Barnes Boys Fashion - Off to the Fair

we like to go to the fair every year...mainly the O.C. fair...since that is what i grew up doing. I would drag bryan along before we had kids and make him go through the crafting exhibit and he would look at all the entries for table-setting and just puzzle...but the prize for the largest lemon? fascinating. he also likes the (i call it) "as seen on TV" exhibit. oh goodness...he could spend hours in there! but with 3 kiddos - our trip to the fair is more like...get in...swing by the animals...pick up something fried...try to find a seat to park...let them pick a couple rides and games and we are out! like 3 hours...the whole time people telling us we have our hands full, or "3 boys!!! wow!!! trying for that girl?" - we say yes every time...and don't mention bryan's little procedure...its our little joke because we are geeks like that! 

we did have fun - especially Bodie who could NOT stop talking about the monster truck ride...its a trek and pricey, but a fun little tradition! what's your favorite thing at the fair?

Is Bodie's shirt HealthTex? My brother had t-shirts just like that when he was little. Love it. I can feel the cotton-poly blend...
