Ok, Ok, I know that was the name of my last post. My last post from Thursday. :( I am a slacker and have not been able to blog. I have let life get in the way of blogging. I am a bad, bad, bloggy friend. Can you forgive me???
When last I left off we were on a tour of my county fair. We saw the midway, women's building, beer tent, and scared little kids. The one thing we really did not see was Little Logan riding the rides and the demolition derby. Lets do that now, shall we.
L.L. was all ready to go ride those rides. You know the ones put up by carnival workers in a matter of a couple of days. This year he was moving up to the BIG rides. I was scared, he was not. I just knew B.L. would get him on those rides first thing and L.L. was going to be sick. Then we would have to go home early. Well not me, if he got sick and had to go home early, I was hitching a ride home with my friend Sonia or Melinda. This is us. :)
The first ride he went on was "The Scrambler". It is notorious for making you loose your cookies. So I knew this was not going to be good.
He loved it...
I actually think he might have been a little bored with it.
The Logan's then went off in another direction and I did not get to take any more pictures of them riding. I found out later why they left me with the girls. There was one particular ride that I said he could NOT RIDE. Do they listen to me? NooooOOooo!
This is what they rode....
The Ring of Fire! Now I personally love this ride, but for an 8 year old boy, I don't think so. When I said "why did you not call me so I could take his picture", Big Logan said "Because I knew you would not let him on it". He was right. I mean when you ride this they stop the ride upside down for at least a minute, and you are coming out of your seat holding on for dear life. Yep he took my baby on that.
When I did catch up with him later on, I found out that he had found his most favorite ride. This ride happens to have been my favorite also when I was little. The Tilt-A-Whirl! Oh my goodness that thing is fun! I figured this would be his undoing. If you have the slightest bit of a weak stomach this might do you in. He wanted me to ride it with him. I was praying that this would not be his undoing.
L.L. just has to make a funny or weird face in most all his pictures.
Melinda tried to get a picture of us on the ride while it was going, but she never could quite get us. This is the closest one. :)
We decided to leave after this. Not because of upset bellies, but because we were tired. We had parked in the infield of the Grand Stands, so as we left I took some pictures of the Demolition Derby. Now if you have never been to one, this is how it works. A bunch of cars get into an arena and run into each other until only one is left moving. That person is either the winner of that heat, or the overall winner of the entire derby.
Here all the people in the stands were yelling for the red car to mercilessly continue to hit the yellow one as it was in the corner and had no way of getting out.
Guess who won this heat? Yep the red car.
This now concludes my night at the fair. I hope you have enjoyed our little trip through some of the sights of a country fair. If you have one coming up make sure you go. If you have never been to one, then bless your heart, you don't know what you are missing. They are quite enjoyable and the people watching is THE BEST!
Until next time....
