I read to Avery's class Friday morning. They had spent the week talking about apples. Avery's teacher said I could bring one of Avery's books so I brought Ten Apples Up On Top. The kids seemed to like it, and listened quite intently even though they were all excited about the walk-a-thon, which took place right after the reading.
Avery and her friends were so excited, although they weren't exactly sure what was going on.
Rob and Ben came up for the walk-a-thon. This little girl really wanted to hold his hand, to which he eventually relented. It was cute although it didn't last long.
Avery ended up walking 20 laps, as marked on her shirt. That afternoon we picked her up a little early so we could beat the crowds to the fair. It was a beautiful day and going on a Friday afternoon turned out to be a good decision. Although I think the fair is always pretty busy, there were no massive crowds or long lines.
Ben wasn't tall enough to ride any of the rides (not even in the kiddie area). I was already prepared for this by a friend, so armed him with a corn dog while Avery rode her first ride.
He seemed to handle it ok. Inside the expo there were some exciting things for him though, such as climbing in an ambulance, fire truck, and police car.
Needless to say, that made him pretty darn happy.
Avery wanted to do the fun house (one with Rob and once without).
There was one more area with kid stuff so we finished out our trip there.
I think the kids had a good time and I definitely got my fried food fix for the year!
