The more things stay the same, the more they change.

This week, my friend Lisa and I took our kids to the fair. Not all of our kids — just our big ones. Our growing-up-too-fast-right-before-our-eyes 5-year-olds. Dillon and Hannah have been going to the fair together since 2008. It's a tradition we didn't plan. It sort of discovered us. Travel with me, if you will, down memory lane:
