Every year we would go to the Eden Parade the first sunday in August when I was a kid. I LOVED it. The day before I would decorate my candy bag and make my sibilings do the same. I would always use my ride tokens to go on the craziest, dizziest rides.

We joked that they shared the same hairstyle.
Maggie (with my mom in the photo below) also met the Italian sausage of the famous Klements Racing Sausages:

Now I am just hoping that I won the cow or pig in the Fireman's Raffle. (My bro is a volunteer fireman and always hits us up for raffle tix.)
