Meet me at the Fair!

This year, at the 79th Annual 89er Days Carnival, Dallas was big enough to ride.
This is his first ride of the day, we took this while it was still being loaded, but when it started moving it was going a little too fast for pictures. He did fine until about the third time around, then started to get the really scared look on his face when he couldn't find us in the crowd.There wern't any straps to hold him on this one, so I went around with him, and he laughed the whole way.
When Josh got hungry, he ordered a Jumbo Corndog, and Dallas couldn't take his eyes off it. Josh let him have a taste, but he didn't like the mustard and wouldn't take another bite.
We squeezed into a martian spinner, mostly because Josh really wanted to go on it. We had fun spinning it around, but Dallas kept trying to stand up on the "table".
Dallas had started to get really antsy about sitting in the stroller, walking, being carried, so we knew he was getting tired. There were only a few rides that would allow him on, so we came back to the carousel for one last ride before going home. Josh hopped on this time, and Dallas giggled when it started. As he moved away, he turned around and waved at "bye-bye" at me.
The carnival was a lot of fun, and Dallas wore himself out running everywhere at once. He fell asleep in the car, and we all went to bed when we got home. It was a great family evening.

What a great day out! Looks like Dallas had a great time. His hair is so short, He doesn't look like a baby anymore:(

I love his new hair cut. He looks just like his Daddy!

that looks like so much fun. Wow. I didn't know there were carnivals in April. Most of ours are in the summer and into September.

That looks like a lot of fun. I don't think I've ever been to a carnival. I can only imagine how much fun it would be for a little boy! :)

How fun. Dallas looks like such a grown up little boy. Very cute. And it's always nice when you can wear your kids out and have them fall right to sleep when you want them to.

I agree with Mom that Dallas' new haircut makes him look older now, but I don't know that that's a bad thing... It looks like you guys had a blast at the fair. Steve always likes going to the fair, but I think his enjoyment is equally divided between watching Kellen enjoy the rides and being able to eat all the yummy fried foods that we don't have at home!
