My friend Darlene invited me & lil man to go to the fair with her & her little ones... There's nothing better than $5 after 5pm on Wednesdays! She lives near one of the back entrances so she had the great idea of walking! Or so I thought! Seeing that it was in the middle of the week ALL the back entrances were CLOSED!!! My feet were already swollen. Back was crampin. Belly was hungry. To top it off lil man started compaining! It felt like we would never get to an open gate! I was even trying to bribe some of the guards to sneak us in & we'd pay full price ( that is totally out of my nature, but I was desperate!)
We finally got in & all the pains went away as I munched on my King Taco carne asada nachos with extra salsa!!! Bomb deezy!!!! Something about the fair is soothing to me... The BBQ smoke in the air, the loud music, the bright lights! I just love it!!! The long walk was totally worth it especially after seeing the kids faces light up when they saw the farm animals! They even got to enjoy a few rides together! (I can't believe how big they all are... Tear! Tear!. Its bittersweet!)
The night ended with some soft served ice cream & a LONG walk home! :)
