But mostly? We go to eat.
This may not be the case for other families. I, however, married a man who seems to consider it a personal affront to his masculinity not to eat two to three servings at most meals, and who regards The Fair as his own personal smorgasboard.
So what did we enjoy at The Fair? (Because I know you're dying to know.)
My favorite, caramel apples.
Adelaide obviously likes them, too, but she'll only eat about half of hers, and since I'm bad about sharing food I love and insist on one of my own, I get her other half, so I get mine plus some of hers.
Again, because I know you care about this kind of stuff.
Here we all are (minus me, the picture-taker) eating cheese curds, which sound disgusting but taste delicious.
Cheese curds are like Sonic's cheddar bites without the breading. And somehow a bit tastier.
If you've never had a cheddar bite, then I'm going to assume you don't live within a 100-mile radius of a Sonic Drive-In, in which case I feel deeply and pathetically sorry for you, and will say an extra prayer for you tonight.
We also had Iowa sweet corn...
... porkchops on a stick, pineapple whip, chocolate chip cookies, barbeque ribs, walking tacos, barbeque nachos, pulled pork sandwiches, yogurt, ice cream, cheddarwurst- corn dog, funnel cake, onion strings, french fries, and much, much more.
Please keep in mind that all this food consumption was spread across seven people. Never mind that two of them were ages five and two and another doesn't have teeth yet. That still adds up to seven people.
Anyone else hungry?
