the fair | “something is not right with that corn dog” panama city 2011

Now fall wouldn’t complete without my token ferris wheel image thrown at you…you know you were waiting on it and I won’t disappoint.

Ah the fair…

on our drive over there I was thinking to myself, “Why are we going to the fair?” Afterall, if there were a criminal background check required there would be no such thing as a carnie and therefore no fair, the fashion police would run out of tickets if they got in the door, and the corndog my husband just had to have, well it was downright pornographic-looking. Oh and when he got to the “hotdog” of it…yeah it was just a bunch of vienna sausages. Yep, that’s right.

But when I got on the swings with Olivia and felt Jason Aldean thumping on my chest (you know that loud fair music), felt the wind through my hair, and felt the sensation of weightlessness, almost like I was flying, I remembered how I felt when I was a kid-the fair was really quite awesome. I saw that same look on my kid’s faces tonight…

sometimes the iPhone is your best bet (RIP Steve Jobs-things like this show you have forever changed our lives)

They don’t notice the scrubby fair workers, the cigarette smoke hanging in the air, the smell of manure, or care if the food is so processed it will probably stay in your body until the next fair-they only see fun.

Poor Presley couldn’t ride anything so she snacked on her popcorn;-)

Yes those are my kinds in the Budweiser car-not sure why there is a beer car on kiddie ride but that is just another wonder of the fair;-)

The look on Grey’s face is simply priceless…
