IT'S FAIR TIME!!!

Ohhhhhh yyyeeeaaaaaa, it's that time of year again. Time to go out and see what REALLY lives in the same county as you do!!! This picture is of my mom and dad at the Clark Co. fair a couple years ago. There's a really funny story about it, but it's a family thing and I'm not explaining it on my blog. If you know about it, you're already laughing at the picture. I have always loved going to the fair. When I was growing up, Blanche and Brenda lived in Hurricane and that is where the fair was held, so I would go stay at Blanche's house and have fun all week. It's funny to look back on it now because Randy grew up in Hurricane and there WERE events year after year that we were both at and didn't know we would end up marrying each other!!! It's a good thing we didn't know each other then, we wouldn't have ever got together. That's happened a lot though our lives. It's weird. Back to the fair. I don't know what I like the best. The rides that are set up so scary that the thrill I get from them is wondering if they're gonna break when I'm pulling 3 G's or is my favorite the....

DEMOLITION DERBY? Nothing says "redneck" like watching cars crash into each other and actually enjoying it!!! We are such morons. Oh well, we like it and so do a lot of other people. Some times when I'm watching the derby, I feel like I just saw it on Bluff Street. Every year when we go to the derby we take the kids to Jim and Peggy's to play but this year is a little different. It's Cambelle's 3rd birthday on Saturday. When I asked my mother-in-law if it would be rude to ditch our daughter on her birthday for the derby, you should have seen the look on my sis-in-law's face.!!! It was pretty funny. I don't think Cambelle will hold it against us that we're going without her. We're having a swim party on Monday for her b-day and she's 3... what's funner than grandma's house? I think she'll be fine!!! Anyhow, watch out carnie workers, here we come!!!
