the Del Mar Fair in San Diego is always one of the first things I do in the summer. the scary rides, weird smells, and hard-to-win prizes make summer feel official and it is something I look forward to every year. this year my boyfriend and I went together for the first time and I had such a great time. we got some kettle corn, rode the swings until we were dizzy, and he even won me a cute stuffed animal at a balloon popping game! it was perfect cloudy weather and not super crowded so we barely had to wait in lines for anything. and I can’t wait until I get to go again next year.
