The 50th State Fair seemed so much bigger when I was smaller. Larger than life. Almost Las Vegas-like! Kelly and I both have fond memories going with uncles, aunties, cousins, and friends when we were growing up. Since we’re a lot older now, the fair seems quite small these days, but still fun. Nothing like dropping loads of money of cheap stuffed animals, overpriced food, and expensive rides. But hey, it’s not like we do this all the time, right?
But, now that we have Ensen (soon to be 3-years-old) and Avery (6-weeks-old now) going to the State Fair has taken on a whole new meaning. It’s super fun all over again and to experience it through the emotions and excitement of your children are priceless. The family made the trip to Aloha Stadium last night for some fun and entertainment. But the main reason was to see Ensen’s favorite superhero Ironman! And while we found him, we also found out Little E is quite the adventure seeker. He rode a couple rides, including the “bigger kids” roller coaster (which he wasn’t too fond of).
It was a night we won’t soon forget and we created some great family memories. The 50th State Fair runs through the end of June so there’s plenty of time to get there. Here’s a few photos to recap our night.
