On Cotton Candy Apple Fun

Yesterday the boys were out of school 
AND 
it was $1 day at the Arkansas State Fair! 
(Guess what we did?)

Sunday was a beautiful day in the Natural State!
We started the morning at Pinnacle Mountain for Rendezvous
(a Mountain-Man/Native American celebration)

Blacksmith’s Shoppe
Then we went home for a “break” 
(where the boys showed me their newly learned bicycling skills)
and then off to the Arkansas State Fair!

Sunday we went to church with some good friends,
then out to lunch
and…
Good old-fashioned, 
southern,
Sunday fun!

The only veggies at the fair?
I love how everyone has a favorite part of the fair.  The animals, crafts, rodeo, junk food, rides, freak shows, games, or for me just the people watching.   They had a giant yo-yo ride that was a capsule attached to bungee cords- insane.  I thought about how I would have done that about 20 years ago.  Now?  
No way.  
Especially after the junk food. 

“Fair” Friday

Friday I checked the kids out of school a little early
(they were going to have to be out early anyway due to Race For the Cure setup downtown)
and we headed to the State Fair!

My honey and the kids tried such weirdness as chocolate covered bacon and fried Coke.
After all the rain we’ve had it was nice to just get outside.

The Himalaya!
