The Peanut Festival

This year we were so excited to take the kids to the peanut festival! Rides, tractors, animals, games, food-there is just so much to do and see there. We went every year growing up, and now it's fun to be able to take our little ones. They both went last year and Hayes was able to ride lots of rides, but Watson was in a stroller-totally different story this year!! I think we picked the most crowded day at the most crowded time to go which stressed this mama out to the MAX in a crowd like that with both my kids. Being held/confined/not able to be free is not a strong skill for Watson so you can imagine how hard it was to have to hold a wild baby tiger and then wait in lines! We started with the carousel and then went around to the tractors which was so fun for all the kids. All different sizes to climb up and sit on and they loved it. Then we went to the petting zoo with a mixture of farm animals and wild animals you could pet-kind of funny and strange. We made our way back around to the rides and the crowd was a little better and they were able to ride alot of things. It was so funny to watch their faces on the rides!! We ended our night w/corndogs and elephant ears-sooooooo good. It was a fun night w/the fam. Thank you Shug and Grandaddy for a fun trip!!
