Our State Fair is a Great State Fair!
I'll be darned if the fair didn't come around again this year. We had such a good time last year that we figured we'd better go again. We weren't disappointed! Ethan got much more of a kick our of it this year what with being able to recognize the animals and such. We also chose a weekday evening instead of a weekend day, which meant it was a lot less crowded and hot. So basically we chowed down on some delicious fair food, including (between the 3 of us): a bbq sandwich with slaw, a polish sausage with fixins, a chicken pita, a lemonade, homemade ice cream and a funnel cake. Yum-O! You may ask, "Didn't that cost a fortunate?" And the answer is: Yes. Let's just say we were pretty much eating beans for the rest of the week after I examined the budget...But it was worth it!! At the expo center we got to see the huge pumpkins and a whole bunch of animals. Ethan was delighted. We've been talking about the baby piggies ever since. The event was very stimulating as a whole. I already can't wait till next year!
