One of our favorite fall activities? Attending the NC State Fair. Last year may have been the first year I missed it since moving to Raleigh in the mid-90s. Somehow having a baby tends to take priority over a lot of things. 😉
This year, we attended for the first time as a family of four. Our son’s school had an early release day last Friday so we headed to the fairgrounds to spend the afternoon. We saw a few exhibits, shared a funnel cake (D’s choice), D rode several kiddie rides, and our daughter took it all in (plus had a little nap) all while cozied up to me in her carrier.
Knowing we’d only be there a few hours, I was trying to “travel light” which meant leaving the stroller in the car (smartest decision – far easier to maneuver with E in the carrier vs pushing the stroller through a crowd) and the DSLR at home. I did take our point & shoot camera which I used for most of the photos I took. However, one of my favorite is above and captured with my iPhone. Then edited in Photoshop. The sun didn’t peek through until late in our visit which made for a lot of “white sky” photos, but allowed the bright colors of the fair to shine.
Do you have a state (or local) fair that you enjoy attending?
