Oh boy we found some dirt!
Last week we took a chance to step aside and enjoy some class here in Peoria. "What's that" You say? Why my friend, nothing other than the Heart of Illinois Fair! You notice the flames coming out of that car's exhaust? Demolition derby baby! Nuthin' like watching a bunch of old cars ram each other until only one still goes! Tiff didn't quite believe how simple it is until she saw it, luckily she has me to introduce her to this kind of thing. She makes me use a napkin, and I take her to the derby, what a pair! Anyway, they make 'em muddy out here, luckily we sat a few rows up and out of the way (the pic didn't turn out quite right. And that is a real elephant, kicking a real beach ball, into a real person. And you can't forget the Mud-drags! Nothing like a watching a jacked up truck try its hardest to get through a mud track a few feet deep, get yanked out by a tractor and try again! We also witnessed first hand that you actually can buy a deep fried twinkie or snickers bar (are you supposed to eat it?), and we're pretty sure we saw someone changing clothes inside an empty corral, not all that private but I guess it was good enough in a pinch.
Tiff was sold on this mower, I tried to talk her into a Honda, but she wouldn't have it. Luckily we don't have grass.
And these bears made from K'nex won Grand Prize in the "Crafts made from toys or whatever" exhibit
