OC Fair Home Sweet Home Enter a comment to win!

Every time I go to the fair I have one or two vivid memories that stick with me forever. I remember that teenage kiss on the Farris Wheel at sunset.  I remember flying though the air on a giant sling shot with my husband as my daughter watched from the ground, afraid her parents would surely die.  I remember when my 5 year old son fell in love at first sight with an over sized stuffed animal and  insisted on throwing darts at balloons to win the object of his affection. I reluctantly gave in, knowing I was throwing away hard earned money and my little son would dissolve into tears when he lost...then POP! POP! POP! He wins the dog and the crowd erupts in applause for the pint sized dart champion.

Orange County is my Home Sweet Home and the OC Fair always provides wonderful family memories.  I asked my son his favorite memory of the fair and a big smile erupted, "All the baby animals!  They're soooo cute!"   Sweet memories, sweet food and laughter, sweet little baby animals.

We're taking our little animal lover to the fair this Sunday and we'd love to have you join in on the fun, so the OC Fair has given me a family 4 pack of tickets to give away!  All you have to do is leave a comment sharing your favorite memory of the fair.  A winner will be picked using random.org on the evening of Thursday, July 27th.

 Here are a few pics of some of our favorite memories from last year's fair.  Enjoy, then enter to win a day at the OC Fair!

Deep fried, chocolate covered bacon. Boyfriend Bob says it's really good! He didn't share any and I didn't break up with him. It must be love.

After food fest it was off to the midway for rides and games. The boys were determined to win some stuffed Angry Birds (my son's latest obsession)

Alex shares his love of Angry Birds with the nicest fair worker I've ever met. I love the truly family friendly atmosphere.

To the victors go the spoils...and the smiles.

Orange County Fair Fun House - Irvine

The kids' favorite: the Moscow Circus Fun House.  It got their repeat business and a huge thumbs up for three stories of ultimate kid fun, ending in a twirling slide back down to reality.
