A Ticket to Ride
So a few weeks ago while we were in Illinois my dad convinced us that we should all head over to the County Fair, have some funnel cake, ride the Ferris Wheel and (as it turns out) marvel at some of the home grown fashion. Now as a younger kid I used to love the fair because I loved the rides, now as a grown up and a parent I love watching the kids love the rides. But I will not lie, I also love the funnel cakes.
Dad and Ethan in line for the big slide.

Lilly coming down the big slide with Uncle Paul, she had a huge smile on her face and demanded more.
Waving bye bye as the Merry go round takes off
Lilly gets a ride from Grandpa
As my brothers family (minus baby Alexis) take a ride on the Ferris Wheel.
Dad and Paul take their lives in their hands as they ride something called a Tomahawk
While the rest of us enjoy the sites
And Lilly passed out
One more spin with my step mother and Ethan had had enough
In the end a fun time was had by all, we all went home with very full bellies and dreams of twinkling lights.
