NC State Fair 2008

Friday the whole family went to the NC State Fair. It was a little cold (considering the day before it was 88 degrees) but we had the best time.

We saw all of the animals (except for the chickens and ducks don't know where they were). For some odd reason my little girl was feeling very brave. She milked a cow! She said "mommy I squeezed her utters and milk came out! Isn't that neat" Thank goodness I am not still nursing or she might put the two together and who knows what would come out of her mouth!!

Then after seeing all the animals we wanted to see if she would ride any rides. What do you know my brave little girl was all about riding the carousal, the cars, the spinning swings and even rode the ladybug ride all by herself. I know this doesn't sound like a big deal but Lawson really hates crowds (much like her daddy) and if is too crowded she won't participate. Well, today we didn't have a problem. It was so much fun to see her laugh and smile on the rides.

Then as we were leaving we saw the pony ride- she had been talking about this all day but thought we would have to go home without a pony ride. Sure enough walking out we found the pony ride and she was the first in line to hand the women her money! She did it all by herself and loved every minute.

Now I am sure you are wondering what about Wes. Well, little man just sat back and enjoyed all the views. He never fussed one time!! What an awesome baby.

4 hours later it was getting a little misty & really cold so it was time to go home!! What fun and what great food!!

Yay for Lawson! She is becoming Miss. Independent! Of course she road the Lady Bug ride by herself (makes me proud)! What a fun day at the fair! What precious memories you made.
