BSM - A Day at the Fair

I didnt know how easy it was going to be getting Keith to go to the Fair. He and Ella awoke around 630am and headed downstairs to play. I woke up around 830am and went to get something to drink. After Keith saw me awake, I decided to go lay down in bed again and watch some TV. Since Ella wasnt aware that I was awake, I could be all by myself. Alone. Quiet. Waking at my own pace. The day always goes so much better.

Once I decided to show my face, I played with Ella for a bit then sat down with Keith to read the Sunday paper. When I opened it, I remembered that the State Fair had started last week. Amazingly, it only took me 3 tries of asking "Wanna go to the fair today?" and about 15 minutes to very slyishly get Keith off of the computer and into the shower to head to the FAIR within the hour! "Lets go for Ella." I think that was the one that got him. :0)

Although it was very busy and the crowds were horrible just walking down the street, the lines for rides and food did not seem that bad. As long as we remembered we were in no rush and had all day to be there, we all stayed pretty happy. By the end of the day, we agreed that I could not ask him to go again for atleast another 5 years, but if Ella were to ask him to take her, all bets were off!!
