county fair -- mclain style:

waaaaaaay back in august the five youngest grandkids
met at grama dianne's house, posed for some pics .....


.... and took off for a day of adventures at the wright county fair!!


(some of the grandkids never got the sillies out of their systems)



the yearly cow-check-fence pics turned out cute ....


seeing the sheep was interesting and fun .....

so was feeding the goats that eat anything .....


..... and milking the not-real cow ....

the pony ride was SUPER fun (so far riding around and
around in a circle hasn't gotten old) .....


but this action shot was our favorite (i was going for a
nice picture of ella waving while on her horse -- but catching
the horse in front of her pooping, which we noticed when
we got our photos back, was a hilarious bonus) ....

my sweet pony-lovin' ella ~

my sweet pony-lovin' zoe ~

the camel was back, we found out he has definitely
never been to egypt, but he has been to texas ....






lauren got nibbled on by an elander
(at the exotic petting zoo) but didn't think it was funny
when i thought we should re-enact the scene
(i still think that would have been funny) .....

rollercoaster rides ....

the giant  slide (and first rides on a ferris wheel, that i didn't
get a picture of) ......

..... all added to the adventure .....

so did having a snack in the beer garden .....


nothing says FUN like a foot-long corn dog for five!! :)


good times -- we LOVE our county fair memories!!!
