Fireman's Fair

We made it to the Fireman's Fair today. After the awful heat and humidity we've been having here in NY, I was doubtful that we would be able to go. But a storm came through last night that took away the humidity - it left the hot, but it was bearable for the short time we were out.

As soon as we walked onto the fair grounds Matthew headed for his favorite game - the "pick the ducks with the numbers and pick a prize" game.
He walked away with an inflatable hammer. Just what he was looking for! :-p
I was glad to be able to take Noah on a few of the more tame kiddie rides, like the train. I look like I have 4 chins and Noah looks like a floating head, but this is the best shot I could get with my reverse camera on my iPhone.
Matthew took a lot of solo rides.
Which Noah was okay with - gave him a chance to bond with the big hammer.
We had to have a giant cup of ice cream with rainbow sprinkles. It's the law.
Well, not so much a real law, but it is Noah's law.
After the ice cream break it was back to the rides.
And of course, more games.
The boys needed a little help with the basketball game.
Cheating was encouraged and facilitated by the staff.
Matthew loves the thrill of winning. And for some reason he loves loves loves these little stuffed fair prizes. He is currently snuggling with this crayon in his bed.
Noah has started taking a liking to them too. Although he has no interest in snuggling with them - he has more of the "use them as weapons" mentality. Seriously, don't let this cute face fool you.
We ended the day with a ride on the ferris wheel with Pop Pop and some Zeppolis. 
Tonight in the bath Matthew told me he had a good day. That he had fun at the fair. He then listed all the little stuffed animals that he won and the rides he went on. It was beyond cute. Then Noah smacked him with the hair washing bucket and bath time was over. And that's how the day usually ends here!

This looks like a fun day! The weather really did get better! It was so hot the past few days. I am sure the ice cream was a nice way to get cool. I hope you are doing great! have a good night!
