The Story and Pictures of our Kids "Schlatter County Fair"??? The Did it ALL on their own.:)

The Schlatter County Fair???

Last Friday Evening the kids and Grace (Next Door Neighbor/Girls Best friend) were outside playing and they kept coming in "grabbing supplies" we knew they were up to something but they did not want us to come outside so we let them plan and do whatever it was that they were "up to"  

After an hour and a half or so they came back inside and gave us "Fast Passes" (for those of you who are not familiar with fast passes they are the passes you can get at Disney World and Disney Land allowing you to avoid the LONG lines at the most popular rides and walk right on through past all the lines to use your Fast Pass and hop right on.  You can get them by going and inserting your Disney Tickets in the Fast Pass machines and it spits you out tickets with certain times in the next 40 minutes to several hours later depending on the rides amount of fast passes already given out for the day then you just come back at that time and you walk right on the ride.         

So the kids Handed us "Fast Passes" and Tickets to "The Schlatter County Fair"  They planned, designed and executed the Fair all by themselves as the pictures below will show you.  It was a FUN evening at the Fair I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed our Evening away at the Fair!!!! :)

 Hello Mr. Ticket Man!!!
 This was taped on the Outside of the Garage letting us know where to get our tickets!
 COME and GET your TICKETS!!!
 Like every good Fair there was a Food Court
 Um with some interesting Snack Choices of um.....Food??
 And of Course there was Fresh Squeezed Lemonade
 (Watter with Lemon Juice in it :)

 They even thought to make a spot for the Fair Attenders to be able to sit and get out of the sun in the shade!!

 The Ball Toss Booth Tucker and Daddy spent most of their time here.

 The Frisbee Throwing Station
 The Weighing Booth
Need a Break grab a book and chill out for a moment or two.
 Feel/Pretend/use your imagination and guess that GOO Station.

 It wouldn't be a real Fair without the Bean bag Toss Booth.

 The Notes marked the spots where kid and then adults could stand for the Bean Bag Toss.

 And the Wild Rides there were (Stroller Rides that is :)
 If you were not up for a Stroller Ride there was the Wagon Ride station with BIG BAD animals inside the ride with you to add a little thrill!!
