We surprised the kids with an afternoon trip to the county fair - and we were all surprised when it started to rain almost as soon as we walked through the gates. I'm usually on top of the weather, but this storm snuck up on us. Luckily we had dressed warm enough and had a couple umbrellas in the car, despite Mother Nature's attempt to drown us out. We had a good time watching a seal show and a small circus of imagination. The kids enjoyed the farm animals and magic distortion mirrors.
At one point while we were waiting for the pouring rain to stop, we ducked into a tent and listened to a live band. The kids were hopped up on kettle corn and were dancing to the music:
We ended the afternoon with the demolition derby. The kids were so enthralled, they just could not believe people were crashing their cars on purpose. For the last week whenever we see a car that has even the slightest dent on it they both gleefully exclaim, "That car belongs in the demolition derby!"
