We all got ride bracelets which gave us UNLIMITED use of all the rides! WOo!! We began with the super spinny one that pins you against the wall, I can't remember the name of it but it is always quite the experience, then we went on a rocket ride that brings you up high then drops you, always a classic, then we willingly got strapped into the sketchiest looking little catches and rode the Zipper, that one is one of my favorites, then we rode the pirate boat that rocks back and forth, we even got the coveted back row! Then we decided that was enough rides for a while, you can only handle so many of those fun filled fair rides ...
When we got closer we were like, is that ....
And yes, it was, President Monson himself having a chat about raising pigeons with a gentlemen over a row of cages. He is so awesome!!! We waited in the small crowd that had gathered around him but he was very into his conversation and then he got on his golf cart and was driven away. It was a neat experience just to be near him and to see him at a place like the state fair, just enjoying the simple things in life. Seriously what an amazing man he is.
This rabbit was the softest thing I have ever felt in my entire life, it was almost like I wasn't petting anything at all! I almost stole him, out of all the animals I wanted to take home with me he would have been the easiest to take ... haha
After animal time it was Farris wheel time! We got some great views of the entire fair all lit up!
After the wheel we went hang gliding! Well we went on a ride that was like hang gliding, it was a total blast one of my favorites of the night for sure
Look at these, are they not fantastic. Bethy creates magic with her camera.
The last thing we needed to do to make our fair experience complete was get caramel apples. Bethy decided to get a candy apple since we discovered that we had never actually experienced one before. When I went to buy my caramel apple I didn't have any cash and all the ATM machines had been turned off for the night, so the sweet girl at the food stand said that I could just have it for free, I love people that are so nice like that, definitely made my night.
Such a blast! I love having fun and going to exciting things! The state fair gave us a wonderful night of fun! Can't wait till next year!
