The day at the fair

My Mom is here to soak up a little more grandbaby love this weekend. She and I decided to venture out to the fair for the day with three very excited little ones. This year was a little more complicated than the last time we went (3 years ago) because of the children's ages. The 8 year old wants to do the big rides. The 6 year old wants to do the preschool rides (he has a major fear of heights). And the 2 year old wants to do the preschool rides, but is only tall enough for the baby rides. This combination lead to children pointing and requesting all sorts of different things in different directions. We were determined to all stay together and enjoy the crisp, fall day as a whole. So they took turns. This required a little more walking...back and forth many times...from one area to another. But we didn't hear many complaints. I especially enjoyed seeing the boys ride with Lydie with the assurance that "we will take care of her". The fair is a marvelous way to usher in a beautiful season. If every season was autumn, we would never be at inside, or at home for that matter!
My favorite thing to do at the fair was the fun house. What was your favorite ride as a kid?
