Ah, the fair, where a kid can be a Teletubby. Notice the kickbutt shirt that cool dude behind her is sporting. I got the stink-eye from one or two people whom I believe had read the quote from Howl on the back. This is the state fair, after all.
And what would a fair be without a deep fried something that shouldn't be deep fried, in this case a couple of Reese's Cups. I love how they sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top. Just in case.
It should be mentioned that Marlie's first pony ride will forever be remembered for the pony directly across from us in the circle of ponies. During a stop in the action to allow the ponycarnie to clean some ponyapples from the hay, said pony became a little agitated and nearly threw a petrified little girl. Needless to say, I grabbed Marlie and made for the exit. You can never be too careful in an enclosed space with a bunch of ponies.
