A Trip to the Fair

Today did not play out as planned, originally we had planned to head to Lookout Mountain for a day in the outdoors with our Sunday School Class. Instead, with the weather not looking to be great up that way we decided to spend the day as a family at the North Georgia State Fair.

I jumped on the fair's website first thing this morning and found that from 10AM - 11AM admission was free as were the mid-way rides. That saved our family over $60.

The kids love the fair ...

we enjoyed rides,

fair food,

seeing farm animals up close,

and trying out a TempurPedic Bed. The the last part was not exactly on our list of things we were looking forward to seeing at the fair but, my husband and I have been talking about getting one of these beds forever. The beds are super expensive but, it was the one bed that had been recommended to us due to my husband's psoriatic rheumatoid arthritis. Needless to say, we were sold within five minutes of trying out the bed (as were the kids) and we got an awesome deal due to a special they were running at the fair.

You just never know what you are going to find at the Fair.

looks like you had a great time at the fair. We never go to our state fair. Its usually during the summer when our temps get up into the 100's. We don't do well in heat.

It looks like you had an amazing time!

The bed picture cracks me up. Whenever we go to the Fair here in Minnesota we go to the DNR building (where they show educational movies in a dark room) and take a nap.

Blessings to you!
