fairs.

I LOVE love LOVE fairs!!! 
Everything about them.  Maybe it is because I seem to be stuck in a five year olds mind, but everything about rides, junk food, bright lights, and HUGE stuffed animals puts a big smile on my face.  Who has seen The Notebook?! When I go to a fair I like to pretend I am in that movie.  I could definitely settle for being Rachel McAdams! 

Do you ever wonder where all the people who work the fairs aka "carnies" are from? I had never really taken a moment to stop and think about it,  I just thought maybe they were locals?! I dunno.  I started talking to some of the "carnies" and was surprised to know they are from all over the world.  Most I met were South Africans!! how cool?! I want to go work in a foreign country and work on a ferris wheel...... maybe one day!
