Fun at the Fair

We picked Elijah up this morning from camping with his grandparents, then we headed to the opening day of the Skagit County Fair in Mount Vernon! We’ve lived here for almost 4 years, and have never been to this fair. Since we’re moving in a few weeks, we thought we’d go check it out. Plus they had a special deal today: all tickets before 3pm were only $3, and kids 5 & under are free. So it only cost $9 for our family of 5 to get in.

We walked around and saw all the animals. The kids got to pet a cow, a bunny, and a goat. We saw sheep, pigs, horses, chickens, dogs, cats, eagles, owls, geese, turkeys, and more!

The kids ate lunch right before we got there. Jon and I split a corn dog, and then we all shared a funnel cake. So we spent $5 to park close, $9 for admission, and $8 on food, bringing our total to $22. Not bad for a family of 5 and a few hours of fun at the fair!

We didn’t go on any of the rides today because the budget didn’t allow it; maybe another day at another fair 🙂
The Skagit County Fair runs August 8-11 this year. For times, prices, and directions, visit www.skagitcounty.net/fair.
