State Fair, Part 3 The Rides

Big Doin's here now! Look who finally exceeded 36 inches tall! Now I've been saying for a while that when Chris gets that Feeding Tube out and he's 36 inches tall, we're going to Disney World. Looks like our days are getting numbered!

Now State Fair rides are kind of a new animal to Eric and I. We NEVER went on them, until last year, mostly because we're too cheap. But last year, we went with friends, and they wanted too, and Chris flipping adored it. And so we sent him on rides this year.

First he wanted to ride the giant slide. When he sat down with Daddy, he freaked out.

But by the time he hit the bottom of the ramp, he was happier. Then he wanted to do it again, and wanted to ride more rides.

When riding this motorcycle, he sat in the back, and I swear he looked like a Low Rider. Thumbs Up, Baby.

You Spin me right round. baby, right round.....

Of course, there had to be dinosaurs. Eric saw a dino T-shirt the other day that Chris should have, "RAWR! is dinosaur for I Love You." Wish it came in his size.

While Chris rode rides, Sam enjoyed chilling in the shade, when we could find it.

Speaking of what Sam likes to do. He really appreciated the opportunity to get cool on the Ferris Wheel. Our first all family ride. However, no one was willing to move to get a group shot. So we did in phases.

Mommy and Sam.

Daddy and Chris.

On that note, it was a beautiful perfect state fair sort of day.

Sam is a cutie. Did he sleep at the fair? The lactation station is a great idea. How often does Sam eat now? Just curious! Andrew eats every 2.5 hours during the day!

If he's awake, he'll go anywhere from every 1-2 hours. I don't mind because he's sleeping 8-10 hours at night. At the fair, he did 3 times in 5 hours, fairly typical, pardon the pun. Sam slept ALOT during the fair, mostly every time we were outside, power naps mostly. Once we were in shade or indoors, which was often, he was awake and flirting!

I loved these fair stories! Isn't quality family time just the best when it's just the 4 of you?!?! I know those are some of my favorite moments. So are you used to calling yourself a family of four yet?
