Virginia State Fair 2008

We headed to the Virginia State Fair today.  My Uncle, Aunt and Cousin were going to meet up with us in the afternoon.  I packed a big lunch for us yesterday, assuming that we would meet up with everyone at about 1pm and that is when Nathan and I were planning on eating.  We didn't meet up until about 2pm and only had a couple of hours together.  We ended up leaving a little after 4pm as we still had a two hour drive home.

It was a beautiful day.  It was in the 80's but it wasn't as bad waiting for rides as we thought.  We had on suntan lotion, had water and stood in the shade where and when possible.

Nathan and I had a great time walking around and watching some of the shows in the morning; a duck race, a pig race and an extreme canine show.  We didn't hit any of the rides until after we met up with my Uncle.

Next year the state fair will be off of I-95, North of Richmond.  I don't think we will be going.  The drive is too far.
