My Sunday Blessings

Yesterday Rachel's family and ours went to the state fair in Augusta! Thomas scored us some tickets from MWR (Army's Morale, Welfare and Recreation) for FREE admission and FREE unlimited rides!!!! Each ticket was worth $22!!! It was tons of fun!!
Bella got to pet a cow for the first time!
She loved it!
Riding in her first bumper car!

Flower prize Bella won!
She's Army Strong!!!
She was SOOO PROUD of it too!
Yummy fries! English style with vinegar and salt!
Riding with Daddy!
"big kid" swing ride!
She loved it!!!!
Jilli and Bella
Mommy and Bella on the Ferris wheel

We went on tons of rides and stuff but my battery pooped out. Even the SECOND one I brought so we'd have tons of pictures. *sigh* Oh well, it was fabulous! And we brought home funnel cake and cotton candy!!!

I saw this delightful video on Dawn's blog and had to pass it along!!

Ahhh the fair is so fun! Funnel cakes and cotton candy - YUM! I think the food is the best part of the fair for me - all the yummy junk (ha ha) once a year.
Looks like Bella enjoyed everything!

What awesome fun! Time with the family is the best, no matter what you do!

I saw that video about Dog and God on someone's site and it is great.

Looks like it was a beautiful day for a fair and everyone had a great time. I don't think I'd like to ride that "bus goes round and round" ride. LOL

The God and Dog video was really nice. I'd never seen it before. I have some of Wendy Francisco's music in my files. Thanks for posting the video.

Have a good day!

I love funnel cake!

Ok, so when did she get big enough to be going on the rides all by herself and have pictures with her friends going on the rides with her? That's crazy! So much fun. She's growing up really quickly!

Christina said...

You had me at funnel cakes LOL, Looks like you guys had a BLAST!

Intense Guy said...

Awww! That looks like it was so much fun!

I'm glad you got all the pictures you did get!

Aleta said...

Grand Pooba said...

Look at Bella's hair! It is getting so long! How fun, I love the fair! I rode that little train ride with my nephew over and over!

Janelle said...

It's so much fun to watch the kids enjoying every minute of the rides, games, etc...and for it all to be free is even better!!
Looks like the weather is beautiful there!
