Fair-tastic by Sara & Jon Bauer
Mornings at the fair
There is nothing like getting in the fair before the other 95% of that day's go-ers get near the gates. There is a certain comraderie among those that seek out breakfast as soon as the booths begin to open.
Yearly new food items
Yes we have our favorites but it is always an adventure seeking out the year's new delights. This year we enjoyed chicken fried bacon.
Whether you say you are 'saving calories all week' or 'walking it off by being at the fair all day,' everyone has their way of justifying it. Let's face it, we all have our favorites and we all over-indulge because On-A-Stick only comes once per year. (See, there it is again)
Lets face it, everybody does it. I'm sure people have watched us too.
Four Favorite Years by Sara
1989 ... NKOTB at the Grandstand
I was only 12. My mom took my best friend and I to see the New Kids on the Block at the Grandstand. Tiffany & Tommy Page were the opening acts. I'll never forget the experience... My first *rock* concert.
199-something... The Teen Years
Every summer my church's youth-group went to the fair. We had "adult" chaperones & we were all grouped with 3 or 4 friends and an adult... My b/f/f and I always spent the time ditching our chaperone & looking for cute boys (that we would never EVER dare talk to.). Amazingly - the chaperone always found us.
2002 - Weight Watchers and the Fair
The ultimate oxymoron? My hubby & I were determined to enjoy the fair while being faithful to our Weight-loss program. We printed out a list of fair-foods and their approximate W.W. points-value (do NOT ask about the cheese-curds). Nothing like sharing one Strawberry Malt at the Dairy Barn! We did it! Stayed in points (& continued to loose almost 200 pounds together that year)
2006 - Doctor's Permission
I was 8 1/2 months pregnant during the 2006 fair. My husband and mother would not allow me to go without the permission of my doctor. Doc gave me the green light and said "Watch what you eat & take it slow... rest often".
