when i was younger our summer vacations consisted of spending a week or two up at my grandparents ranch. we would go to the beach, lake and the california mid state fair.
it sounds silly but i have such amazing memories of this fair. the rides, the food, the entertainment like seeing 98 degrees for free ... oh yea!
when we came home from the lake early and i heard that the fair had just started we decided to go. i could not have been more excited lol!
i am not dogging on disneyland (because i will LOVE the day we get to go). But we went to the fair on an impulse and for just a few hours, spending under $50.00 and my kids (and us) will have amazing memories like i have with my cousins. it is not always necessary to spend a fortune for elaborate vacations....ya know what i mean?!?
we were also lucky enough to see the fab four in concert (they were free that night..sweeet). they were amazing. if you have not heard of them, they are a beatles cover band. they were so good they had a disclaimer at the beginning of their concert that they were really performing live.
here are a few videos of our fair day.
