Wilson County Fair

Toward the end of August, Jacob had his very first Wilson County Fair experience. He seems to have enjoyed himself, and still talks about the Ferris Wheel and the "crash and boom" of the cars at Demolition Derby. We tried to document most of his "firsts" at the fair, but we didn't get a picture of him having his first corndog or enjoying a snowcone. However, the pictures we did take, seem to capture the evening very well.

Jeff and Jacob getting close to the entrance...

The first thing we did when we got there was head to the Barrel races. Apparently, this was just the practice rounds, but Jacob still enjoyed watching the horses go around the barrels. We were able to be super close, which was fun!
A picture I got of Jacob at the barrel races...I promise...he WAS having fun! Ha!

Another shoulder ride on Daddy!

After the horse events, we went to the kids learning area. Here, Jacob learned to pump water (and play in it afterward)... pet some animals and ride a John Deer tricycle.

He also saw some chickens, and ducks, and baby chicks hatching from eggs!

He watched the pig races, and enjoyed laughing at the ducks and goats race as well.

Jacob is thinking, "Why are these people so excited about these races?"

Hilarious. I love that he's such a deep thinker!

Finally, we got a couple of tickets for the ferris wheel and Jacob rode for the first time!

A family picture on the Ferris Wheel! Yay!

Our view from the top...

After the Ferris Wheel we worked our way over to the stadiums to watch Demolition Derby. I thought Jacob would love this, because he always loves things to crash and boom, and he is especially into cars lately...but, he was a little scared with all the loud noises. Nevertheless, we stuck it out and he still refers to the "crash and boom cars." Hope we didn't traumatize him! Ha!

Overall, it was a fun night and lots of memories were made! Thanks for checking in with us! Have a blessed day!
