Off to an auspicious start

First horse, Fourth race. #backtoschool #firstday

We missed one bus.

Second horse, First race. #backtoschool

And then another.

Still, I'm calling it in our favor.

I think we're off to a pretty good start.

Weather or not ...

The forecast called for thunderstorms all day long.

Weather or not ...

We took our chances and went to the fair. Weather or not, here we come. ...

Getting the worst parking spot at fair has it's own reward!

Turns out getting the worst parking spot in the entire fair universe has its perks.


We picked our favorite contender at Cupcake Wars.

Student driver

A little girl I know, having reached the magical height of 48 inches (49.5 to be precise), got her Bumper Cars permit.

43" and ready to ride! #chathamfair

A little boy I know -- now measuring 43 inches (a full inch taller than the minimum) -- has graduated to the Big Kids' Rides.

Right before he went on the tiny tot rides. #stilllittle

Like the Flying Bobs! (OH YEAH!!!)


Though he still fits in his old favorites.


I didn't see a lot of sibling rivalry.

Magic Carpet Racers

Sometimes she came in first.


Sometimes he did.

Zero Gravity

But mostly, they stayed side by side for the whole ride.
