A Day at the County Fair…

I just now getting around to editing some photos I took
 from the county fair in Ventura.  I have to say going to the fair really 
makes me feel like a kid again!!


I hadn’t been to a Fair in for ever..  
All the smells of the food cooking and loud music
brought me back to when I was a kid..


My first stop was to get a hot dog on a stick.. My hubby said I was crazy.. 
They had so much wonderful and yummy food here at the fair..  
But like I told my hubby, I can’t go to a fair and not get a corn dog.. 
It just wouldn’t be right..


And then there were the rides.. 


I just don't remember rides being this scary when I was young.



The swings were always a favorite..


And who doesn't love to ride the marry-go-round..



And how can you forget all the crazy games.



You know you always have to play. 
Even if the prizes are not even worth it..



This one cracked me up… They must have ran out of coke bottles.. 
 And had to throw in a Corona bottle..



Well there you have it,  A great day at the fair.. 

I am linking up with 


Thanks so much for stopping by.. 

Hugs, Linda

Love your series, all so wonderful. Sure brings back memories when I was a kid and would go to the Texas State Fair every year in Dallas. Had my first corny dog there too. I like how you mixed in b&w's. I always have a hard time with b&w's.
