We hit the State Fair last night, Okie Tourist style, with stroller and bags and all the things it seems to take to make a family outing complete.
We tried to do it on the cheap, although we spent $21 on corndogs, lemonade and chicken-on-a-stick to feed our family of 5. Not bad. Of course, some of our people are still very small. Your family might require more than a $3 corn dog for dinner. Alternately, your family might be more vocal about their demands for a more filling meal. Ours are still pretty distractable.
We were at the fair for about five hours, and we probably didn’t do a third of all we would have liked to. We’re going back on Wednesday (our oldest two kids are performing at the bandshell) and so we have plans to hit a few more things then.
Here’s what we did, what we didn’t do, and what we’re planning to do.
