I have been a bit burned out lately. Too much work and not enough fun! Friday I was pretty tired - and the boys were asking for a vacation. So we dropped everything, found a hotel room in town, packed up and headed out for a one night getaway.
After checking in, we first went to the pool.
We found a new park to play in.
We walked to a restaurant for dinner.
And at 6PM we decided - hey, lets go to the county fair. So we got ready and headed over.
It was actually a great time to go, as it was cooling down and not too crowded. We ventured into the carnival part for a moment to pick up some cotton candy but then we went to see the animals. The county fair is all about the kids showing their animals. We met lots of kids of all ages - all so nice and willing to chat with the boys, talk about their animals, and let the boys touch, snuggle and visit. We visited horses, goats, pigs, chickens, rabbits, llamas, sheep...we were there at a good time too, as many animals were being fed dinner, kids were camped out in the buildings near their animals, and many larger animals (cows, horses) were getting cool showers or out walking around with their owners. I was too busy conversing with each animal we visited to take many photos. ;)
Leaving for 24 hours means that there was a lot of catching up to do today, but it was worth it!
