The State Fair

Standard

My wonderful husband was manipulated into indulged me in a night visit of the Alabama State Fair as I have never been to one.

I came, I saw, I ate. A gigantic corndog to be exact.

Apparently all state fairs needs a lion, tiger, and snakes. Snakes are omitted.

Who knew you could win bunnies at the fair? After the glare from the hubs, we moved on.

One of my favorite parts about the fair were the rides. The problem is/was that Lance hates rides with a passion. Finally, I convinced him to ride on the teacups with me.

Thankfully, I was tall enough.

We decided to pass on this beauty due to germ concerns.

All in all, we had a great time.

Have you ever been to the fair? What is your favorite part?

Camping

Standard

Can you tell that I have started back to teaching this fall? I haven’t had time to write a blog or read any either. Hopefully my ten hour work days will decrease sometime soon!

One of my favorite parts about the beginning of school is that two weeks into it, we get Labor Day! This year the hubs, mom, and step-dad decided to go camping. My brother and his girlfriend joined us for their first experience with us camping, too.

Unfortunately, this was out first night.

Now I know these pictures are terrible, but they were taken at 2 AM when were flooded out of our tent. If you look closely, you can see the three inches of standing water. Oops!

After that night, we considered packing our bags and making a run for it. I am glad we didn’t because we wouldn’t have experienced the rest of this!
