Sonoma County Fair

Last weekend we went (okay, so we dragged Peter) to the Sonoma County Fair in Santa Rosa. It turned out to be a pretty good time complete with corn dogs, funnel cakes, Wack-A-Mole, and a nausea inducing ride on the Tilt-A-Whirl, a personal childhood favorite. I didn't win any stuffed animals, and the Destruction Derby was a little weak (sorry Brett, but it was) but good times were had by all.

A glimpse of the Destruction Derby.  
You are probably asking yourself, what exactly am I looking at?  Believe me, EP and I were asking the same question.  

Brett and P. taking in all the action at the Derby.

Who doesn't love a corn dog with some curly fries?

We paid 50 cents to have a peek at this ginormous pig.  It was worth it.  
I think he looks a little bit like John Madden. 

A glimpse of the Tilt-A-Whirl in action. I know it doesn't look like much, but throw in a corn dog and a funnel cake with some centrifugal force, and that is just a good time! Brett happens to have his hands on some footage that I am afraid I am going to have to pay good money to get him to delete it.
