One of my favorite things about the Oklahoma State Fair is the food.
My Mom comes out every year for the Oklahoma State Fair. Usually there is always a Disney On Ice show that we see. This year it was Disney On Ice: Let's Celebrate.
Natalie brought her light up toy that we bought 3 years ago at Disney On Ice for $20. I refuse to purchase another. And I see they've gone up in price ($22 now.) So if your child will want a light up toy and you don't want to fork over $22, bring one from home.
The food sold there is also overpriced, but it's to be expected. Cotton candy with Mickey ears is $12. I bought Natalie a sno cone for $12. But I think Disney tries to make you feel better about spending an obscene amount by giving you something to take home. With the sno cone, you get to keep the cup. Yay!
The show was entertaining, as always.
Natalie was so excited to see Maleficent:
"She just needs to stop being cranky," Natalie told me seriously.
Another fantastic show! Natalie approves. And yes, she's aching to see the Frozen Disney On Ice but it isn't in our area yet. Maybe next year for the fair? *Hint hint Disney*
We returned to the State Fair on Saturday for the rides. And more food.
The thing about Natalie? She wants to go on EVERY ride. She gets insulted when she's not tall enough. "But I won't be scared!" she pouts. I explain it's a safety thing. Does she want to slip out and go flying through the air? "Sounds like fun," she answers. *Le sigh*
She was miffed that she wasn't tall enough to go on this slide. "But I wouldn't fall! I know how to go down a SLIDE!"
Tommy happily went on it.
Natalie wasn't tall enough to go on the swings that went high on the air so she had to settle for this.
Notice the jackets? It was COLD Saturday morning. Like 60 degrees. Oklahoma is confusing us.
This man scared me. He was at the haunted house. Which Natalie went on. Alone, since Tommy was on another ride she wasn't tall enough for. She came out and was all, "An evil clown tried to scare me. It didn't work."
I even went on one ride. We bought the kids unlimited ride armbands. I just bought tickets for one.
It was a ride that went round and round. I'm getting old, guys. My poor head was still spinning afterwards.
So what did we have to eat?
A plate of fried food! That's fried pickles. Fried ravioli. Fried mac n cheese. Fried mashed potatoes.
I loved it all.
A fried Twinkie. In the past I've also tried fried oreos and fried butter. Both are superb. The kids had the funnel cake.
There were people everywhere when we went but we still had a fantastic time.
I'm already looking forward to next year.
And if you're nearby? The fair runs until the 21st of September.
Go get a fried treat and think of me when you eat it.
