On Monday, Aaron and I tagged along with the Herrero family for the 61st Annual Miami Dade County Fair and Exposition.
He's both nervous and excited.Intrigued by all the colors
First and foremost we went to the circus show. We saw some crazy stuff in there!

The Herreros are county fair enthusiasts. They bring their kids to the fair since they were little, and still come every year. They knew exactly what to eat, what shows to go to and what to avoid.

The only thing Aaron really wanted to do before we left was to shoot some hoops and win a prize.
Let's just say the prizes were lame anyway :)
This is exactly what it looks like. A krispy kreme doughnut + hamburger. We opted out of trying that out but we did eat our very first elephant ear.
We sure enjoyed ourselves and spending time with our friends. We ended the night by watching an ice skating show. It was both terrible and exciting. The highlight was see one of the male skaters pick his wedgie on stage.
It was fun to have a carnival experience and guess what it might be like to actually be a carney. It may not be a glamorous life but it's at least a good conversation starter.
