Saturday fun activity: Where IS this?


     Summer is going fast. Have you been away? Made any plans to get away? Perhaps to the ... well, where is this thing, silhouetted against the summer twilight? It shouldn't be that difficult: how many of these are there? But maybe it'll take a few tries. Maybe not. Either way, post your guesses below. The winner gets a limited edition 2015 blog poster, suitable for tacking onto the wall. Good luck.

    1. Missed it by THAT much, evidently, Amy. Seems like practically a tie to me. I think you should at least get a 3x5 photo of the cherished blog poster. : )

  8. We went to the Iowa State Fair last summer, and it was a nice time. The sky ride was fun. I agree with Anon 8:46 comment, the Illinois fair was better, and yes, the cream puffs were one of the reasons!

    1. I think you mean Wisc. Sandy. I've tried a couple of County Fairs too. They don't hold a candle to those W. puffs. There goes my cholesterol count.

    2. Oops, yeah, I meant "Wisconsin" fair has the good cream puffs!

  9. I grew up around Springfield and have ridden the State Fair sky ride many times. Totally worth trying at least once during the fair.
