I love the fair. I really love it. We go every year and it never dissapoints. I've been going since I was a kid. My Mom would drop Lanie, Rayline and I off when they first opened and we'd spend all day cruising around and doing our thing.
In my adult life it has become a tradition to go as close to the first day as possible because you blink and the whole thing is over. Matt and I always go with Shane, Fi and Eva and have the best time. Nothing beats getting a nice cold beer at the blues bbq place and munching on some grilled corn with butter and parmesan cheese. It's something I look forward to every year.
Another bonus is the live music. Last year Fi, Claudia, Shirley and I went and saw G Love and the Special Sauce at Pacific Ampitheater. It was totally amazing. We walked there from my house and sat outside in the sunshine, drinking beers and rocking out. The next night Fi, Claudia and I went back for more. This time it was to see Chris Cornell. That was Ama-za-zing.
But the best time we always have is with Shane and Fi, hands down. So every year, it can't wait for the fair. I can't come soon enough. Well, turns out I don't have to wait that long.
