We had a toasty but great day at the fair yesterday. We have managed to avoid the fair for nearly 20 years of marriage, but when your daughter has a chance to dance there you have to go. She did a great job dancing and we had a nice time after with Hailey too! We realized it was both kids first trip to a State Fair! So even though we were all sweating it was a lot of fun.
The highlight for Athena though was probably when she saw Ms. Champ in the audience. She had no idea she was coming to see her dance.
It was really hot in the tent behind the stage that the girls had to change in. At one point when she came back for a costume change she told me "I am so hot and sweaty, I don't know if I even want to stay at the fair!" When it was all done though she had changed her mind.
My goal for the day was to have fry bread. So after she danced we headed to the food carts. The girls all had fry bread, but Shawn was a little more adventurous and decided on the Krispy Kreame doughnut burger! He claims his heart only stopped twice. We also shared a deep fired Snickers, not impressed. And of course at the end of the day even though we had spent about $100 Athena was still a tad upsett aht she didn't leave with a giant, stuffed, crappy rip off of some cartoon character. What are you gonna do, it's not a day at the fair without a little disappointment right?
