The Fair

September wouldn't be complete without a trip to the state fair. We put Penny in the trusty backpack and ventured out on the last night the fair was in town. Many of the animals had already gone, but we were still able to show Penny the goats and the rabbits, eat some funnel cakes, and do some people watching. The demolition derby was sold out, but we could hear it and saw a little bit of the action behind the scenes. Ah, the fair. Where else can you see award winning amateur art, eat a deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and listen to the sounds of revving engines and people cheering?

It was nice to be there around dusk, when the sun was setting. I was tempted to try the carousel, but after our recent Lagoon experience, I decided against it. We'll wait a little while before we try that again.

Awww, hope Penny enjoyed herself, looks like a great time to go. Pretty lights!!!

We have our city "fair" here (although we call it the "show" -- eww, that reminds me of pregnancy & birth etc now that I write it out like that) but it's coming up soon and I'll be taking the boys - even if they are too young to really enjoy it.

Also, what on earth is a funnel cake?

I love taking the girls to the fair. This was the first year we turned them loose on rides a little and wandered off briefly ourselves. Whoohoo!
