State Fair

On sunday a friend and i went to the KY state fair to see the Train and Maroon 5 concert.  The concert wasn't until 8pm, but with our tickets we had free admission to the fair.  we walked around for a good 2 hours looking at all sorts of stuff. around 5 we were getting hungry so we started walking down past all the food vendors to see what goodies were available.  We happened across this....

 We settled on a bbq pork sandwich and fries for our dinner.  Our dessert however was a different story..... a deep fried snickers!!  we each had half and it was so good!! 

we watched a diving show where they were doing dives into a pool.  They had a long ladder type thing with a step at the very top.  we had to watch to see if anyone was going to go off that one.  sure enough they did.

at the very top, he actually did a handstand up there to start his dive

almost there, flipping the entire time

The concert was great too! Matt Nathanson opened, followed by Train then Maroon 5.

i didnt get home til almost 3am. luckily today was my first day back on second shift, so i was able to sleep in. unfortunately i was woken up at 9;30 by a hungry pug dog and couldnt' go back to sleep.  :(  i did take a short nap after lunch, then got up and ran 2 miles on the treadmill before getting in the shower for work.  oh my how i hate to dry my hair when i'm still sweating!! i didn't leave myself enough time to cool down before i had to hop in the shower.   miserable doesnt even begin to describe it!!


  1. The truest statement I ever heard "you want to know your doing ok and your family is normal, spend a day at the state fair"

  2. You couldn't pay me to jump off that thing! Those yummy fried foods looked so tasty!! Glad you had a good time. Way to get home at 3am!! haha

  3. Oh my goodness deep fried Snickers!! Wow! Sounds awesome! :0) Looks like a fun time!
