Ohio State Fair (Lots of Pictures)

Good Times, Good Times...

‘Twas a very pleasant day for the fair. The weather was perfect, the skies were blue and sunny. There was a nice breeze, and although it was crowded, it was still fun.

Welcome to the Fair

I’ll tell you what, having a wristband makes hitting the rides so much easier. I was sufficiently dizzy by the end of the night. Until I ate, that is.

The first thing Bob and I rode was something called the Space Roller.

I LOVE the Ohio State Fair!! (Pictures)

I had such an amazing time at the Fair today! We didn’t get there ’til really late. It was hot and crowded. Not horribly, though. Heh. Bob, Chris, Aidan and I got there first. They parked us with the campers which I thought was really weird, but whatever. After a few failed attempts, we finally made our way into the fair. We went in through a side entrance and totally could have gotten away with not paying–had we not pre-bought our tickets at Kroger! HAHA. Irony, such a funny thing, eh?

So we got something to drink and floated through the Commercial building. It was crowded but air-conditioned at least. Then Aidan got really mad and hungry so we left to get him some food. Craig called while we were at the stand, saying he’d arrived with Theresa and Tom. They met us there. And we went on from there. :)

We ate and rode and laughed and got rained on. Total blast. :D

You guys will be so proud of me. Remember the video of the crazy ride from a couple of entries ago? I GOT ON IT TODAY! Yes, I rode the Power Surge. Craig paid for me, Bob, and Tom to ride it, so we did.


Seriously, it kicked some serious bootay. It was just… so random. Lots of flipping and turning and you really have no idea where you’re going or anything. It was fantastic!!! I was very mildly dizzy when I got off, and I was over it in about 15 seconds.

I guess after Mission Space (at Disneyworld), these rides are nothing, hahaha.

Bob and I also rode the Orbiter and the Scrambler. The Scrambler is the longest ride evarrrrr. Totally awesome. I am so glad I have a friend who will ride all those crazy twisty-turny rides with me. Tina didn’t show up, so I was so happy when Bob was willing to join me, yay. Next year, he and I are getting the wristbands and going ride crazy. THAT will be sweeeet.

I have tons of pictures and some video too, so I guess I should go ahead and get to ’em, huh? :)

Bob and me on The Orbiter!!! WOOHOO!!!

Fair Pt 2 & Stuff

I had a great time at the Fair today! :) I went with Craig and Tina, then Chris joined us later. While I was there, I ran into Kelly P. Tyler, Becky, Emily (yoimemily), and Tony. We met up with Craig’s friend Josh, and that was awesome. I ate goood food–a philly cheesesteak sammich (sans onions and peppers, of course), fries, bi-color corn, pizza, and a deep fried Twinkie. My tummy is happy!

I can’t believe I spent around $30 just on food. Who would have thought a little one like me could eat so much?? ;)

What’s even more remarkable is that I could eat again right now. Blimey!

I took more pictures–lots of ones of Aidan in those picture posing cardboard thingies. I’ll try to post them tomorrow/tonight, after i’ve gone to the Fair yet AGAIN! This time I’m going with Angelo and Monica, and admission is only (thankfully) $2! Since I’ve eaten everything I wanted this year (corn, fries, turkey leg, Twinkies, pizza, cheesesteak), I really don’t need to eat much tomorrow/today. Just something small if I get hungry enough. Maybe Aidan and I will split some fries or something.

We’ll see once I get out there and start to smell all the yummy food, though. Mmmmm.

We saw the fireworks as we were leaving. We were stuck in a long line of traffic, but we had perfect head-on view. They were gorgeous. Again. OH, Tina and I rode the Wave Swinger (swings), and the Tilt-A-Whirl. The Tilt-A-Whirl was AWESOME. We got some amazing spins out of that thing!!! What I love about Tina is that she will ride all those twisty-twirly rides that everyone else says make them sick. So next year, we’re going to buy the wristbands and go and ride all that fun stuff together! WOOHOO!

In the one building where they have the what Chris not so affectionately refers to as “junk,” I saw some things that really knocked me back into childhood. The Strawberry Shortcake dolls and minatures of MY generation! The snail/cart thing that turned into a picnic table, and her little bike! Oooo. I had all those toys! If I were rich, I’d buy them again! I do love going in that building. All the nice old stuff. Heh.

I saw the new calf, llamas, chicks, puppies, and the grand champion hogs! It was good times. I took pictures of the precious baby calf–looked just like its mama.

After the Fair, I took Tina home, then we went to Craig’s to hang out a bit. On his delicious flat screen TV, we watched Olympics. Tomorrow night is women’s gymnastics!!!! I told him I might be over to watch that, and he said OK! I LOVE watching gymnastics. Oh, if I were RICH, I’d sooo be in Athens right now watching that competition. But alas, that is not the case. Well, I guess it depends on what I am relating it too. I won’t go into that now, though. I’m not in the mood for deep philosphical stuff tonight.

So, it’s time for a bath then bed. I’m going to try not to make it 3 nights in a row where I made the dang water too hot. But my back aches and it’s craving a hot bath! *le sigh* Okay then, night night!
