Colorado State Fair

Last Tuesday, September 1st Taylor, Marianne, Phil and I went to the Colorado State Fair. We got a sitter and left the kids at home. It was Dollar Days at the fair. Meaning it was a $1 to enter instead of $5 and all rides were $1 as well instead of $4-$6 per ride. Also, parking was $10 for the preferred lot or $7 for the south lot. We parked in the south lot because I heard on the radio how to get free parking. It was fantastic that we got free parking and that parking lot also had a free shuttle that picked us up at our car and dropped us off at the front gate. It was perfect! We ended up only riding on a handful of rides. We made a mistake and ate right before so we really couldn't handle much. Nonetheless, we still had a great time.

Phil and Marianne

Marianne and Taylor getting on this crazy ride that I was too chicken for.

While they were on the ride Phil and I hung out in the chicken corner. Actually Phil didn't want to go on any of the rides. He was content just walking around and enjoying the food.

Not the greatest picture, but the group on the right at the bottom is Marianne. She is in a white top and pink/red color pants. Taylor is the group on the bottom closest to Marianne. Can't see him at all.

Marianne and I on the Octopus. Actually it probably wasn't called that. That is what I called it though. It was one of the longest rides since it takes awhile to load people on. We had a lot of fun and couldn't stop laughing the whole time.
