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.

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.
