*Cashing in our retirement funds to let the kids ride a few rides on the Midway. Let it be known that I don't trust carney rides AT ALL. I love amusement parks and rides (except for my ferris wheel phobia) but I just don't trust carney rides. Say what you will but as the kids each picked out the rides they were going to do I gave them the warning, "Well that one doesn't look too bad but you still might die on it. Are you REALLY sure you want to ride it?" They just rolled their eyes and dared to ride the ride and SURVIVED, thankfully. Not me, I watched anxiously on the sidelines. No way was I getting on one of those things. Not to mention we could've spent a week at Disney World for what it costs to ride a few rides at the fair. Rip off.
But the price of the monkey tails (bananas dipped in chocolate) totally worth it just for this picture. They came up with this pose all on their own.
*Watching the city folks, watch the birth of pigs, cows, sheep, and goats in the Nursery Center. Having been a city girl once myself I understand the look of horror and shock as an arm is wedged into a cow to help deliver a calf but now that I'm a converted country girl, I'm completely fascinated with the whole farm animal birthing thing and can't wait to have more babies (of the animal species) on our farm. The funny part was as some of the city folk parents were covering their children's eyes to shield them from the gore of animal birth, our hillbilly children didn't even bat an eye. After all, they know how it all happened, someone showed that mama "who's boss."
THIS shall be a future addition to the Koons Zoo and shall be named Honky Tonk Zedonk a Donk. (I'd take the camel in the background too.) Don't you think we NEED one of these? Please comment and cast your vote. I have yet to convince GI Joe of it's necessity so maybe the petition format is the way to go. I need your support. Thank you.
