A place for all things I love...

The Fair... (Mexican Style)

This weekend Jeremy & I stayed in mexico, since I will be going home to Utah for a week next weekend.
Friday night we had a lazy night & and I loved it actually! It consisted of:
watching the jazz game.
hawaiian pizza. yum.
mini martinelli's. so cute.
otter pop's for dessert.
cuddling to sleep.

Saturday was a lot more eventful. We slept in till ten. (Well together anyways, I always wake up around ten.. lazy I know) Then we ventured off to the pool where Jer played water volleyball with the old folks and I listened to my ipod which I never seem to get to do anymore. Then golf. blah. We went to a new restaurant in town that has real food. Real good food for that matter, so I was so happy about that. All the time we ran into a bunch of people we knew so it was fun feeling social :) Then we went to Al's place and played some pool. Though I am not even remotely good at playing pool it keeps me entertained none the less.

 So this is where are night gets good. Or should I say bad. I guess it depends on which way you look at it?

Jeremy & and I found ourselves at the FAIR.  Let's be honest, though they can be kinda fun and cute fairs are mostly ghetto.  Well so if you mexicanize the fair it's basically just down right scary. First we decided to go on a ride that I quite like at lagoon.
This is before the ride started... when we were still smiling..
So on this particular ride it goes around in a circular motion and depending on which way you lean your specific seat can spin around fast or slowly sway from side to side. When I have been on the one at lagoon it lasts maybe 45 seconds. Not at a mexican fair..

This is what I experienced for over 5 minutes. I said 5 MINUTES. At least that's what it felt like.. That is a long time to be spinning around and around and around. We were laughing and enjoying ourselves at first.. and then it just kept going and going. We looked at the carni working our ride and he just looked back at us like we were getting our money's worth.
It was awful and we felt awfully sick afterward.

Next we played some darts. It was basically a really expensive game, that was impossible to win, with the most ghetto prizes I have ever seen.

So though I begged Jeremy no more rides he insisted we couldn't waste our tickets. So after my stomach had semi settled we went on this. 
Only to be put in a horribly sicker state. 
You can imagine what this ride does which is basically sway forward and back until you make a full circle.  What I did not expect was for it to keep stopping at the top of its swinging motion with the bar smashing your stomach. Along with the fact that like the previous ride it went on and on. I was so close to vomiting it makes me queasy just thinking about it. We immediately went home after this and I laid in bed holding my stomach and groaning until I fell asleep.

So I learned my lesson. Though Fair's can look cute and fun, I think we should leave the rides to the little tikes. Adult stomachs are just not made for this.
