Orange County Fair
The boys and I ventured down south and met my friend Lisa and her daughter Annabelle for a day at the Orange County Fair. We ate a funnel cake with "fresh" strawberries and whipped cream, ceviche with tortilla chips, deep-Fried Oreos, a deep-fried Twinkie, countless bottles of water and a giant doughnut with maple glaze and crumbled bacon. I got on the Ferris Wheel and freaked out a bit when we hung, suspended at the top, but I pulled it together and enjoyed the view. I chit-chatted with Lisa as our kids rode the crazy rides, ran through the fun house with Oliver, viewed a 13-foot alligator and countless livestock, saw some pigs race around a track and sat in the shade watching the wheels go round and round.
