an af-fair to remember

So, the B and I went to the Cape Fear Fair & Expo on Thursday night. (opening night) It was BEAUTIFUL. The lights, sounds, SMELLS...they were all just, well, a bit overwhelming but definitely awesome. There were some really cute animals and some really interesting rides.

The B and I went to the SC State Fair last year and we both thought that this fair had way more diversity when it came to the rides. The only thing I didn't like about the fair were the heckling game attendants who call you out as you walk by and try to entice you to win an oversized stuffed animal or personalized basketball. Thankfully, I have no use for a giant banana with a rastafarian wig, so I was not persuaded by the game masters' attempts.

Here are a few shots from the fair. Be warned that these are iPhone photo the quality isn't so great. However, it gives you an idea of what it was like.

How AWESOME are their trash cans?? Pretty cool...

Behold the gaming extravaganza. In the top right...the giant banana with a rasta wig. Ridiculous.

Basically, fried oreos are a MUST. And the lemonade. (Don't worry...I didn't get E.Coli...knock on wood.)

The amazingness that is the Deep Fried Oreo.

There were SO many cute bunnies that I wanted. I'm probably allergic to them, but they are so dang cute. I was torn between the ones with the floppy ears and the ones with the stick-up ears so the B suggested one like this guy. He had one up ear and one down ear. He's constantly undecided. I liked him. Plus, he played with his ball and toys a lot. He kept himself entertained. Another plus in a pet.

Well, as y'all are reading this, I'm on my way to (or already back in) Charlotte to finish moving the rest of my stuff and to clean my old place. Then it will officially be official. :)

Have a wonderful weekend and if you're in the Wilmington area, be sure to stop by the Cape Fear Fair!

    same goes for rastafarian bananas....they are quite the enigma around these parts.
