WARNING: VERY photo-heavy post!
Just some pictures of the South Florida Fair (Fanless and I drove up to Lake Worth on Sunday to attend the fair with our friends, Kim and Brandon, and their family).
We walked in through the Yesteryear Village entrance, and were transported back in time. Yesteryear Village is this cool, year-round, history park located on the fairgrounds, and features actual buildings and artifacts from the 1850s through the 1950s. It includes a general store, a schoolhouse, a church, fire department, jailhouse, and several houses that have been transformed into museum buildings.
There’s also an area for kids to play in that features old-fashioned games, like ring toss and a bubble-making station.
And, of course, there were the requisite wooden cutout photos.
We spent a little time in Yesteryear Village checking out some of the buildings, like the backwoods “Deliverance” shack (complete with outhouse and wooden pony).
Eventually we made our way to the actual fair, where we got to check out the animals.
Mia took her first pony ride…
And her first ferris wheel ride, with Daddy and Uncle Fanless.
And, naturally, we had to stuff our faces with fair food.
But none of us were brave enough to try this.
Mia was the big winner at the Balloon Popping Game, where she scored an “Hola Gato” (Hello Kitty’s distant Mexican cousin).
And she loved the cowboy hat Uncle Fanless got her.
This little angel was so good. She slept through much of the day.
And, finally, my absolute favorite photos of the day.
