Yesterday we went to the North Carolina State Fair.
We spent a couple of hours wandering around the grounds looking at the games and rides (yes, just looking – I refuse to ride something put together in a matter of hours).
Checking out the exhibitions. (How cute is this little guy on top of a hay pile having lunch.)
And enjoying a chuckle at the ever increasing amount of deep fried food options available (this year’s most “famous” new additions being mac & cheese and pecan pie. Seriously. I couldn’t make that up).
We even discovered you could buy various veggies such as broccoli deep fried (although, one might question how healthy they are after you deep fry them and dip them in ranch dressing. Just saying).
Found this poor fellow near the Expo Center where cows were being auctioned off. (Kind of ironic, don’t you think?)
And we ended our visit touring my favorite section – the flower and garden show. It’s like entering a whole new world as you wander the wooded paths between the exhibits.
All in all, we had a good time and look forward to next year.
