Last night, we ventured out to the Arizona State Fair. I had found "things to do" in Phoenix and was so excited to find that this fair was running - so we all voted *sort of* and decided this would be a fun thing to do with the kids.
The best part? Mattias. Oh my WORD.
We got him a "day pass" wrist band which allowed him to go on as many rides as he wanted and he went for it! He started off with the Giant Slide, which he had gone on at our own city's Fair. So that wasn't a big surprise. Then, he went on the Bumper Cars ... again, not a big surprise since that was his favourite ride at Disneyland this past spring. But what WAS amazing was how he started braving bigger, faster, spinnier rides ... all with jumping up and down and laughing.
He loved the kid's rollercoaster. There were 3 of them - all "scary" in their own way. And he just LOVED them ... my husband was equally thrilled with Mattias' new sense of adventure.
The boys ate the Fair food - which was greesey, sugary and basically really bad for you - and both stayed up WAY past their bedtime. Which ended up being too much for Tias ... he threw up today, and spent most of his time on the couch - napping on and off. *smile*.
Poor kid ... partied just a little too hard.
Tomorrow? Well, we're packing up and heading home - so sad to leave. But hey - we're off to Miami & the Carribean next week ... but that's another story.
Here are some pics of our time at the Fair...
