Labor Day Weekend

After spending most of the weekend up at camp for Family Camp, we decided to join the rest of the world at the Kittitas County Fair. Kyle loves it tolerates it occasionally. Sora was so excited that she even raided her own piggy bank to pay for her cotton candy herself. Luckily, her grandparents slipped her a little more money so she got to go on three rides too. I miss the ride prices back in Wisconsin - her three rides set her back over $10 while consuming less than 7 minutes of our time!

 We also looked at all the animals and in all the exhibitors buildings. Sora loved the horses and alpacas the best. She now wants to spin yarn on a spindle like the ladies at the fair. A fiber girl already!

 My favorite part of the fair is the Frontier Village. Sora politely listened to all the old people explain the buildings and seemed relatively interested. We skipped the candy store, but Sora didn't notice. Instead we got to see some cool ladies doing crazy stuff with axes. Good times.
Of course, there was a lot of food involved. Sora chose cotton candy, Kyle chose scones and coffee, and I chose chocolate covered strawberries and bananas and lemonade.
On the way back to the car, Sora was excited to pose in the girl at the local Montessori school.
This was right before we realized we lost her doll (pictured briefly above to the right of Sora's elbow with the dots on the leg). Sora was warned several times of the responsibilities of bringing her doll with her, so we were pleasantly surprised when she wasn't too upset over loosing it. Although it was a project that we did together last year and I think it actually meant more to me than to her since we sewed it together and picked out the fabric together and Sora decorated it herself... I guess that means we'll be doing another sewing project together soon!
