As promised, here's the post about the family trip to the fair.
We ended up going on Saturday, October 10. It was fairly cold and we finally got our act together and got to the park and ride shuttle around 11:30. Here we are on the bus:
One of the first things we saw was an area for fishing, and the kids really wanted to try. Because the water was so cold the fish were really sluggish, so they didn't catch anything, but they had a good time trying.
After fishing, the kids were dying to ride one of the rides, and they chose this one:
I think they really enjoyed it (despite Ryan's serious face).
After that we wandered toward the kids' building and came across this neat display in the Made in Oklahoma building:
I took three pictures and pasted them together to make sure I got as much detail as I could. We think our pecans are the Squirrels' Delight ones.
In one of the animal buildings we came across a woman holing a bunny and I couldn't resist taking a picture:
The kids rode two more rides on the way out. One was a climbing thing:
And the other was a roller-coaster-type ride. Gillian loved every second of it, but Ryan was kind of touch and go judging from his expression. At the end he said he really like it and would definitely ride it again.
All in all it was a very pleasant time. There were tons of people coming in as we were leaving so we timed it just right!
