SC State Fair 2010

Our tradition is to take the boys out of school early on the first Friday of the fair.
The first line of business at the fair is food.
The boys hit the cotton candy first.

The way cotton candy is made is so cool!
7ww
I do not know this lady. You see all kind of people at the fair. Even people with outrageously long nails eating mustardy corn dogs.
2ww
Mini donuts, anyone? I. Could. Seriously. Eat. 47. Of. These. Donuts!
14ww
Milk and warm cookies warms my soul, and my tummy.
13ww
If there ever was a perfect picture to accurately assess my boys’ personalities, this is it.
15ww
This is one of the three swings that the boys rode time and time again.
1ww
This was the smallest of the swings.
6ww
These were the medium sized swings.
16ww
Of course we took time to people watch. It’s a hobby of ours.
18ww
Then there were several rounds of bumper cars. Whip lash anyone?
17ww
The boys got brave this year and rode a few different Ferris wheels.
3ww
The sky was amazingly clear. If I didn’t have such a weak stomach I would have enjoyed the pace of this ride.
9ww
This was a seriously big ride.
1g
And yet another Ferris wheel.
4ww
The boys did not ride this ride. A bribe of a huge stuffed dog didn’t even phase them.
10ww
Wheeeeeeeee!
12ww
Dusk is approaching. This is another one of those scare the pants off you ride. Not for the boys. Not for me. Not for my husband. Not for us at all.
2g
This was another one we viewed from afar. No crazy thrill seekers here.
1ss
Now it’s full-out dark out. And, so darn cool to see all of the lights at night. Cool, yet rather aggravating since 3/4 of us gets migraines and 1/4 of us has seizures. So, really, it wasn’t all that cool because my husband did get a bad migraine that night that lasted until the next night.
11ww
As tradition dictates, the last ride of the night is the sky lift ride from one end of the fair to the opposite end.
8ww
We LOVE the SC State Fair and can’t wait until next year! Might even need to hit it again this year. Just realized we missed all of the agricultural and art exhibits.

  1. The fair is something I look forward to every year. I went as a child and now as a mother it means even more to me. This year Payton wasn't big enough to enjoy the rides but it was still so much fun. Love the lady with the long nails... so true how there are so many people at the fair. Very.interesting.people.

    Thanks for sharing and for linking up. Hope you have a great rest of the week.

  2. You mean my ramblings about flash doesn't EXCITE you!?? HA HA!!! :-) I had to laugh at that one - yeah, pretty boring huh? Too funny that our b-days are a day apart. I'm kinda feeling old this year - the big 36. Bleh!

    And as for your fair pics - AWESOME! I'm so jealous of your ferris wheel pics. You might not remember my whole ferris wheel picture fiasco this year. Basically didn't get the shots I wanted, the fair left town, major bummer, etc etc...

    Well, if you have trouble sleeping, you can always catch up on my flash post - hee hee! :-)
