On a whim, we drove an hour and a half on Sunday and took the kids to the South Carolina State Fair this weekend. It was their first fair ever, and my second. It was awesome!! We had fried oreos (dude.), a fried snickers, pizza, corn dogs, and cotton candy. We saw prize-winning pies, giant tractors, and a goat milking contest. It was really fun. I'm only sorry I left my good camera in the car and instead used my iPhone. It just can't compare. Oh well, you live you learn.
Perhaps the best part of the day for me was the lack of technology. I love wi-fi, my MacBook Pro, my iPhone, and if loving Project Runway is wrong, I don't wanna be right. But when it comes to my family and my kids, all the lovely technological excesses in our life simply fade away. You can't compare quality time with an iPad. I love to just hang out with my kiddos and hub and feel that fullness in my heart at the end of the day that comes from great memories made with family. Oh, and the Fried Oreos. God bless them.
