A night at the fair.


Last night we took the kids to the county fair. They didn't have armband night last night, but the cost wasn't too bad. It was 1 ticket per ride night. The tickets were $1. I thought it was ok considering that the rides are generally 4 tickets per ride on a regular night. The coupons are $1 a piece every night. I remember when we could go to the fair and $20 kept you riding all night long. Anyhow, this is the "kamakazee" ride that the kids went on. I used to ride these kind of rides all the time, but now the thought of it makes my stomach turn. We ate "Fair food" last night. I had something called the Texas Tornado which was basically a Huge fajita Taco with Chicken, Beef & Pico De Gallo. It was supposed to come with Guacamole, but they ran out. Kourtney & I shared a cup of roasted corn w/chili. Little Gary had a burger and a plate overflowing of curly fries. Kourntey & big Gary both had those huge turkey legs. Man! I think we ate enough calories to last us a year! Boy I sure am glad they only come around once a year!

You know, I've gained eight pounds since I started reading your blog--just about a month ago. And that's just from reading it!

Oh, keep it up. Love it.

I think fairs are one of the best places to people watch. I do like those roasted turkey legs, but haven't had the courage to try things like fried Oreos or fried Twinkies...

I can't go on those rides anymore either, uggggh.

I love the french fries with vinegar. And you definitely can't ride after eating those!

LOOOVE fair food! We just went to the State Fair in Indiana on Wednesday. Problem was, it was sooo hot I didn't feel much like eating fair food. Bummer!

Have a great weekend! Michele sent me. :)
