Fair Food

Next to the cute little goats I think the best thing about the fair is the food.  At least looking at it!

Everything is big and deep fried at the fair.  Check out this 16 inch long corn dog.  There was a 24 inch long one too.  Don't know this guy but I asked if I could take a picture of his corndog!

Then there was the humongous elephant ear!

And the monster fry brick!!!

I opted for the delicious bloomin onion.  I even got to watch them make it.
I shared!

Then there were the huge turkey legs and the roasted corn on the cob.

Only at the fair - if it is not deepfried it is dipped in chocolate.

A fun day with our friends.

The girls:

The boys - Larry was having a hard time keeping his eyes open for a photo!

The State Fair

Saturday Jim and I and our friends the Jensens headed south to the Oregon State Fair.  I think it has been about 20 year since we have been there!

It was hot and sunny. 

We checked out the animals first - I must say I think the goats were my favorite.

They even decorate their pen areas - I love that!

 I thought the cows were pretty and so clean!

The horses made me sneeze!

My favorite though was the building with all the food entries!  A gal in our stake had entered a pie and won first place!

The food entries had been there for a couple of weeks and they were looking a little old and dried out.

The cake decorating contest...

Next year I decided I'm entering the lego contest.

I thought maybe Jim should enter some of his garden produce too.
 Or maybe some flowers from our garden.

But my absolute favorite was the display of all the canned goods - it all looked so pretty and delicious!


While I was in Utah last week I was able to take some photos of my darling great niece Jacky.  She was baptized on Saturday and I was so sad I couldn't be there but I hope she knows I was there in thought and spirit!  The kids were able to attend the baptism and Logan and Cali sang.

We went over to the Mt. Timp temple on Sunday to take the photos.  She is such a pretty little girl it was hard to pick just a few so I'm going to show you a lot!!  Love you Jacky girl!!
