Illinois State Fair

Checking out the baby farm animals at the Illinois State Farm

I said goodbye to my husband this week and got a plane to join my kids in the US at my in laws’ house. I am spending the rest of our summer visiting family in three different states before returning back home to England.  Today we went to the Illinois State Fair to try various foods, go on the rides, and check out  a relative’s show cow.  It was a long fun day with the boys and memories were made.

Family Fun Fair

Having fun at the Family Fun Fair

After picking the boys up from work we came home to do home work and rest before going out into town.  A family fun fair came for a few days and the boys have been excited about going to the fair since the posters went up.  We started with letting them go into plastic bubbles and walking on water.  We also rode the bumper cars, they rode a car ride, and the boys went down the slides numbers of time.  We had supper at the fair, which consisted of an unhealthy choice of chips and candy floss for dessert.  We had a really fun mummy and boys night out.
