fair time!

A few weeks ago was library morning at the fair.  All the kids who participated in the reading program who read more than 8 hours got a free pass to the fair, and the library puts on a bunch of activities there for the kids.  This is the first summer that we went, and we had a great time!

There were lots of hands-on science exhibits for the kids to try.

This one they had to see which kind of milk made more bubbles.  Skim milk won!
We all thought it was cool that this horse was named Nemo, so we had to get a picture with him!

The most exciting thing we did there, I don't even have a picture of.  There were duck races at the fair.  There was a "track" set up with four lanes of water for the ducks to swim down, to see which one was the fastest.  Well, Kade got picked to go put a duck in the race.  All the kids had to have a parent help them, so Kade and I were in the duck race!  I got to hold a very wiggly duck for several minutes until all the ducks were ready and they blew the whistle.  Our duck was super fast at the beginning, got about 3/4 of the way down the track, and stopped.  So, we didn't win, but it was fun all the same!
One of the commercial vendors was selling nitrogen frozen ice cream.  I'd heard about it but never tried it.  So, we got some and it was so smooth and creamy.  Krew definitely approved!
