Life's not fair

Back in October we attended the Arkansas State Fair. Unfortunately, we went before all the animals are required to be there. In the future we will wait until later in fair week to attend. Our family isn't much on riding rides or playing carnival games.

That said, the kids did slide down the huge slide and I think they had a great time! Ben need a little help getting up the steps and Madisyn and Griffin were happy to hold his hand all the way down. :-)
One of our favorite parts of the fair is Farm Bureau exhibit. They have displays set up where kids can shell corn,

milk a cow,

and ride in a combine. Another favorite is the Game & Fish aquarium/trailer. It has lots of Arkansas native aquatic-life.

Of course, another bonus of the fair is the free stuff. Doesn't every family need 5 plastic fireman hats? ;-) Henry enjoyed a game of peek-a-boo with his.

The home crafts building had a beautiful fall display outside.

We met Mimi, Granddaddy, Raegen, Lynden and Aunt Robin at the fair. So the kids posed for a picture with the grandparents.

Granddaddy had a bucket load of grandkids.
