Friday Fair Day

Nicki and Neena slept over with me at the fair last night.  We started the day by browsing the buildings.

Then we took a walk to the library.

Watched a magic show.

We had lunch in the camper, watched a couple of movies, and then went for a walk around the barns.

After their mom got to the fairgrounds we went to the carnival and they rode down the Super Slide.
