I love the fair. The sights and sounds, the weird food choices, the questionable rides, it’s all part of the magic. It’s even better when the fair is in your town! This year, we went to the fair on a weeknight (which felt strange) with David and Brian. It was Brian’s first time at the Meadowlands Fair!

First stop, snacks! We ended up not getting any of these. We have a system, and it generally begins with a corn dog. I almost NEVER want a hot dog, but I can’t resist a corn dog at the fair.

Hi Brian!

The light was amazing as the sun was setting.

Look at the light! There are benefits to going to the fair while it is still light out!

Always, a stop is required for meat on a stick for Will.

I interrupted him for this photo.

I really appreciate and enjoy the fonts and design on the food stands.

I refuse to ride these swings. We left the rides mostly to David and Brian, but I did join them for an AMAZING turn on the Tilt-A-Whirl.

Another successful trip to the fair. Now to look forward to the more traditional (meaning a mix of carnival elements and farm animal showcases) fair in a few weeks.

Sunday Link Party!

Photo of the week:

I actually have new photos! My husband and I went to a fair yesterday and saw this chicken with lots of ribbons and a trophy.

Prize-Winning Bantam.

It's a prize-winning chicken.

The rest of the photos of my visit to the fair are here.

While I’m promoting my own stuff, I’d like to call out a post I wrote late last week for The Daily Wishlist. 5 tips for starting your holiday shopping now!

I’m going to Florida next month, and we’ve obtained reservations at Bern’s Steakhouse. If you’re in the Tampa area and looking for a great meal with some fabulous ambience, I highly recommend it.

If you read this blog, you know that I’m a massive fan of Mythbusters. Here’s a video of Adam Savage giving a presentation on obsessions at the Entertainment Gathering in December 2008.

Photo: NJ Meadowlands Fair, July 2009.

Took this last weekend. I put him in the middle of the frame, his hand is cut off, it is not tack sharp, I’m not following any rules of non-boring photography, but it is one of my favorites of the photos I’ve taken in quite some time. I love it.

Whole set is here on Flickr.
