Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon

25 Oct

I took tons of great pictures at the NC State Fair Wednesday, and I just knew that one day I would be able to use at least one of them for a photo challenge.  Little did I know that day would come so soon!

This week’s photo challenge was called “Horizon” and I got some gorgeous pics from the top of the ferris wheel.  Here’s my favorite:

Day at the Fair

23 Oct

I am so glad that we were able to take a trip to the State Fair in Raleigh today!  The weather was perfect and it wasn’t too crowded, and the kids are at some great ages to do stuff like that.

One highlight from our day was the ferris wheel.  Charlie and Maddie loved it, and so did Jason and I.  You could see the entire fair and the buildings in downtown Raleigh.  Also, a cold front was moving in while we were on the ferris wheel, so all of these dark clouds were going over and it suddenly got very cold, so that was pretty neat.

Another thing I loved was the Vermont Maple Syrup Cotton Candy.  It is made with real maple syrup instead of the traditional sugar, and it was so good.

We also had a banana split before we left, and I will always laugh at the image of Jason trying to get some of that ice cream before the kids devoured it.  They share his love of ice cream, so it was a feeding frenzy.

I asked the kids what their favorite part of the fair was.  Maddie said riding the pirate boat (there was a kiddie tug boat that they rode with Jason) and Charlie said the ferris wheel.

Here are some pics from our day!
