The Fair

We hit up the fair on its first weekend.

My mom offered to watch Ben while we went which was super nice. It goes without saying that the amount of enjoyment a 3 month old could get out of the fair is slim to none, not to mention the traffic involved. Ben no likey traffic.

I love the fair. I know- it's full of crowds and carnies and mullets and greasy food. The crowds I could do without (well, and the inflated prices) but everything else is golden.

Don't know what you think you're going to get with $1, sister.
Nothing within these gates.

They had some crazy foods this year, like fried watermelon.

And a booth devoted to bacon.

I enjoyed a carrot cake funnel cake.  It was delicious!

And don't forget to wash it all down with some diabetic lemonade.

Avery enjoyed a corn dog right off the bat.
How many corn dogs does it take to equal one Avery?
I say three.

We hit up the carousel and the petting zoo and the livestock barn. She even rode a pony.

We then took a lap around the expo building before calling it a day. That's where Avery ate an entire thing of popcorn by herself. I'm honestly not sure if she ate a fruit or vegetable all day. But hey, these things come around only once in a while.

Also, now she wants a pony.
