The State Fair

We went to the fair to consume large quantities of unhealthy food.

Even the sugar left on the plate after the 4 funnel cakes were gone was not safe.

Corn dogs and hot fries were consumed by all.

Sarah forgot that she didn't like to have her picture taken.

When we got to the big bins of candy we allowed each child to get all the candy that they could hold.

There were eight of us, that was a lot of candy.

We did see some animals but were disappointed that the petting area has become a lot less of a petting area.  It was more of a "see the animals behind the cage" type of thing.  The zoo would be better for that.

After some cotton candy the kids fell into a sugar induced coma for the ride home.

The day went well, the weather was great and we got there before the big crowds showed up. 
The little one didn't have a tantrum until we were driving home and she couldn't get her coat off. 
She fell asleep 5 minutes later. 

Sorry, can't show the other pictures I took.  I look forward to the day when I don't have to think about which pictures I can post.  Oh, and our teen told her SW yesterday that she wanted to be adopted.  Since her case is so new I wonder if that could happen....they move slowly here and I had told her that I didn't  know if they could get TPR and adoption before she turned 18.  The next year could be very interesting.

Have a good night, I am off to study.  I have not been a good student the last few weeks.


  1. Amazing fun family time. You amaze and inspire me! <3

  2. Hi Felicia,

    I stumbled across your blog a couple of days ago. Thanks so much for keeping a record of what you are doing! We have been considering fostering/adoption and I am inspired and excited by your family and the good your are doing! Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. I just wanted to let you know that I've been reading your blog for a few weeks now and it is so encouraging and REAL. We have been fostering since last March, and we now have 3 boys (in addition to our 3 bio girls) and it has been challenging to say the least. And I often feel like no one really knows what it's like because it's not the same as having all your own kids. So anyway, I have been searching for foster-mom blogs that I can read about the real stuff that they are going through, because I am too. Thanks for writing. I have only written on my blog a handful of times since getting the boys back in August, but I want to write more. I think it would be great for foster parents to support and encourage one another, so, thanks!

  4. Mmmmm! Funnel cakes! I don't even want to imagine how many carbs that is! But - mmmmmm!

  5. Welcome to all my new readers! I try to keep it real knowing that people really can't understand everything unless they live it. But, perhaps they can get a little glimpse.

    I consider funnel cake to have no carbs if you only eat it when the fair comes to town!
