PHOTOS: South Carolina State Fair

Last year was my first trip to the South Carolina State Fair in 18 years. I predicted that it wouldn't be that much longer until my next time.

This past Saturday, I proved myself right.

We spent about 5 hours at the fair, and had another fun and not-to-expensive time, due to:
  • Free admission (again, due to our kids being 4-H members), 
  • Buy-one-get-one-free rides until 1PM,
  • Being with grandparents. We got rid of allowed Elijah to spend the weekend with them, too.
  • Completely-unhealthy lunch and snacks. The best was the steak quesadilla from the booth run by the local restaurant San Jose's.


Here are 10 more photo memories:

On the Crazy Mouse. After Hannah screaming, "I don't want to do this!" 12 seconds into the ride, she enjoyed it.

After getting off the Tilt-a-Whirl, Sender's first words were, "I hated it."

Climbing up the Fun Slide. Elijah won the race down.

The kids helped hold the flag as it was being raised.

Sender and I followed behind.

Joanna brought some artwork by kids from Allendale. Here's one piece by a kindergarten student.

The hat Hannah sowed won 1st place!

Somehow, all three of the ceramic plates our kids made won 2nd place. Tie?

Can I convince my kids to not go next year?
