Illinois State Fair

The Illinois State Fair has been a highlight of the summer for years! I remember coming to the fair when I was little, walking around, seeing the animals, eating the fair food, riding some rides, watching some horse shows...I loved the fair! And I still do! This time, though, it was even more fun because I got to watch my own children enjoy the fair! We started with riding the ponies, then the big slide, then we enjoyed a fried Twinkie!!! YUM! Although it doesn't go very far when you are sharing it with six people! After that we rode the Ferris Wheel and Bumper Cars. For dinner, we all (all six of us) shared Corn Dogs, a cheese burger, regular fries, and sweet potato fries. Then it was off to the FFA tent to pet some animals. When we were done there, we rode the Sky Coaster back to the gate. Before we left, we all shared an Elephant Ear, then headed home! It was a wonderful night. We had so much fun and wished we could have stayed longer!! (And tried some more fair food - like a fried Snickers bar!!!) = )
