Meet me in St. Louis Louis...

Meet me at the fair, don't tell me the lights are shining any place but there!! (Well, and in AZ.)
Ok, you may not know this song, but it means something to me.

We went to the fair this year and it was magical!! We got to go with Todd, with whom I am quite fond of and his beautiful daughter Sophia, with whom I am also quite fond of.

I wish we would have taken more pictures because I want to remember...

the smell of gas as we watched demolition derby (it was awesome!!)

the taste of the awesome funnel cake

the joy of watching my kids win a stuffed animal after successfully popping balloons with a dart

watching Sophia enjoy the music and taking in the lights

seeing the look on Addy's face as she traveled down the giant slide at break neck speed (thanks for holding onto her Todd!)

seeing the look on Todd's face as he traveled down the giant slide at break neck speed (thanks for holding onto him Addy).

seeing Todd's face as he watched the cars demolish one another.

seeing Simon's face as he watched cars crash into one another. I know he's dreaming of a day when he can be behind the wheel (scary!)

hearing Simon laugh on the kid roller coaster

believing that Sophia and I secretly picked the winning car, but just didn't tell anyone

knowing that each and everyone of us was having a great time

And my favorite, the ferris wheel, oh, wait Todd did capture this one!!!

Thanks Todd!!

*Tracie, I'll start saving up my money so we can go again next year!!!
