On Saturday, we made our first trip to the state fair!
We saw some cows and pigs and giant pumpkins. Clare loved taking in all the new sights.
Now, this was our first trip to any state fair because we grew up attending the Houston Rodeo. My favorite things about the rodeo are:
- Seeing suburban Houstonians channel their inner cowboy.
- You know, the actual rodeo events. And the relatively cheap concerts that follow. Like Beyonce!
- The wide variety of fried food. We're talking fried oreos, fried twinkies, fried snickers bars. Just to name a few.
Well, try as we might, we could not find a single fried dessert item at the state fair. Apparently, in Washington, the traditional fair food is...scones. Scones, people!
To be fair, the scones were really quite tasty. But still.
