Illinois State Fair

This past week we went to the State Fair. We had so much fun!

There were fire poles to slide down . . .

Then we went to see the Butter Cow! Isn't that cool? A lady carved this cow (and calf and skunks???) out of butter! She does it every year. I had heard about the butter cow before we moved to Illinois, but it was so fun to finally get to see it.

We played a little golf

We were the first people there from Macomb, so we got to put a pin on the map.

There were some beautiful flowers at one exhibit on wildflowers from Illinois

While Mommy looked at the flowers, Aiden and Anthony played some science games

Aiden begged to ride the rides. We weren't sure how he would do, but he was tall enough for some of the kiddie rides, so we let him go. This is his first ride. It went REALLY fast!!! He Loved it!!! He was screaming, "Weeeee!!!!"

Then, the helicopters . . . If you look carefully you'll see that Aiden is having the time of his life and Anthony, well, not so much.

Then, the cars

Then, the rollercoaster

Finally, Aiden endured the train for his little brother's sake

Anthony was very appreciative

Photobucket

Then, it was right back to the rollercoaster

Photobucket

"I just can't watch Mom! Tell me when he's off!"

Photobucket

He had his hands in the air, but we couldn't get a good picture of it. He's like his Mommy. :) I love rollercoasters!!! I'm so excited! I finally have someone to ride with me.

Photobucket

"What? You let him put his hands in the air??? This is crazy!!!!"
Photobucket

And back to the helicopter, alone this time

Photobucket

And one more car ride, a bug for Mommy

Photobucket

Finally, Daddy has gone for Fair Food!!!!
