first time fair

Photobucket
the fair for a child who has never been is like a huge land of colorful wonder.
his eyes grew bigger and bigger for each activity we did.
his brothers and sister was supposed to join us, but they had football, volleyball, and work.
so it was a day with damian:)
it was still really pretty fun.

the big tractors were a treat for both luis and ryan.

he was absolutely fascinated with the sling shot ride.
every single turn we made, he would stare at the slingshot and freak out how cool it was.
we made so many mini stops so he could watch the slingshot.

he was so excited to see the horses.
turns out he's scared of them.
he hadn't realized how big they were.
he would jump and hide behind ryan when their heads would pop out of their stables.
it was actually pretty funny.

he made friends with the baby cows and horses though.

he's going through a ninja phase, and was so excited when we found this ninja sword.
he went flipping, kicking, and hi-yahing through the whole fair.

we went through each booth to try samples, toys, and massages.

we had told him that we would wait til it was night time for rides and games.
it was worth the wait.
he was so excited all day long.
we called that part of the day, "the grand finale."
as it got darker and and ride lights got brighter, he became more excited.

we got there and he was overwhelmed with excitement.
he just stared and stared at all the rides.

he has always wanted to ride bumper cars, and guess what? he did!

remember the first time you ever went to the fair?
i think damian had fun for his first fair:)
he fell asleep in the car on the way home after riding three times on the starship ride.
i think ryan and i had more fun seeing damian have fun and get all excited.
can't wait for next year!
