Last weekend was EnKa fair! Josie and Eva went together -- without parents! Yeah! Yeah for them for finally getting old enough to do things on their own and Yeah for Gordy and me since it meant we didn't have to go to EnKa at all! Instead of standing in lines and watching our children spin around in dizzying circles, Gordy and I went to a party where we celebrated our new-found freedom with other parents of children old enough for their kids to go to EnKa on their own!
It was a true win-win!
Georgia brought two friends from her soccer team who live in a neighboring town. They met up with a large group of friends, too.
Friday night is probably the most exciting night for EnKa but it's not the smartest night to go. Almost the entire town is at EnKa on Friday night and the lines for the rides get long and it takes forever to make it through. I think that they all got to do about three rides in three hours.
Saturday was another day, luckily. It started with the EnKa parade which included Georgia's middle school marching band.
And my favorite goat from the local farm.
After the parade, the girls met friends again and this time, the lines were short and easy.
EnKa is open through Saturday night, but our family didn't make it until the end. Georgia had lacrosse and Josie had a hockey party to go to. Henry spent the afternoon with friends from town, but he said they only briefly stopped by the fair and while it went unsaid, I assume that meant that they went to get some junk food.
He certainly didn't go to the book tent :)
