wow. when the south does state fairs, they mean business. this fair is HUGE. our little arlington fair could fit in a small corner of the nc state fair. i was in heaven. i really do love fairs. my inner kid comes out and i get excited for audrey to experience it all. finallyshe is at an age where she can go on some rides by herself and she really got into it after some convincing to go alone. the wiggle wurm was her first ride alone and probably her favorite.
after a couple rides it was quickly turning dark so we got some cotton candy and headed home.
of course, one trip to the fair wasn’t enough. we had to go again over the weekend to get in a few more rides. even though we went early on sunday morning, it was still super crowded. i thought the crowd was going to be small because of church, but i was so wrong. luckily most of the lines moved quickly and audrey was very patient. our friends joined us so audrey had a friend to ride some rides with!
