We had a great time this year at the Ozark Empire Fair. I've been coming to the fair since I was a small kid and it always brings back memories. This year Maggie was tall enough and interested in riding some of the rides. I think it helps that she has such an outgoing big sister to encourage her to try new things. The girls had a fun fun time!
We were joking while we were there that half the thrill of the fair is the part where it is all kind of old and haphazardly assembled (as in like, it could break and send you hurtling to your death at any moment!), everything is sticky and grimy (ewwww).... The people who operate the rides are a little creepy (and only about 1/4 of them speak English) and one guy, no joke, was loading the kids on the ride with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth. The food is terrible too and costs way too much! But-- admit it. The fair is cool...and you just have to go! ;)
James and Kayley rode the Scrambler and ride went on forever and ever and ever. The operator started talking and wasn't paying attention. Its a good thing they aren't prone to motion sickness!
We had a great time!!
