The Reese Family frequents the fair and I must say the fair was a bit more fun when I was younger, it is exhausting when you try to cram in all the usual activities plus two children 3 and under.
This year Campbell and Parker both took in the sites and enjoyed every aspect of the fair. They love the animals but they are children so who could not love the GIANT slide and the Ferris wheel. All four of us did both and Matt and I had a very fun time going back to our youth for a few moments.Our family was sure to complete the Ag is Cool tour sponsored in part by the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation. We made some new urban friends along our barn tour and earned our FREE Velvet Ice Cream when our passport was complete.
Matt of course is at the fair almost every day for Ohio's Country Journal and I help with several events there plus we show sheep.I think our children will be able to give fair tours before they enter elementary school. Enjoy these photos of our family and what we participated in at the fair. If you did not make it to the State Fair this year you still have a chance to make it to the county fairs that are coming up and of course the 2012 Ohio State Fair.
Guys and Gals Lead. Campbell and Jane did wonderful.
What a cute showman.
I think there are a few queen in training in this photo. Queen Morgan is so good with the kids.
Parker milked Buckeye Bessie in the Nationwide Land and Living Exhibit.
