Today we went to the great state fair of Oklahoma!!
It was interesting to say the least. There are so many types of people at the state fair. It’s a great place to sit back and people watch. I look forward to going at least once every year.
My husband on the other hand could care less if we ever went back again.
While we were there it made me think about the interesting life the people live while traveling state to state to set up rides and such. I think it would be a neat experience.
Will I be running off to join the circus? No…but maybe if I didn’t have kids!
How fun would it be to travel around with Jeremy…meeting new people…exploring new places. I bet they have the time of their life!!
I’m sure in ways, it’s a rough life. But it’s what you make it.
I like to imagine what it’d be like to live a unordinary life. I feel like we are pretty outside the box in a lot ways, but we are a pretty standard family living the life you’re ‘supposed’ to live at the same time. If I could only step outside that box I’m so afraid of, life would be so different.
Different as in good or bad?
I guess I’ll never know until I decide to make those changes.
I feel like I’m getting closer. Closer to breaking through that mold I was raised to believe is the right way.
Can you believe I got all this insight from the state fair? Who knew the fair was so enlightening.
Sometimes the strangest things just make you think…
We had a lot of fun today. We were only there for a few hours before the rain came in and ran us out!
Here’s a few pictures of Atticus.
I loved watching his face as he really let loose and enjoyed himself today.
He is a good boy.
See how cloudy it was! Maybe we should have picked a better day to go!
As I mentioned last night…we went to Frontier City today!
We had so much fun!
Frontier City was sold out today, so you can imagine how crowded it was. We didn’t get to ride as many rides as we’d hoped, but we still had a great time. Atticus isn’t much of a thrill seeker, so him and I sat and watched the others ride a few rides. As the boys were in the bath tonight I asked them what their favorite thing about today was. Bonus said “Water park!” Atticus said “Farris wheel!”
The water park is always a big hit with the kids. Today was a perfect day for it…It was so hot. Jeremy and I rode a few water slides, but there were so many kids running around that we decided it was best to hang out on the side lines today.
We spent a good 6 hours riding rides. Thank god it was not our running day! I seriously don’t know how I’m even awake right now. The heat is exhausting! I felt like no matter how much water I drank, it was never enough.
Looking forward to a good nights sleep, school with the boys, and running with Jeremy tomorrow.
Off to another great week! Enjoy your Monday everyone.
