Foto Story Friday #173-county fair

Summer is coming to a close and it’s fair time again.  The fair was an event I looked forward to each year when I was a kid.  My oldest brother would always take us to the fair to ride the rides and see the animals.  Now that I’m a big kid, it has kinda lost its excitement….. it could be that our county fair is not quite on the level as the Missoula county fair, or maybe my kid eyes saw things differently…. either way, now my kids look forward to it each year.


Scott and Em wait on the carnie to get them strapped in and the ride going!


worth the wait!

hair raising experience

ready for a swinging good time?

Robby and his buddy are ready for a fling on the swings.   Robby made the classic bad choice of eating food and then riding rides!  He wanted sympathy from me but…. well I didn’t make him eat and ride so I was not very sympathetic!

here we go!

Off on another ride…. I’m not exactly sure what either of them was thinking in this photo 🙂

clowning around

We saw a clown.

5-legged race?

The line-up…. then they attempted to walk! 🙂

happy runners

Shantel and her friend took off running hand in hand….. see the guy in the background giving them a funny look?! 🙂

tractor kids

The kids couldn’t resist the tractors.  They did ask a group of old farmers if they could sit on them first.

Then a visit to the animals…

cute bunny


Right after this photo, the bunny took a little nibble and she dropped it quick!

not sure

Scott was not too sure about petting the animals in the petting area.

Scott's project

Em's project


We saw piggies,


cows and calves,

and horses!  We also saw some sheep, chicken, ducks, turkeys and geese, but I was busy chatting with friends and didn’t take any photos in those areas.

There was a free climbing wall and I had some takers…..

Em hits the buzzer

Em didn’t make it to the top the first time, but she did the second and third times!

Scott climbs

Scott tried twice and just couldn’t force himself to the top!

swings at dusk

It started to get dark and little legs tired so we headed for home and our beds.

    Looked like a good old-fashioned “fair”ly good time! I’m sure your kids will remember it with as much fondness as you remember yours! Love that Scott is always one to observe carefully before he commits!!! Too funny!
