Gravitron & Amoxicillin

It's Fair Time!! It was a little weird not being in the valley to watch it all unfold, but on the positive side we didn't have to listen to our kids whine about wanting to go to the fair everyday! We decided to go out on Friday and even though the two younger boys both had ear infections, we didn't let that stop us, we simply packed up the amoxicillin in a "Pack-It" frozen lunch bag to keep it cool and off we went!
Dillon & Thayne ran wild at the fair this year! (notice my lack of pictures of Dillon) Darin gave them $20 and they quickly ran off to ride the rides! The Zipper was the favorite ride for them and 5 back spins was the most they ever got! Thayne wasn't the best riding buddy cause he gets sick on the round-up & gravitron so they basically rotated between the farriswheel & the zipper!!
Dax was a trooper! we stopped at Costco and bought a wagon (best investment ever) before we left! It was nice to be able to lay him down when he went to sleep and it was way easier to pull the wagon through the gravel than try and push a stroller, I'm not sure why we didn't get a wagon sooner it made the fair a little nicer, all we need is a canopy for shade!!
This year was a little tricky, Degan was ready to go on some of the bigger rides and Dusty was not so poor Dustin did a lot of waiting around for Degan to get off his rides. Dustin's favorite ride was the Sea Dragon! he would get off and jump right back on and have the same cheesy smile every time! another highlight for Dusty was his wooden sword with his name written in Chinese! Even though poor Dusty wasn't at 100% he still had a good time!
As soon as we got to the fair Degan ran into some of his friends and he was good to go! After he convinced Breckan that the Gravitron wasn't scary they were hooked and ended up riding it 12 times!! We some how got left in charge of Cannon & Breckan so they hung out with us for about 4 hours and Darin was nice enough to buy them all wooden swords with strict instructions to not hit their bros or sis's with them!! but when they started saying they were hungry we went and found their parents! As always we had a great time and can't wait til next year!
