The Fair

My friend, Joanne, gave us 4 passes to the fair plus a free parking pass.

I was excited to see the animals.

We brought $20 and that was it. We don't have money to be spending on things like the Fair.

The obligatory photo by the photo booth.


After we looked at the animals, we stopped so Trent could buy some funnel cake with his own money.

Kat wanted cotton candy so we bought her that.

We walked around for awhile looking at rides that the kids may want to ride.


The finally settled on something called the Wave Rave. Or something like that.

It cost us the last $15.00 for them to take this ride.


But they enjoyed it. They really did. And they are the best kids because I said that I was sorry that we couldn't afford to get them another ride and they both said,

"That's OK, Mom! We really had a lot of fun and enjoyed it."

We had 6 (worthless) tickets left on our card so we gave them to a mom with 3 young boys and then we left.

It was nice. For a few minutes I forgot about our issues and I was just in the moment of watching my kids have fun. It's something we haven't had in awhile.

Thank you, Joanne!

Heather, you're an awesome Mom with equally as awesome kids. I know how you can feel really bad about "not being able to do certain things." I've been there so many times. The kids understand, they really do. This phase of your life is will be one of the building blocks that is building their life right now. They will thank you for it. I could just keep rambling and rambling, but I stop here. I'm pretty certain you know what I mean. Love you GF!
