July 31, 2008 Opening day of State Fair!

We went to the State Fair on Thursday. Since I'm the only one that doesn't eat cream puffs, I documented the moment. Don't they look like they're enjoying the food? We bought lots of stuff like my sushi maker as documented on my Japan site. I also got Wiggle cars for school, but I've been test driving them to make sure they are safe! We also took the obligatory ride on the giant slide. Debbie was kind enough to give up riding to take a few pictures.
We all took off at the same time, but Judy won the race!

Of course I also had to try the new fair food - deep fried macaroni and cheese. I liked it. I also had a cherry sundae, and sample of bison burrito meat, corn on the cob, cranberry juice and a cranberry cookie. Gotta love the fair!

Racine Zoo Walkabout Creek

The Racine Zoo has added an Australian exhibit. It has a high wooden fence around the whole exhibit to keep the animals in, but they are free to wander anywhere inside. That includes on the path where you are walking. They have four red kangaroos, a couple of walaroos, emus, and black swans.
