State Fair 2011, pt. 3--Food and Faces






We ate our fair lunch right behind a face painting booth, and Georgia asked to have her face painted. We have never done that before, so though it was unplanned, we decided to go for it. When she sat down and the lady asked her what she wanted, she exclaimed "A pig!" The booth had multiple 'faces' displayed around it, and she had pointed out the pig face and giggled about it, but Nathan and I were both shocked that she chose pig over 'butterfly' or 'fairy princess' or something. And yet, she didn't stop smiling once her face was painted. She loved it, and you have to admit, she is the cutest little pig ever.



Then it was Baxter's turn, and he promptly asked for a pig too. The lady painting faces suggested a cow instead, and he agreed. Again, what a precious cow I have!



Just for proof we were at the fair, a shot of Dorton Arena and the crowds



Everywhere we walked through the fair, people commented about how cute the little pig and cow were, and I cannot agree more!

They loved looking at themselves in the mirrors on Herbie



Eleanor was at the fair! She was just in the stroller most of the time

See? we did take her!

My fair treat--a specialty apple (Chocolate A La Orange)- delicious!

Definitely the cutest pig and cow I've ever seen! And I can't believe how long E's hair is getting. She looks so grown up all of the sudden!
