Family Fun At The Fair

We'll about 2 1/2 weeks ago we loaded up and headed across the mountain to the fair. The Western North Carolina fair used to be this little no nothing fair.. but over the years it has grown to be a very enjoyable fair. My kids haven't gotten to go for 3 years, ever since we moved here to east Tennessee. The fair here is pretty much worthless compared to back home. Thought I would share some pics of our time there. We had to visit all the booths of course just so we can get all the freebies! Lots of pencils, paper, new testaments, and wipes.

They just had to touch that there snake in the smokey the bear tent!

This handsome fellow happens to be my baby brother! He is a full-time fireman/paramedic and works the fair every year. (He's also a God called preacher I might add!) We enjoyed getting to see him at the fair.

Here he is with 4 of our kids and one extra (the littlest is a friend of ours youngin)

He is gettin ready to head back to work

The boys havin fun on the rides

Pumpkin watchin all the fun

These are some sweet friends of my girls, they were tickled to see them at the fair

My 3rd daughter loves the bumper cars

Pumpkin and my oldest just finished the flying elephant ride

Pumpkin wasn't too sure of the caterpillar ride

Our friends boy was feeding a Nigerian Dwarf baby (these are the goats we used to have and will again one day soon!)

Wait.. I spotted this behind them... I have decided I need this grocery buggy to go shopping with, it even has a motor and drives!

Dear Carrie,
I just love all the pic's, but my fav of the day has to be the GIANT shopping cart. I would just like to try to fill one up some time so that my pantry stock pile would finally be finished, LOL. It looks like y'all all had a wonderful time. Nothin' like good, old-fashioned fun at the county fair.
Love & prayers,
