The first time I went to the State Fair was when I was 16. Allen asked me after church one Sunday if I'd like to go with him. I had never been and I was excited to be asked out by him!! He was a hunko munko! Still is!
(Like the smock top? They were all the rage and I sewed several of them!)
This year, Jill and I took the girls on dollar day. When we got there, we took a picture of the spot we parked the car, just in case we forgot.
On Al's and my first date, we got totally lost at the end of the day.
They didn't have signs like this back then.
A guy with a golf cart drove us around for a long time until we found the car.
It was still a FUN date!!
Joy and laughter are gifts from the Lord!
The ticket lady suggested we take a picture of the girls so we could tell people the clothes they were wearing that day just in case we had to search. Better to be prepared than sorry.
We went to the petting zoo. You couldn't "pet" everything though.
Not this porcupine at any rate! I've never seen a live porcupine!
And then we came to the LOVE ride! The place Al gave me my first kiss - on the cheek.
The girls were all about exciting rides!
We met up again. Hannah and Sophia really liked the log ride at Branson so were excited there was one here too.
They got soaked!
We found a place for Claire to get some soaking fun too.
We took the skyline for fun.
Strollers weren't allowed on it so Jill said she would walk and meet us at the other side.
Sophie still had one token left and she chose to do this one ride.
Claire did NOT want to be done with the day.
But it was a school night and Jill and I were POOPED!
