Only in The South

We had a very busy Saturday and pretty much all of it consisted of things that could only happen in The South.
I know that I have said before that there are always these different festivals that they hold here on Ft. Rucker. Its pretty cool that they always have stuff going on. So in the fall they have a chili cook off and you can buy tickets and then go to these different booths and get a little cup of their chili. It's totally fun and there are always fun activities for the kids.
What made us laugh the most this year though was this chili booth.......

I mean honestly.....we couldn't even bring ourselves to try this chili cause the booth just grossed us out.

But there was plenty of other chili to try

Ruby decorated her own thanksgiving bag

And then we waited in line for the obstacle course. Ruby loves doing this and I even gave it a shot this time. I totally rocked it in my UTAH sweatshirt!!!!!!

There goes Ruby

In the afternoon we headed off to the National Peanut Festival.....I probably had no idea there was such a thing.
But it's a pretty big deal around here, so we thought we'd check it.

There were barrels and barrels of peanuts throughout the entire festival,
just grab a handful and shell em as you walk.

Cute Michael and Janan

Our Stake has a booth every year of "Elephant Ears"
basically a scone with cinnamon and sugar on it. The money made goes to the local boy scout groups so we had to give our share and buy one. Yummy!!!!
For sure the best part about going to a festival like this is all the YUMMY food you get to consume. As we finished the night we realized that we didn't even have dinner, just a bunch of junk food. But it was oh soooooo delicious!

Cotton candy

This cotton candy was so good. They even had different flavors! Have you ever heard of that? and if so have you ever tried it?
Well we did....of course. Remember I said all we ate was junk food.
We tried grape, green apple, and strawberry

Next we found the Kettle corn
and ate the entire bag

Then we saw these tasty Turkey Legs. Don't they look Yummy?
Well I couldn't tell you cause we didn't get one.
Remember the junk food?
I'm not kidding when I said that's all we ate.
I mean those logs look good, but c'mon we had to save room for the important stuff.

We had a great time walking around and checking everything out. Even though we were a bit creeped by the Carni people.

  1. I could use some cotton candy right now! Different flavors too? Simply amazing. Who needs turkey legs when you can eat spun sugar, sugar on some dough and sugar ontop of popcorn? That's my idea of a grand dinner right there! That looked super fun.
