A Day Trip from Mesa, Arizona - The Arizona State Fair (Just 30 Minutes West of Mesa)

I can't believe it's time for the Arizona State Fair again.  Every year, my sisters and I and my mother - who is 90 - get together and go to the Fair. Last year, we brought my little brother - well, he is 56 now - and we had a ball. We drive mother around in her wheel chair, and until last year would take turns since she wanted to walk around and we would ride. It was a crack up watching people's reactions as one of us would stand up to look at something on the display cases.

I took pictures from last year, but can't find them since I have a new computer. When I do find them, I'll share. Anyway, we all wear the same color T-Shirt so we can find each other. Last year there were five of us girls, mom and my brother.

Hopefully some of you in our area will take some time to go. It begins on October 10 and ends November 2. We generally go the third week of October as it cools down a bit.  See you there? ;-)
