13 Photos I Took At The Kansas State Fair



1. The (almost) 1000 pound pumpkin. I want to know how one transports that to the Fair.

2. The infamous "leash," which is (not so) subtlely disguised as a monkey backpack. Yes, Georgia has a monkey on her back. Come on, that's funny!


3. Eric wanted to ride the elephants. Georgia went with him so he wouldn't look like a pedophile.


4. Shocker! We live in Kansas, and there's a Wizard of Oz reference. Imagine that!


5. Eli looks waaaay too happy milking that cow.


6. The children on a tractor. There is something wrong with the fact that my 5-year-old can reach the pedals.



7. Ummm . . . yeah.



8. Dude! How cute are my kids?!!



9. Eli enjoyed the entries in the scarecrow contest. I want to know why it looks like Spiderman is flipping me off.


10. Georgia, the focused equestrian.


11. Nothing says fun like spinning around in a hollowed out teddy bear.


12. Eli rides roller coasters, but was scared because the bees went up too high. WTF?


13. Eli was too nervous to sit in front with that crazy woman driver!

We have the EXACT same monkey backpack. That thing is a life saver. :)

My kids milked A REAL cow too. They loved it. They wanted to go back and do it again. *LOL*

It looks like you guys had a blast! Great pictures!! And to people who do not like the backpack--let them deal with losing their kids in a crowd and searching frantically. You know where your kids are and that they are safe.

Ha ha! Those are adorable! And hilarious! I love it that your husband didn't want to ride the elephants alone---I always want to go on the carousel, but have no kids anymore to ride with me. Tell him to enjoy it while he can!
