The Alaska State Fair

I love me some fair! The Alaska State Fair is great fun, we just sit on the benches and watch the people go by. We went with The Nelson's to the fair on a sunny Monday evening. It actually wasn't too crowded. I've been thinking about fair food since last year. I love the smell of fried food. The Alaska State fair has particularly great food. We started out with some coconut crab cakes, beer battered halibut, peanut fries (we think they are called that because of the shape), fried cheese curds, and a pork chop on a stick. I really wanted to try the cheesecake in a cone but I didn't have any room.
Alyvia loves to get her face painted, she calls it her fair face. She even permanently painted her dolls face in a "fair face" after last year's fair. This year she wanted a unicorn and that is what she got! Notice the man's face in the background.

Ainsley insisting on pushing the stroller through the crowd. Mom, does that remind you of anyone at the same age pushing a stroller in the mall.

Fair faces and the musical express.

Alyvia hopped up on sugar after the fair.

Emma taking it easy.
