.

Next it was Justin's turn for a ride, so I paired up with my mom and we took the kids on a train ride. Or how I will refer to it from here on out, "The Train Ride of Death."

It really was pretty funny to listen to him cry and scream for "DADDDDDYYYYYYY," the entire time.

The final kid ride of the evening went to Dylan and the carousel. The kid really has her princess wave down doesn't she?

I'd have to say the night was a success for all. Even though Bryan and I didn't win any prizes ourselves it's still great to take our kids to the place where our relationship began.

Hilarious! I see Justin is just one more satisfied and traumatized customer of the Train Ride of Death. Well, if that doesn't get him of the Thomas videos I don't know what will.

It looks like you guys had a great time. Dylan is a total carnival princess. Way to go on the roller coaster!

That carousel kind of freaks me out. It looks like it's going entirely too fast. Love the princess wave, though. She's got it down-pat.

good lord! i had the same experience with the train ride of death at the virginia state fair. lily screamed her lungs out and nearly clawed my eyes out trying to get OFF OFF OFF that thing. great pics though! LOVE the princess wave.

LOL!! That's adorable. That makes me want to go to Spring Fling or the fair or even just the little train at the zoo.

Oh how fun! They look like they are having a great time, look at Dylan on the roller coaster.

Christina said...

Aw, that's so sweet. Glad you have fun. I hate public events, but I've been thinking about taking the kids to the fair this year, I'm sure they'd love it.

That looks like so much fun! I agree with Alicia, the carousel is going way too fast for me. Your kids are so cute.
