Kentucky State Fair 2014

Remember that time we tried to go to the county 4H fair? Well this past weekend we went to the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville and it was a bajillion times better. 


The kids saw all sorts of animals, cows, pigs, sheep, horses, ducks, chickens, a llama...and of course Ewan was the most excited about seeing a cow poop! He is such a boy, I swear... 

I was most excited about seeing all the veggies and the crafts. The Christmas trees are always my favorite. Oh! And the bagpipes! I got to torture Alan and my in-laws with listening to a local bagpipe corps. Makes me proud of my Scottish heritage   :-)


The kids walked through the exhibits and got all sorts of goodies. Cecily was cracking me up because she insisted on carrying all of hers, at the same time. 

Silly girl!

After seeing everything inside, we went out into the heat and let the kids play a few games. We didn't stay long outside though because it was HOT and everyone was tired. 


Ewan wanted to ride rides so badly though, next year kid!

  2. You should go! We live three hours away from where the Indiana State Fair is so we always go to the Kentucky one instead. It helps that my in-laws live in Louisville, where it's located too :-)

  3. looks like fun! I want to go to our state fair but it's too far away. Cecily got so big!

  4. The IN State Fair is three hours away so it would a really long day for us or we would have to get a hotel. The KY State Fair is two hours away plus Alan's parents live in Louisville so we're able to stay the night.

  9. Your kids are SO adorable! It looks like they had an awesome time! We don't get many fairs around here, but I'm all about one when it does show up. Ewan can have the cow poop, though, as I will not be fighting him for that fun fair exhibit! Also, bagpipes = awesome. When we went to Edinburgh, there would be people on the street playing bagpipes for money instead of guitars or whatever like we have here. So awesome!! (And yay for being Scottish!!)

  10. That looks like so much fun! I have never taken my family to a fair... seeing the pictures makes me think I should reconsider that decision. :-)

  11. You should! You're in the same boat as me, the Indiana State Fair is too far away to feasibly make a day trip out of it. Maybe Michigan?
