one of my favorite things to do is try out a new state fair. i like eating different delicious fried foods, and showing the animals to our girls, seeing the bright lights of the carnival rides, and people-watching. while the food didn't really live up to the "big tex" state fair, (and no ostrich races, what a tragedy) the nj state fair did have its strengths. for instance, they had a demolition derby going on. i had never seen one before, and i don't believe they are safe, but peeking over the fence into the arena and seeing the wreckage was kind of fun. hazel loved seeing the animals, and she even got to pet a sheep.
sure do love this family of ours.
