State Fair Field Trip

Grand Island, Nebraska
August 2011

{our class and  our principal!}

This is what happens when I let someone else carry the camera and disappear to go look at a display that does not include race cars, beef jerky or gigantic nitrogen bottles. 
Poor Langston - though he does look sorta cute in braids!

Why we don't let five-year olds have licenses - even if they were to drive with their Dads.  'Nuff said, look at that intense racing face!

Solar powered racers
One of our favorite stops - The Power Station.  Seems my husband can't really get away from work (though I am thankful he enjoys his job enough to chum around with fellow employees when he's off-the-clock!)
We spent


Electricity.  Fascinating.

Okay, pop quiz.  It is a school field trip after all.  What is cuter than a puppy?

  1. WAIT. You mean we have to let our kids actually drive at some point??! I thought bikes were sufficient....

    I love that sign too!!! :) And you're so much better on rides than I am - I just shut my eyes, hang on tight and hope it's over soon (and for some reason John never offers to take me to Great America!).

  2. What a fun day. I love rides like that!!
    Love Gramma
