The highlight of the weekend was the fair. At this point, it may be more about nostalgia than anything else, but I love the fair and even better when I get to go with mom and dad because I've been going to this very same fair with them since I was a baby. We don't even do much, but eat and walk around looking at exhibits but there is something about the fair that keeps me coming back every year. This year we skipped the animals, and went on the Ferris Wheel. That's about all any of us could handle. My mom never liked them, but MJ and I have completely aged out of rides like Mach 1, Mega Drop and the Zipper. My stomach sinks just thinking about riding those again, and I don't know how I ever did it before. There were so many bodies crammed into this place. 1,609,481 guests total and 96,501 on the busiest day (July 3rd) made it to the fair this year. That's A LOT of people. Traffic getting in and out was terrible, but it was worth it for me. The the weather was perfect and we had a really nice day.

I always tear up a little bit when I hug them good-bye, but we've got some fun things this year and I look forward to seeing them again soon.
