NC State Fair ~ 2010



We have many fond memories of the NC State Fair. One of our first dates was to the fair. Gerald took his sisters to the state fair while I was home with a brand new baby girl, Angela. He took Angela to the fair when she was 5 because I felt it just wasn't a place I should or wanted to be 9 months pregnant with Emily. We took our girls when they were small, we've gone with friends and we have gone many times just with each other. This year we took our daughter Emily and grandson Bryson. We had a wonderful time!! Can't wait to go back again next year!!!

Looks like fun. We miss our fair with the grandkids this year because I was on the road. The first year we have missed one.

I am trying so hard to get to the NC State Fair this year (we've yet to make it). I'll get there with or without the boys!

Where is the state fair here? We had the county fair last weekend but didn't go. Too busy with projects.

You know, I've lived in NC for 20 years and have yet to travel to Raleigh for the state fair. I really should try to go sometime, if for nothing else but the fried oreos!

Blasé said...

I was looking for you.

Jen said...

Sounds like fun! I saw Shinedown for 8 dollars at a fair. I should start attending more of them.

I love taking children to the fair. They seem to enjoy so many things that we as adults overlook.
