Grand Times at the Ohio State Fair

Yes I know, the State Fair has been over for a few days...okay, it has been like a week...but I have been busy sitting on my couch in my pajamas eating a 3 lb bag of candy this week.  Now that I am finished with the bag and my jeans are a little snugger, I am ready to write about all the joy that the fair brought to me.

Lets start here with the reason that we all load our families into the car and walk around in the smothering Summer heat.   FOOD!  Funnel cakes, barbecue, batter dipped things on sticks, fried everything!  Really, is there anything better in the world than fair food?

Upon walking by this area, I immediately began drooling in delight.

Oh thank you little piggy for supplying us with your wonderful pork products.

Mmmmm German Roasted Almonds and Jumbo Turkey Legs.  Can I mix those together?

This kid made me laugh, he was so excited by the Lego City!

Being the Great Chicken Lover of Southern Ohio, I had a blast going through the enormous chicken house.

Im so jealous of this pretty hens hair.  It is so beautiful and puffy without hair spray.

Another fine hair specimen.

Hello Georgeous!

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources had an awesome area that you could walk around and meet the native animals of Ohio.  On display was a very antsy coyote which was housed right next to the bobcat.  They had all kinds of birds and bats and even bald eagles!
I really enjoyed the butterfly house.  I need to find out who their gardener is.

An attempt at "real" photography.  I tried to catch this little guy in flight, but my aperture and ISO were all messed up, since I have no idea how to adjust aperture or what exposure compensation really is...this is the result I ended up with.

There is so much to explore at the Ohio State Fair. I could go on and on but I would risk boring what few readers I actually have and that would be terrible!  If you are looking for a great time to be had by the whole family, pack them up and take them to the fair.  Make some memories today.
