State Fair Pics

Last weekend, we went to the Arizona State Fair. I am only now getting around to posting pictures because it's been a very busy week. Also, I'm trying to get used to a new camera.

This beef jerky won first place in the Jerky and Dried Beef division. Well, they must have not dried enough because it's covered in mold! Ironically, the second place entry looked perfectly edible.

This entire meal is made out of rocks. Click on the picture to see the detail.

Nutrition at its finest!

Lucas' favorite car at the demolition derby was the Ghostbusters station wagon.

Fire! The fuel line must have ruptured on one of the cars because after they were pried apart, there was a huge puddle of gas on the ground.

Rocks for dinner? What in the world do you eat down there? hehe I wouldn't recommend that with Fiesta, it would scratch the plates up!!!

Ms. Val said...

LOL, Craig. No, we don't eat rocks for dinner here. But we do have Mexican food no fewer than three times a week.

I just thought that it was amazing how someone was able to find enough edible-looking rocks to compile this exhibit.

Also, I think the dishes might have been Corelle.

Well, for somebody who eats rocks...they should have to eat off of Corelle!!! But I am beginning to question the eating habits of people from Arizona. I mean, molded beef jerky gets the blue ribbon??? YIKES! We at least have sense to eat it before it molds! LOL

It looks like the family had a great time at the fair...that is all that is important. Well, that and the fact you should have done something about those Corelle dishes! LOL
