all's fair

it was the montgomery county fair this weekend, and i do not think i am alone in saying that there are few better reasons to drive to maryland than that.

the main objective of the evening was to eat as much fair food as possible. emily h. and i planned out the gastronomy very carefully and i am pleased to report that we did pretty well. the menu: grilled cheese sandwiches (with cheese from wisconsin!), a corn dog, fresh squeezed lemonade, a red icee (what flavor are those? fruit punch?), cotton candy, deep fried oreos and a funnel cake, which happened to be ryan's first.

then i barfed.

ok, not really. but i sort of felt like i wanted to.

in between eating, we ran into millions of mormons, pet some sheep, watched a pig auction (pigs are huuuge!), goaded ryan into playing the strong man game and talked about riding the ferris wheel, though we never got around to actually doing it.

i also came to the conclusion that nerdy dads should not leave the house wearing t-shirts that say things like, "keg security guy" and "fast, easy, cheap." especially not if those dads are headed out of the house with their kids. talk about embarassing-slash-creepy.

otherwise, it was a fair evening at the fair and that is all i have to say about that.

love the fair. last weekend we went to the wisconsin state fair and it sounds like we had similar food experiences! corn dogs, grilled cheese, corn on the cob, and a world famous cream puff ... yum!
