The Kansas State Fair always seems like such a magical place to me. It's the only time of year that buying a pink cowboy hat to wear seems completely reasonable. We get to pet and make friends with all sorts of animals.
We eat ridiculously unhealthy food and love every moment. Its magical to watch the salt-water taffy being made and its the only place that a person would believe that a corn dog is actually a banquet on a stick. We forgot to try a fried snickers bar, but had plenty of cotton candy, taffy, corn dogs, nachos, kettle corn . . .
The kids love the rides. We have to ride the poky little train every year and it was their first year to try a fairly tame roller coaster.
