My Royalty . . .

"If you ever start feeling like you have the goofiest, craziest, most dysfunctional family in the world, all you have to do is go to a state fair. Because five minutes at the fair, you'll be going, 'you know, we're alright. We are dang near royalty.'"

Kansas State Fair Time is here again!  My husband and I have started a new tradition?  Last year after Clay got a new prosthetic leg and was a new man who golfed again and walked again, we decided to head to the State Fair.  We had a great time!  This year we wanted to ask our daughter Casey and our son-in-law Tracy to go with us.  Too late in the game to find a motel in Hutchinson, KS so we checked into a Holiday Inn Express in McPherson, KS.  If you have never stayed in one - this one was awesome.  I'm not sure what the "express" part was because we surely had all of the amenities!

I was looking forward to a cool, sunshiny day as we have had a heat wave of a summer, but we were blessed with a cool, overcast, and cloudy day instead.  Still perfect!  We soon began to look at and dream over the campers, four-wheelers, boats, cross-overs, tractors, and of course food.  I did remain basically true to my healthy eating plan (basically).  

The main event of the day was our surprise to the kids that we had tickets for the Jake Owen and Billy Currington concert.  It was a fantastic concert!  Renewed my love for country music, especially when they sang some of our favorite "Alabama songs"!!  

We had a great day hanging out with our "royalty" as Jeff Foxworthy talks about in the above quote.  We felt truly blessed!  Having adult children who are your best friends is a God-given gift.

And on that note . . . I am planning our next trip to the tip of Texas to spend some time with the other half of our "royal family"!

Blessings from the Kansas State Fair - - - Enjoy YOUR royalty!
