Oh, the things to do at the Fair!

Friday, we went to the fair. We had a blast! We watched the cattle show, saw every animal from A to Z, ate the best fried foods you can imagine. If I'm gonna clog my arteries, it's gonna be by the most awesome fair food. I'm talkin' fried oreos, fried twinkies, funnel cakes, turkey legs, gyros and so on. An endless parade of food that we should only eat once a year, lest we die of a heart attack. Now, everyone knows that if you're gonna eat a full and heavy meal or several snacks, then you should prolly wait a few before getting on those rides. Not me! We had an awesome time on the rides, playing those wonderful scamming games and just taking in the whole experience of the fair. We checked out the 4-H exhibits and bought a few souvineers at the cute lil crafty store places. We sat and ate our fried foods, while sitting around listening to the bands play their great music and we finished off the day by going and laying out on the grass and watching the fireworks. What a day! We walked forever, which is why I'm not guilty about eating the fried stuff. I only wish I took more pics! All in all another great fair experience gone by for 2009. It's that time of year for everyone, where the fairs hit town. Just about everyone I know goes to these and for good reason. Not only can it be tons of fun, but super educational. Next Monday, I'm using our fair experience for my Daughter to write a paper about. I think her favorite experience was getting to go on the Agri-lift. I agree. That was a pretty awesome ride, getting to ride clear across the park in a ski-lift type ride, above the tree tops and tiny ppl below. Very cool, especially at night! So pretty! My other favorite experience, is the same as every year. I love watching the livestock shows...I schedule the fair dates and times around the livestock show schedule. My fair day is not complete without watching a few classes at cattle show...Well, that's my dish on our fair day. What's yours?
