Cotton Candy, Ice Cream and Funnel Cakes

Last night we went to the County Fair... Geoff, Elizabeth, Cub, Momma and myself. It was a lot of fun, and we all enjoyed the cotton candy, bucket 'o fries, ice cream and rides. The kids picked up ducks to "win" a prize, and fished for sharks to win yet another prize.

Oh yeah, and at one game we gambled with quarters, putting them on our favorite colored circles, then a mouse decided if we won or not... he was a cute mouse, but we lost.

We came home with two plastic swords, two princess crowns, a "pow pow" gun and a sheet of princess stickers, but it was the fun they had in winning them that counted. The grins on their faces and sweet laughter was worth a million bucks (probably what we all forked out throughout the evening!)... the fair was a huge success.

The kids favorite ride of the whole fair was the High Jump... Elizabeth said she "felt like Tinkerbelle" she flew so high into the sky, and Cub declared he was "going REAL high like Spiderman"...

In fact, there were so many great pictures that I couldn't choose between many of them... I had to, or this post would have been way too long, so here are the ones that made the cut! Geoff took many of these with a cool setting on the camera...








Have a great weekend, yall - we are going to a family reunion at the lake!

Glad you have fun. I always look forward to our state fair.

I am glad you did not bring home any gold fish... although that is always fun too!

Angela,
Thank you for your pumpkin bread recipe in Reynie's cookbook. It was easy to make and delicious.

Hey Angela! It truly is a small world! I remember Geoff T. I remember Lee T. too. Ha Ha She helped out with the colorguard (majorettes) while I was in the band. Yes, she was good friends with my aunt, Debbie, in high school. I remember when I was little Lee used to come over to my Granny's house all the time.
