Saturday night at the fair - last chance!
Noni and Popi came! Yay! We had a thunder shower in the afternoon so the table were wet. Everyone stood around and ate their supper. Shortly after supper Noni bought Emma a bracelet to ride all night and Emma was off. It wasn't too long before she hooked up with Mary's granddaughter again and they spent most of the night riding together. At one point I peeled off with Noni and Popi and we went to look at the exhibits. We had a rain shower about midway through the evening and took the opportunity to grab some fair food and picnic on the bleachers in the show barn. Fair food consumed by our crew: Italian sausage, hot dog, BBQ sandwich, two tubs of french fries, two steak sandwiches, one apple dumpling and two funnel cakes, one with powdered sugar and one with maple drizzle. Mmmmm.

We stuck it out until 10:30 p.m. for the fireworks. Emma is like the energizer bunny when it comes to rides. She's get off of one ride and nearly sprint to the next one, dragging poor L. behind her. I'm telling you, Emma is a force to be reckoned with. She's a...uh...natural leader.

After the fireworks Emma rode the carousel once more and then we headed home. All the adults were dead on their feet. I think everyone slept like the dead last night.
