Don't blink. Just run.

Weekend Shenanigans Part 2

on September 4, 2013

(You can catch up on Part 1 here)

Sunday morning we got up so I could go on my 5 mile run. Zach had the great idea to drop me off at Oak Ledge Park and I would finish just before the dog park that they like to bring their boys to play. It was the most gorgeous run I’ve ever had. It started out right by the edge of Lake Champlain, meandered through some parts of downtown and through a lot of wooded areas. It was a gorgeous day out, but the humidity was a killer!

Once I finished my run and stretching, we all packed back into the car to go home and get ready to head to the Champlain Valley Fair.

We had such a great time checking out all the farm animals and shows that were going on. We even got to feed some mini horses!

After busting my butt kayaking on Saturday and with my longest run to date Sunday morning, I felt I deserved some fair food. I had some cheese fries, shared a cider clush (amazing!) and a root beer float, a shaved ice and my first ever fried twinkie (which was heaven on a stick).

We had such a great time, even though our faces were melting off. I think one of the highlights was watching pigs race and swim. They were adorable!

After a few hours, we called it a day and headed home to relax. We decided to chill at home that night and we ate dinner while watching Sherlock Holmes on Netflix. I could barely keep my eyes open to watch it, but thought it was a pretty good movie.

More shenanigans to come…

    I especially like the piggies and of course the sunglasses!

  2. So glad you had a great run, The fair only comes once a year so I always believe a splurge is allowed – my go to – the elephant ear!

      Oh yeah! Fried dough is always a big favorite, but I was branching out and trying stuff I don’t usually see at our local fairs. We’ve even made fried dough at home (and almost blew up our kitchen!).

    I love Burlington! What a beautiful part of the world! This made me think of my trip there, nice memories! 🙂
