The Kansas state fair is here for the week and since we had a good time there last year, we decided to make a trip there again this year. We knew Hollis would have more fun this time around, she’s such a little people-watcher like her mom. Our plan was to get up early Sunday and get there when they opened the gates and I’m so glad we did. We were able to navigate all the buildings before they got too crowded and the weather was cool and beautiful.
It was a sea of tractors, trailers and other farm equipment….Oh, and this fuel trailer Hollis is modeling with that Brian has at the show to sell.
I really enjoyed the buildings full of original artwork and photography, and cool, random things like this sculpture made of butter.
The smell of funnel cakes and fried everything were in the air. I was surrounded by ice cream, fried cheese curds, gyros, nachos, chili dogs, kettle corn and about a thousand other delicious things. I was so overwhelmed with my choices that all I ended up getting was corn dog and lemonade….uugghhh. I was kicking myself on the way home that I didn’t indulge in something I can’t get normally. Oh well, there is always next year!
Hollis is still not quite ready for rides by herself (next year she’ll probably be ready), but she was obsessed with this little train that went all around the fair. Luckily it was one I could ride with her so she patiently waited in line with me and we waved bye to daddy. She made train noises the whole time and loved waving at all the little kiddos we passed.
