Oh Templeton the rat, thank you for your fair song in Charlotte's Web because it will forever pop in my head when I hear the word "fair!"
The Champlain Valley Fair comes to Vermont the week before labor day. We drive by the fairgrounds many times a week and Tan always talks about seeing the "piggies" run at the fair. I loaded the kids in the jogging stroller, threw on my running clothes, and ran the 1.5 miles to the fair. Instead of paying $10 for admission, I took advantage of the lunch deal and went between 12-2 for free. Sweet!
We cheered on the cute little racing pigs (my favorite part of the fair!)
Tan got to drive a firetruck all by himself. He is WAY into firetrucks and firemen right now so he was in HEAVEN!
(Having fun is serious business for the Tanman.)
We saw lots of cute little animals in the Old MacDonald barn.
I always feel so overwhelmed trying to make a decision about
what to eat at the fair. If I'm going to spend money, it needs to be worth it! Well, I went cheap and got something for Tan and I to share instead of buying both of us something a
nd doubling the cost. We had fried dough nuggets. Very fairish. I really wanted the onion rings but my super picky 2 year old would never eat those!
Kenz enjoyed the fair while loungin' in the stroller. She got really excited when she saw the animals, especially the ones that moved a lot!
Isn't she just darling! I adore my little kenzie koo!
We also saw a juggling family, which Tan somehow remembered from last year without me reminding him. And on my run back home, I popped into a store and found a way cute vase to go on our new kitchen table for $1. Love deals like that!
We'll see ya next year, fair! Tanner will be talking about you everytime we drive by the fairgrounds until you come back again!
