The Ohio State Fair

The kids and I have been in Ohio for the past week and a half. The day we arrived we went to the Ohio State Fair and had lots of fun. Here are some of the highlights:

Deep Fried Buckeyes! (For those who don't know, Buckeyes are the traditional candy of Ohio - chocolate covered peanut butter balls.) The deep fried version was very good, but you probably can only get them here. The food stand also had deep fried PB&J, snickers, milky ways, Oreos, and Nutter Butters. By the way, the Ohio State Fair was also the place to try chocolate covered frozen bananas, cheesecake on a stick, and chocolate covered bacon - the latter of which was said to not be very good at all!

Cows, cows, and more cows! There were baby cows born that morning, cows you could milk (Sydney got to do that!), cows you could pet, and cows getting brushed for their shows. Jayden loved the cows and loved waving and saying, "hi," to them all day. We also got to see horses, chickens, ducks, turkeys, and rabbits!

Rides! Sydney enjoyed kiddieland with all the kid rides. Her favorite was the kiddie bumper boats. J was very jealous he couldn't get in too.

The Lemon Shake Up! A full cup of freshly made lemonade for the "bargain" price of $6! J thought this was one of the best things he's ever had and you could barely get the cup away from him! We also had Coke Icees at the fair!

The trampoline! Sydney was not quite heavy enough to get her own self jumping high so one of the workers had to keep coming over and pulling her legs down so she didn't just stay suspended in the air!

It looks like you had so much fun, maybe we'll actually try to go to the fair this year. (We haven't been since 2007.)
