Last night, we decided to check out the Wright County Fair. I had little to no desire to go last year (with a two week old and all) but really like fairs. We went late afternoon and man, were we glad we did. The fair is in Howard Lake, which is the next town west of Waverly, nice and close. When we pulled up, there was plenty of parking right across the road from the fair. When we left around 7pm, it was a ZOO! Note to future selves: go in the afternoon again!
I didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. The food vendors were varied and many. We got corn dogs, shave ice (which Jim said was AMAZING!), lemonade, won tons, corn on the cob and cheese curds. By the time we were getting ready to head out, the lines for food were ridiculous, though. We were a little disappointed with the number of kiddie rides. We would have gotten unlimited wrist bands, but there was only 4 or 5 rides for our kids to go on by themselves. Oh, well. I guess that saved us money in the end. Although daddy did do a few games with them, too!
Korri LOVED the horses...you're shocked, I'm sure. Finn actually really liked walking through the horse barns, too, and finding out what each horses name was! There was a petty zoo, which was pretty cool. Mac just chilled in the stroller, as long as he got his share of the food and drink!
The Bigs got a little squirrelly toward the end, so maybe a little earlier would be better (or make sure they nap before we go!). Overall, it was a lot of fun and I think we'd go back.
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
