NC State Fair!

This past Monday we went to the NC State Fair with the Simpson family. I now realize that the state fair is much more fun when you go with little kids who are excited about the rides and the petting zoo, etc. If Andrew and I had gone by ourselves it would not have been as fun as going with this Simpsons and their little girls that we love so much! The only thing I really look forward to at the fair is the FOOD! Andrew and I had a huge turkey leg (I've always wanted one but never got one in the past) and of course, a funnel cake. I was so excited for that funnel cake all day, and it definitely met my expectations. Anyway, we basically saw all the animals, went to the petting zoo, ate food, and watched the girls go on the rides. We didn't stay that long but it was worth going and we had a great time. Here are just a few pictures from the fair:
