Mid-Week Weekend Recap!

This week I had a Mid-Week Weekend! I had Tuesday and Wednesday off, so Josh and I headed home to celebrate Father's Day since we couldn't make it home on Sunday. So my family and Josh all went to the Alameda County Fair!

*iPhone Foto Friday will be back next week!*

Warning: Lots of Pictures of us eating LOTS of food hahaha

Kevin starting the day off right with a Monster Corn Dog!

Baby Chicks and Ducks!!
up close, aww
The day was made even funnier by having not ONE but TWO gimps. My Mom Broke her foot on Cinco de Mayo, and Josh injured his foot on Tuesday night at hockey so he had to crutch around the fair, poor guy
We saw Goats get baths!
Big Cows!
baby goats!
hi there little one!
gypsy wagon!
After the corn dog Dad went for BBQ sandwich!
This little booth was calling my name!
Kevin and Clay joined the ice cream band wagon too, I mean who could resist?
We saw a lady with a cotton candy hat!
I took this one for my friend Katie! Sock Monkeys! haha
we saw the judges taste testing cakes and pies. The male judge gagged on the one he was eating when we walked by hahaha
Josh and Kevin
they had little displays of things people collect. This person collects Target Gift Cards. I love Target, but really??
Dad eating some calamari (ewww)
Next up: ICEES!!!!
Cheers!
Dippin Dots? Why Not!?
Kevin let the gypsy try to sell him things
The rides!
I of course had to ride my favorite ride: THE SWINGS!!
:)
Josh and Kevin after a long day of fair going.
Our Quote of the day: "We came, We Saw, We Corn dogged"
After the fair we dropped Josh off at his house so he could rest.
Then Kevin, Clay, and I went to Wal-Mart to buy stuff for Kevin's Dorm when he goes away to college next month. Then we had dinner (not like we were that hungry after the fair haha) And then Dad opened his Father's Day gifts!

Clay's gag gift of the Shake Weight was by far the funniest gift!
Kevin giving it a try. Surprisingly enough, it was actually a pretty tough workout! haha
After dinner and gifts I picked Josh up from his parent's house and we headed home.
It was great having two days off together, even if it was a Mid-Week Weekend, it was still great!! The fair food was so delish, and I'm proud to say that I had enough of it in one day to last me until next year! haha :)

Happy Friday Everyone!

A mid-week weekend is not bad at all. It's a lot less crowded at places like the fair than on the actual weekend.

There are so many comments I want to leave for the wonderful array of photos you took. First off, thank you for the sock monkey shout out!! I also loved the picture of "little one," he was very cute. I have to also give a little shout for the world's largest corn dog, now is that one very large hotdog inside, a couple dogs pieced together? I really have no idea. You guys looked like you had fun though, thanks for the pictures!
