Rides, cattle, shamtastic and anything "totally fried" were all at our disposal today during our day at the fair. The girls hit the rides first, getting the most for their 25 tickets. Mini roller coasters, tea cups, Winky the Whale, a haunted pirate ride, giant slides and the merry-go-round were among the assortment.
While the air was filled with aromas sugary, buttery and everything battered, we all headed for Hot-Dog-on-a-Stick for corn dogs and lemonade. We did not see the infamously new chocolate covered bacon, but after hot dogs the girls each picked a frosty treat.
Finally we strolled through an abbreviated tour of the exposition halls, including the wood working, hobby, and garden halls. On our way to the gates, we looked at the animals (cattle, sheep, pigs, and goats). Seemed as if everyone was getting ready to show, so there was a lot of activity in the barns.
