Growing up, going to the fair was a highlight of my year. As a kid I would submit things in exhibits at the fair to be judged: quilts, baskets, cookies, artwork, etc. And there was nothing better than walking into the exhibit arena and seeing one of my creations with a ribbon pinned on it.
The fair brings back so many great memories. I love everything about it...the smells, the cheesy rides, the smell of hay, the animals, the food, the not-so-great performers singing loudly over the sound system. Love love love it.
So, here are some images from our day at the fair:
There was a girl hanging from a helicopter.
It took me a while to decide if it was cool, or just plain stupid.
I decided on the later.
Um, as much as I love fair food...
you couldn't pay me enough money to eat one of these things!
HOT BEEF SUNDAE...really?
Jonathan found our new lawn mower. :)
Moriah wanted me to go on the swings with her.
I think I had the most fun out of all those kids.
I am so glad that we got to go, because it looks like this might have been the last year of the Tennessee State Fair. :( True, it wasn't the best fair I've ever been to (and it was slightly overpriced)...but it was still a great, memorable day together.
