GEMS go to the County Fair

The GEMS entered a quilt in the county fair this year.  Believe me... this was not my idea! Sewing those squares myself while watching sitcoms Helping the girls sew their squares was fairly brutal and only reinforced my insecurities about not being able to cut, sew or draw straight. But the quilt turned out great and it was really fun to go see it on display.  After we saw the quilt, we hit the fairway!  We ate fair food and rode ride after ride. Look how big PK1 is compared to me! How did I get such a grown up kid?

I am sorry, but the big slide is the best ride.

We stood by this pig and made a ton of Charlotte's Web jokes.  For instance, "That's SOME PIG"  "He's TERRIFIC."

This was the PKs first ride on the bumper cars.  They were TERRIBLE!  They kept getting stuck and the carnie guy had to come over and help them.  Finally he just rode around on the back of their car and steered for them.  They get that honest though, I hated the bumper cars.  Seriously?  Here, let me give you $3 to drive slow and get in 20 car accidents.
