We went on a sojourn to the county fair. I say sojourn because we were there for about 7 hours. The grown ups wanted to see the farm animals, pies, jams and quilts. The kids wanted to go on the rides, of course! So, we did a bit of both. The rain forest exhibit was refreshingly cool and filled pretty tame critters.
The basic ferris wheel. Basic or not, I still didn't go on it. When I was a kid, it was the last straw before all the other rides and junk food I ate revolted from all the sloshing and g-forces.
I didn't of go on this one either but it was the last ride for those who did at the end of our day. I'm sure the kids enjoyed the feeling of flying and the cooling effect of being swirled through the air.
