Last night we went to the Utah State Fair. This past summer, there were various summer reading programs and the kids decided on one to earn free fair tickets. They each had to read 8 books and mail in the form. Lauren and Taylor each received a free ticket to the fair, a free drink and a free carnival ride. We saw the animals and all the 4-H stuff and then it was time to decide on ONE ride for each of them. Josh wouldn't go on anything without Taylor and Taylor didn't want to go on a baby ride. Luckily they both decided that Mario's Fun house would be, well fun. I guess it was. Lauren had to go on something all by herself. Since she learned she was a daredevil at Lagoon she wanted to go on something big. I'm always a little nervous about the old looking carnival rides but she chose one called Moby Dick. It goes around pretty fast. At first we could see the look of fear on her face, but then she decided she liked it. It was a good "once-a-year" experience for all of us. On the way home we stopped for treats. Josh wanted fries and wouldn't share with anyone and ate pretty much the whole thing.
