Cotton Pickin' Fair 2011

Last May my sister and the kids were visiting and we had to come up with something to do to get everyone out of the house. A friend told me about the Cotton Pickin' Fair and we thought we would go check it out.

We all fell in love!

Shopping, good food and entertainment for the kids, we couldn't ask for a more perfect day!

The Fair is the 1st Saturday of every May and October in Gay, GA. We missed October b/c JennaLeigh was born (which was a great excuse) but we made it back this year! Again, we had a fabulous time!

There was so much to do the kids had to choose
1 thing they wanted to do most!

Johnna Katherine, Nixon Grace and Isla chose pony rides!

Julianna Marie and JohnMark chose Sand Art!

The Sandman gave all the girls (and Roman) sparkles!

The kids enjoyed cotton candy and shaved ice!

Julianna, Nixon, Johnna Katherine, and
JohnMark really liked watching the line dancers!

Of course we couldn't leave without getting all the girls face painted!

Julianna Marie painted like a butterfly!

Nixon is a rainbow butterfly!

Johnna Katherine was painted like a kitty cat!

Roman was entertained with hitting the balloons with a pin for about an
hour as we waited for the girls to get their faces painted!

JennaLeigh sat quietly and enjoyed the ride the entire day!

Isla slept most of the day but when she woke up we took
her to get her face painted as a rainbow!

This is definitely a new tradition for us!

Hopefully we will make it to the
Cotton Pickin' Fair in October (it won't be as hot!)

  1. Julia! This looks like so much fun, I've already marked my calendar so we can try to take the girls in October!
