Richardson County Fair
My friend from high school - Jennifer Teeter - and her girls came to Plattsmouth on September 16th and we carpooled to Humboldt for the Richardson County Fair. We both hadn't been to the fair in a few years, so we decided to go together! Samantha & Jen's middle daughter - Riley - are the same age, so they always have fun together. Clair & Makaya - Jen's youngest daughter are also the same age! We had 5 carseats in my van on way down - it was a full load! We got there just in time for the parade at 11:00am. The kids had fun collecting candy and waving at the people in the parade. Alden LOVED watching the bands. After the parade, we ate lunch at the Band Parent's Stand - something that Jen & I both LOVE doing and missed dearly when we couldn't get back for the fair! We had hamburgers and soup and pie and a lot more! Needless to say... we were stuffed! After lunch, we let the kids ride some rides and they had a lot of fun. Alden was so bummed when he ran out of ride tickets! :) We decided we had spent way too much money, so we took the free shuttle (hayrack ride) to the Ag Building to see some of the exhibits. It was actually a very cool day, so it felt good to get out of the wind and get warm! On the way home, my kids fell asleep and stayed asleep until we pulled into the garage! It was a very peaceful drive for me!
