On Saturday we went to the state fair with the rest of the carni-folk. It has been solidified as an annual tradition now. There were turkey legs, funnel cakes, missing teeth, cheap rides and big bellies galore. But, the kids have fun and they now have their rides that they remember and "have" to ride each year. Alexia went on the big ferris wheel with daddy like always and Caleb chose the slippery tug boat ride. We were a little surprised that he wanted to venture to a bigger person ride, but with daddy by his side, he sported a big smile the whole time. Unfortunately we have pictures, but our connecting cord is missing at the moment so I can't download them - but they are cute!
Erik and I have both managed to NOT run out of gas here in GA thankfully. The lack of gas is amazing. I am conserving greatly and keeping my eye on the gas gauge and any stations that have gas on any given day. Erik had to wait in line for almost an hour a week ago to fill up at the only known station with gas that night. There are stories of people going out in the middle of the night trying to avoid the long lines only to find they still have to wait (sometimes for the gas truck itself). We are hoping it passes very quickly.
