The Illinois Beef Expo is held in Springfield, Il each year. We don't have beef cattle, but so many of our friends do, that we decided this year to make a weekend out of it and joined friends at a Springfield hotel for a weekend of cattle, swimming and hanging out.
What's a trip to Springfield without a trip to Scheels? What's a trip to Scheels without a ride on the ferris wheel and a spin through the presidential characters and maybe even sitting through a simulated Nascar race?
This year may have been the last on the ferris wheel for this boy. Not a fan of stopping at the top. Just like his mama I guess.
Then these animated, moving, realistic, totally awesome and completely creepy figures of the presidents.
Eeek. Not sure he was a fan of them either.
We did manage to spend a mere 3 hundo on running shoes for the big kids' upcoming track season. Now THAT is scary!
