....and a FAIR price for the FAIR!
Thanks to Grandpa Jay, we got in totally FREE (plus 4 ride tickets & parking - SCORE)!
Which left us with some money to splurge on our favorite FAIR treats:
chili cheese fries
hand dipped corn dogs
cotton candy (or hotten candy, as jack thinks it's called)
and funnel cakes
Yes...we like to eat. And judging by the size of other fair goers, so do they!
In my opinion, one of the best things about the fair is people watching. We found a quiet corner to sit and eat our FAIR fare, and loved to watch all folks of all kinds. And by ALL kinds, I truly mean, ALL kinds. (see last picture)
Lucy ate every last inch of her footlong dog. This girl doesn't waste a thing!
One of the highlights was watching bungee jumper after bungee jumper take the plunge! Would you ever do it? I wouldn't! It made my insides quiver just watching!
We let each of the kids (and our two nieces) choose one ride each. Lucy chose this spinning swing. I was nervous because she was BARELY tall enough to ride without an adult and I didn't think she'd do it alone, but she did and she was beaming from ear to ear.
She looked like such a big girl. I was so proud of her!
Jack insisted upon this jungle gym instead of a ride.
He was also cute. He got a bit nervous up on the high swinging bridge, but did well under the pressure of 3 older boys riding his tail to get across.
He's 4 going on 5, but is as big as a 7 year old.
Here's Chloe and Yasmin on the extreme ferris wheel.
Jack and Lucy LOVED watching them from below! They LOVE their cousins!
Then there was this free attraction.
We told the kids it was the real life Rapunzel. I love when we can save money like that!
Now we don't even have to go to Disneyland and stand in line for 2 hours to see the real thing!
