The Fair

Sunday we went to the fair.  It was so much fun.  It was me, Brian, and the kids, with my mom, step-dad Jimmy, sister Kaitlyn, her boyfriend Andrew, and my nephew Kody.  The kids had so much fun, they love it when they are with their cousin too.

Mom and Jim pre-ordered wristband for the kids online.  So when we took the printouts for the kids to get the wristbands up on, Konnor started throwing a fit and crying because he didn't want it on.  Rhiannon copied, even though she already had hers on and was fine with it.  Both of them were screaming off the top of their lungs, people were staring, everything.  It was so bad and embarrassing.  They kept trying to take the bands off and saying they wanted to go home.  I was a very unhappy mom and wasn't going to let them waste the $22 each for the band, when I know they would have fun once they calmed down and got on some rides.  Which eventually happened.  It took about a hour and half to get Konnor happy again.  We walked around looking at different animals like a tiger, alligators, snakes, baby kangaroo, etc.  He liked the insects... especially the dead ones in the display frames.  Haha what every makes him happy.

After he was happy again, we took them to the rides and they didn't want to stop.  Some of the rides they are big enough to go by themselves, some of them they can go on as long as they have an adult.  Well of course I couldn't go on because I'm pregnant so Brian had to go on with them.  It was funny because he looked like a monster on some of the rides.  He wasn't exactly having fun on the kiddie rides either.  At the end, Konnor was crying because he didn't want to leave, he wanted to keep getting on the rides.  Go figure. Later when asked what their favorite part of the fair was, Konnor says winning his purple elephant.  And both of them say their favorite ride was the "boing, boing" - a ride that went around in circles and the car went up and down.
