OC Fair 2014

I still remember going to the OC Fair last year (link).

Aiden was sleeping in the car last year when we arrived.

DSC07558

This year Aiden is ready for some fun.

DSC07560

He was very happy to sit in his stroller, which has been collecting dust in the garage for quite some time.

DSC07561

So many stands, time to find some food for our tummies.

DSC07563

And time to find a nice seat.

DSC07564

It’s so hot, we need some shades.

DSC07568

Not a bad seat.

DSC07569

And this year we are listening to the kids from the Orange County Broadway school.

DSC07570

There was one particular person that caught my eye.

DSC07575

A performer named Sky.

DSC07588

Sky wasn’t amazing, but I saw potential.

DSC07592

This time around Aiden helped Daddie with ordering food…technically he just kept Daddie company.

DSC07598

They didn’t have the fried crab crepe.

DSC07600

So instead I went for the ham and cheese crepe.

DSC07605

Char-grilled corn

DSC07612

Daddie had drumlettes with fries….

DSC07614

Although Aiden ate a lot of the fries.

DSC07616

Soft Ice Cream

DSC07619

Delicious on a hot day!

DSC07624

Messy eater

DSC07635

Definitely a day full of unhealthy food!

DSC07638

But he was actually enjoying the Broadway music too.

DSC07642

He would turn around in his bench and ignore his food and enjoy the performance on the stage.

DSC07660

Time to look at some animals…

DSC07661

Aiden was a little scared.

DSC07663

At times he would hold on tightly to Daddie’s shirt.

DSC07666

Piglets

DSC07668

They are more interesting than the mean goats.

DSC07674

Time to see how tall Aiden is – not tall enough for this ride.

DSC07692

This ride is just right.

DSC07694

He just loves cars

DSC07699

In control

DSC07700

It’s his world

DSC07702

But…

DSC07703

when the ride started, he didn’t like it as much.

DSC07722

Aiden’s first time out – topless

DSC07730

And he loved it!

DSC07734

He was very curious

DSC07741

He didn’t want to share.

DSC07742

But he kept complaining to Daddie that people wouldn’t share with him.

DSC07744

If people came to where he was he would usually go elsewhere.

DSC07746

Sometimes he just kind of stood and watched.

DSC07750

He enjoyed placing his foot atop the hole where the water comes out of.

DSC07758

He even pulled Daddie to join him around the wet area.

DSC07759

He wants Daddie to stick up for him.

DSC07764

We spent so long here that we almost missed the piggies race.

DSC07770

We ended up going to the last showing at 7.

DSC07771

And we saw kids at different age groups riding a bike with loads up to 165 pounds.

DSC07772

It was nice to teach Aiden to cheer them and the piggies on.

DSC07775

But Aiden was tired and wasn’t a very good audience.

DSC07786

He kicked the lady in front of us several times.

DSC07790

Lucky she was very understanding.

DSC07794

I think playing with water is the highlight of Aiden’s day.

DSC07795

He did not want to leave.

DSC07796

He even put up a small tantrum.

DSC07797

He’s got such an uneven tan.

DSC07802

Poor dark arms.

DSC07803

At least this should help him even out a bit.

DSC07805

His baby belly has gone down a little.

DSC07807

 

DSC07839

He definitely enjoys the perks of going topless!

DSC07841

1 day of OC Fair a year is plenty for me!

DSC07843

He’s like the energizer bunny but the heat tires me out!

DSC07868

But no running in the water for me.

DSC07897

So many kids but Aiden wants nothing to do with him.

DSC07937

In his eyes he only has one friend, Doug Doug.

DSC07942

Very selective toddler we have.

DSC07943

We were out for the whole day and no Time Outs.

DSC07944

Not bad, not bad.

DSC07945

But he is so quick to throw tantrums these days.

DSC07946

So Daddie and Mommie needs to nip it in the bud.

DSC07947

But so far, it’s not working.

DSC07949

It doesn’t help when he doesn’t have patience

DSC07952

And his parents have even less patience.

DSC07953

We’re definitely a family!

DSC07971

We totally forgot about this play area or we would have brought his swim wear.

DSC07973

My co workers said I should have just let him roam in his diapers.

DSC08004

Aiden wanted to play longer.

DSC08015

2nd time on this car ride.

DSC08036

It was the last car available.

DSC08053

He was actually eyeing the blue car.

DSC08072

Again, he preferred sitting inside before the car starts.

DSC08073

At least he’s got a good imagination.

DSC08078

Now he’s ready to get out!

DSC08087

It’s getting late and time to go home after about 6-7 hours of fun.

DSC08113

But crazy Daddie wants to challenge the 12 hour mark next year.

DSC08118

I don’t know if Aiden can handle that.

DSC08122

He conked out soon after we got in the car.
