Fun Times at the Fair

Okay- I know the fair has been gone for a couple of weeks now, but I’m trying to get caught up on my blogging. I always have lots of great blog ideas, but I’m really missing the key ingredient of… time. Not to mention, it’s not always fun to write in the afternoon and on the weekends when you already write for a living every weekday.

A couple of weeks ago, my fiance wanted to go to the fair. It’s kinda embarrassing… but this was my first fair since I was a really, really young child. Like, 5-6 years old young- so it’s not like I remember it much.

Growing up, my parents took me to a lot of theme parks- Busch Gardens, King’s Dominion, Disney World, Dollywood (I insist- it’s not some kind of redneck shebang- Dollywood is pretty awesome!), even Ghost Town in the Sky (This one makes me feel old). I always rode the kiddie rides, but never anything really crazy, and only a few roller coasters, but the fair was one thing we never really did.

So, I guess I was pretty excited for the experience of it, not to mention the admission and unlimited rides for $20 hand stamp.

Minus this crazy ride where Clay almost lost his hat. I didn't ride it.

We rode a lot of rides, but since I’m really careful a wuss, I wouldn’t ride certain things like the above ride.  I hate to take any chances on seeing my food in a form that it shouldn’t be seen in, ya know?  Most of the rides at the fair were really great though, and we definitely got our money’s worth out of those unlimited ride hand stamps.  We also had a lot of fun in the Fun Houses.

This one reminds me of that TLC Show, "Little People Big World".

And finally a tall/stretchy mirror!

Along with crazy mirrors, we saw lots of crazy foods.  Along with the stereotypical fried oreos and twinkies, popcorn, pizza, and funnel cakes, there was Fried Butter (which I didn’t get a picture of, but walking by the sign, I could feel my arteries clog a little) and this:

Somehow I don't see donuts and burger tasting good, but I don't think I'm the target audience, either.

The "Fried Everything" Stand

Oh, and there were lots of animals.  Yay animals!

Go Cocks!

Not to mention Mountain Dew…

Both of us secretly wish they really made it in this size...

But the best part of the fair was probably the most drool worthy food of the night for us.  We like simple classics…

The infamous funnel cake!

Until next year…
