Meet Me At the Fair

We had a great time at the North Carolina State Fair today! Connor discovered the joy of cheese fries today at the fair. Here's a list of the fair foods we indulged in today: 1 corn on the cob, 1 steak gyro, 1 cheese fry, 1 Italian sausage dog, 1 cotton candy, 1 ice cream, and one North Carolina Barbecue sandwich. Delicious.
Rain, Rain Go Away...

The heaven's opened for the first time in 5 mths and poured baby, poured. We found shelter under a tent next to a Baptist Church Recruiting Center and had a nice talk with an elderly man named R.C. Looking back, it's funny that we were the only 3 people under there while hundreds of others were trying to cram under the eaves of buildings. Guess we were the only brave ones. We had plenty of room to spread out, that's for sure!
When we left Chapel Hill in the morning is was nice and sunny, who knew we needed ponchos? Connor loved playing in the rain and mud though and the sun came out and dried us all off as the morning went by. It brought me back to trips to Kings Island with my family growing up and getting drenched and moving forward with fun. Nothing was going to get in our way of a good time and good food!




Here's Connor chowing down on his corn on the cob. Yum.
We had a such a great time and already can't wait to make another trip next year. I feel a new family tradition coming on!

The corn on the cob is my favorite! Way to stay away from the fried Snickers bars. Who needs that?
