And, I must admit, we are slightly nostalgic: Chris and I marched in the Tulelake Parade (ending at the fairgrounds) every year throughout high school, and spent many years hanging out at the fair together.
So this year, when we thought Cole would be old enough (and tall enough!) to REALLY enjoy the fair with all the rides, we thought we'd take advantage. And boy, did he ever have fun!

And Chase was a trooper! We had tons of time to lay out a blanket for him in between rides - he enjoyed himself so much!
