FAIR FOOD & FUN

I got to go to the Western Idaho State fair on Saturday. Jim took me and we had a good time. I especially wanted to eat stuff I don't usually get to eat - like Pronto Pups, milk shakes & spiced pecans. I was sick to my stomach when I got through eating, but it was worth it. We walked through all the Expo Halls, watched a concert by an acapella group, had a massage, looked at the mules and couldn't find the draft horses, looked at the chicken and rabbits, watched the "Splash Dog" show where the dogs jump really high before they go into the water. Some of them were jumping 6' 8" to grab the "bone". The last thing we saw were the 4 wheelers. I had never watched that before and part of the time I couldn't even look - they were climbing rock walls and all kinds of stuff with their vehicles and they looked like they were going to fall over backwards. I think it has been several years since I had been to the fair and I was really glad that Jim offered to take me. We had a good weekend and today was doctor appointment day - one in the morning and one in the afternoon with shopping at WalMart in between. I did get a new vacuum cleaner and was amazed at all the dirt it picked up - don't know why though when the old vacuum hadn't been doing it. No pics of the fair - I forgot to take a camera.

Ditto on being jealous of the massage. When I have lots of money, I'm going to get one every week! I'm so glad that Jim took you to the fair! What a fun "date"!

What a fun thing to do with Uncle Jim!! I'm glad you got to go. We missed this year's fair, but we got to go last year. They can be really fun! Bummer about no pictures, though.

That sounds so fun! Now I'm craving fair food. I'm glad you got to go, and have a massage as well.

It sounds like it was a really fun day. I haven't been to a fair in several years, but they are always fun to go to.

I would love to go and get those Funnel Cakes. The ones where the lines are 30 minutes long and one costs $6! (Maybe I should just learn to make them myself...)

Sounds like a good day, that was awesome of Uncle Jim to hand out with you all day!

We went to the fair here just last week. We watched part of the rodeo, and then left Kellen with some friends to finish the rodeo while Steve, Madison and I wandered the exhibits. We also had our share of fair food, of course, and it was so yummy! I'm glad you had fun going. I remember you and Grandpa taking me and Jared when we lived with you.
