Things I'm looking forward to:
*pork chop on a stick
*all the crap you can get at the Varied Industries Building (eek... what about my de-cluttering?)
*tie dye at 'Nita's in the Cultural Building
*seeing the double ferris wheel and reminiscing w/ Tracy about when we were stupid enough to go on that rickety bucket of bolts... seeing it again makes me laugh every time
*the Iowa Tourism building
*checking out the cheesy stuff for sale under the Grandstand
*the bee hives
*riding the sky lift
*the draft horses
*all the photographs in the Cultural Building
*the biggest bull & the biggest pig
*the hope that the chainsaw carver will once again be Brian Ruth, the hottest chainsaw carver that ever lived
*a big cinnamon roll
*did I mention lemonade?
Last year, Tracy was very pregnant with Elora, and the year before that, we only got to go for one lousy little day. This visit is practically going to feel like the old days, when Dad would have the camper there for the entire fair. I can't wait for this weekend!
