The Fair Is Great!

So Faythe and I went to the Spokane Interstate Fair last night. I went with a specific agenda, which was:

1) See if the knitting I entered won anything.
2) See the awesome chickens, and other barnyard animals of an awesome nature.
3) Eat fair food.
4) Not buy a sham-wow or knives or anything else they sell at the fair.

Mission accomplished!

The first thing we did after we ate was go visit my scarf and washcloth. Here is my scarf:



OH! What is that thing tied to the bottom of it?



That's right, it's a BLUE RIBBON!!! This makes me an Award-Winning Knitter! Woohoo!! Then we went to visit my washcloth.



Another blue ribbon! As you can see, I made good on last year's throwdown. Just wait till next year!

So then after going through the craft and flower rooms, we embarked on some highly scientific funnel cake research. At the fair, they sell Pennsylvania Dutch Funnel Cake and Oklahoma Funnel Cake. While Faythe purchased the P.D. one, I asked the girl in the booth what makes PD funnel cakes different from OK funnel cakes. She looked at me like I was from another planet, and said two words--"The Amish!". But here is the thing. The Amish were not actually at the fair making our funnel cakes. And that is probably why the Oklahoma funnel cake was way better. And a dollar cheaper. Bottom line--Oklahoma Funnel Cakes Rule!!

After our very important and significant research project, we headed into the barns for the best part of the fair, the animals! I was particulary taken with the Longhorn Cattle and their babies.






Aren't they so cute? I Love The Fair!

I am so bummed that my soon-to-be middle aged body wouldn't let me it last night.

If you are middle aged, then I am old, and we are SO not going there!
