Ah, the state fair. Loves it! Pete and I decided to go on a Saturday and explore the goodness that is fried food, crazy exhibits, and stinky animals. It was SO much fun!
The cow and "Abraham Lincoln" made of butter. PURE BUTTER. Gross. And if you get a good luck down at the bottom of the case, there is just...BUTTER. Butter that looks like grass. It was disgusting but I couldn't stop looking at it and taking pictures.
Pigs running wild! They were on their way to the pig show, from their pens. Cute!
I just think this picture of Pete is funny.
Pete just had to take a picture of me coming out of the Porta-Potty.
The Lumberjack contest! Amazing! Our guy (pictured) was a cutie pie! Oh, and he won the contest overall. The above picture if him in the axe-throwing contest.
Then they did a pole-climbing contest.
The food contests crack me up. I think it's so cool that people get to taste hundreds of entries of cakes, chicken dishes, all kinds of stuff.
This was the grand-prize winning cake. Cute!
I bought the cookbook.
I've always loved the look of amusement parks and carnivals at night. We spent a good amount of time in the ride-area at dusk and on.
This is really the best part of the fair, in my opinion. We ate a ton of junk. But it was so good.
Pete waiting in line for cheese curds.
The best corn dogs from the best stand there. Kyle was right.
As usual, Pete ate his much faster than I did.
We were lucky - we picked a day to go to the fair that was just beautiful! Except it was hot. But we did have a beautiful, blue sky that matched the bright reds and oranges of the food stands perfectly.
COTTON CANDY. And can I just say, it came in a bag. So sad. I even asked if they had sticks, but they didn't. It was sad. But still delicious.
All in all, it was a great day! Tiring but wonderful.
