South Florida Fair

This post is just here say…I didn’t actually get to go to the fair, but I wanted to write a short blurb about their day anyway.

The fair has been going on for a couple of weeks…it started on January 15th. We told the kids we would go, we just didn’t know when. At night, the Ferris Wheel and the fair’s version of The Tower of Terror were visible from Hailey’s window, we are that close to the fairgrounds. Pure torture for the kids. They have been asking us almost every day when we were gonna go, so much that it was really becoming annoying. We’ve just had too much going on. Anyway, Karl and I had finally decided we were going to go yesterday afternoon. Of course, I ended up not feeling well around lunch time and was unable to go. Emma and I stayed home while ‘hero’ Daddy saved the day and took the three older kids.

Apparently upon arrival they watched an alligator show. Of course there’s an alligator show at a fair in Florida! I was surprised but shouldn’t have been…Hailey had taken her video camera and recorded some of the show, so I’ll get to at least see part of that. They tell me there was a baby albino alligator…only 90 known in existence in the world, so pretty special. Also, a girl from the audience named Molly got to be part of the show…she sat on the alligator’s back while one of the performers held it’s mouth shut. The kids seemed pretty amazed by all the things they saw during the performance, so I’m glad they got to attend. The rest of the afternoon was spend on the rides, eating pizza and funnel cake, and just laughing and hanging out together. They got home around 7 last night, had dinner and went to bed. Their poor feet and legs were so tired….and they all (including Emma) slept until about 8:30 this morning so that was a bonus! Can’t wait ’til the next one…maybe I’ll get to go.
