Gwinnett County Fair

My kids and I took advantage of one of the discount wristband days at the Fair and went last Thursday. Wrist bands were $18 each unless you had an empty coke can with you at which point they were $15 each. Not ideal, but not too shabby either. They definitely took full advantage of being able to ride all the rides. We didn't make it to all of them, unfortunately. The crowd was pretty big and not everyone wanted to ride everything.

This was actually included in the wrist bands this year. Normally it isn't. Unfortunately, they've also changed the height requirements and my daughter wasn't tall enough. So she did the slide (above) while my son did the bungees.

These were called Hamster Balls. They load the child into a plastic ball which then sits on top of a pool of water maybe 2 ft deep. They then try to walk on water. Very funny to watch.

We met up with friends while we were there and my kids convinced one of the others to do the tilt-a-whirl with them. He kept his eyes closed the entire time.

At the end, I indulged my kids and got them a funnel cake. Due to cost ($6 ea)I made them share, but it's probably just as well. I'm not sure either was awake enough to fully indulge a whole one.
