We Went To The Fair Today

Gosh I've only been to the fair twice in the last 12 years or so. It was a lot of fun taking the kids. We rode the ginormous slide, I almost barfed after ingesting a lemon shake up and I got to go to the potty with a 25lb, 16 month old strapped to my back-never did that before!

But seriously the kids had so much fun. They've never ridden amusement park rides before and so this was especially special. You'd think I would have brought a camera with us but no. It was interesting trying to find gluten free foods at the fair. Ahh sure I could have roasted corn on the cob but I was really craving protein and instead indulged in the Potroast Sundae, minus the gravy. Oh yeah a pot roast sundae. What the hell is that you wonder? Well it's shredded potroast, tender and actually very tastey, then mashed potatoes ontop and then gravy with a cherry tomato ontop of that, all served in a bowl to boot. It was fancy and yummy. However it did not do my stomach well, hence going to the potty with a 25lb baby strapped to my back-tmi...I know already. It was quite humorous in the potty. Baby J got a hold of the toilet paper at one point and just kept pulling and pulling, until there was a big pile. I pretty much let him have free reign of the toilet paper cause aye he was stuck to my back while I was on the pot.

Some in our group, not me, tried fried mac and cheese, fried ravioi, fried meatballs, fried potatoes, fried crab rangoon. Deep fried heaven right? I did see deep fried candy bars, deep fried smores & deep fried buckeyes. Sorry Rachel I didn't see the deep fried pickles but I'm sure they were there somewhere. I had a lemon shakeup and it was all she wrote between that and the Potroast Sundae, I stuck to unsweetened tea the last 4 hours of time we were there.

We had a blast and I'm excited to go again next year, I'm beat now. But I must shred. Have a great weekend.

Pot roast sundae...hmmm, sounds like a clever idea for dinner! I think I'll have to try that.

And, Momma Bear, you need a camera phone. Perfect for the times you forget the camera.

The fair was fun! I hadn't been in years. I am really wishing I saw a.) deep fried pickles, and b.) tried said "fried cap'n crunch" mentioned by BoLOGna.

Momma Bear said...

Sounds like fun. I'm looking forward to our fair. It's not here till mid-September so we have a little while to wait. :) Cute photos.
