VA State Fair

You know you're at the fair when everything is fried. 

There is actually a Twix Twinkie wrapped in bacon deep fried and coated with powdered sugar and chocolate sauce on top. 1100 calories. Yes, I looked for it. No, I didn't find it. Bummer. 

We had a blast. I'm absolutely obsessed with family traditions. We have been taking Jack since before he could walk. The last two years he has been lucky enough to ride the rides with his cousin. The air was crisp and you could just feel Fall rolling in. We stayed until dusk, when the temperature started to significantly drop. It felt amazing. Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. They kids basically rode every ride they were tall enough for, saw tons of animals, found Papa's first and second place ribbons for snap beans, salsa, stewed tomatoes, and a birdhouse.

 No fried food for me this year! Emily-1 State Fair-0

A little throwback to Jack's first fair:
