State Fair!!!

Well...they did it again. The peeps BOLTED and left me here all by myself again.

Here I am chillaxin' while they're at the STATE FAIR!

They go every year and treat it like some kind of wacked out food holiday and eat all kinds of crap and then complain about feeling bloated and sick for a few days afterward....I say it SERVES 'EM RIGHT! Just LOOK at some of this ridiculousness (I understand they didn't even get PICS of all of it! JEEZ!)....

Dad and Holden ALWAYS stop at the first corndog stand they see (while mom gags)

Mom decided that GREEK TOMATO BALLS dipped in Tatziki were her new "fair favorite"!
Mom's nickname was/is "YaYa" (Mimi and Pa still call her that because she couldn't say "Laura" when she was little). She KNEW they'd be good because of the name!

CHOCOLATE COVERED BACON!!!! (yes...bacon dipped in chocolate! It was surprisingly yummy....that whole salty/sweet thing)

Ribeye sammich!


Pizza cone!

Strawberry shortcake! (this is probably TMI...but mom yacked after this pic! WHEN will she ever learn??? HAHAHAHA!)

Corn on the cob!

Holden flipping out because he found the fried candy stand....

Ribbon/potato fries thing...

AND for dessert......an elephant ear!

Here's me laughing at them when they came home and made a beeline for the medicine cabinet moaning about TUMS!

Happy Tuesday!

I think I need a tums after seeing all that! I wish we had a fried candy stand!

The choclate dipped bacon sounds heavenly.. you can buy chocolate bars with bacon in them.

WOW!!! Your people tried everything!! The momma said it was to hot to eat the way they normally would. But she did try the pizza cone and the daddy ate the chocolate covered bacon. Don't fret, S-Dog, i got left at home too!!!

Salinger dude! You missed out on all the fun. I can't believe your peeps didn't take you with. So sad.

All of that food made Mom sick. Mom and Dad used to go to the Wisconsin State Fair every year and pig out, get sick, complain about it, and then go back the next year. That was in the old days. Mom doesn't eat any of that icky food anymore, so no fun for Mom means no fun for Dad.

Mom says she feels like she needs a TUMS just from reading about it but I says Yums!!!!

OMD, I can't believe how much food your peeps ate! Hope they at least brought you a little something home from the fair - if not, serves 'em right for feeling sick to the tummy!

Mom says that all the food looks delish, but bacon is good enough by itself, it doesn't need the chocolate :)

Hank said...

Sal, buddy.....and they say us PUGS will eat anything!

Dude, A/C and no need fer Tums? I'd say yer the clear winner here I tell ya what.

PS from mom: Great post!!!!!!

Too Cute Pugs said...

Wow! With all the food and eating, the fair looks like a perfect place for a pug!!!!

Our parents are probably going to the fair too in a couple of weeks and no, they said they aren't taking us either. Harumph.

Pug love from,
Pearl & Daisy
