We love the fair.  It’s actually where Sam and I met for the first time four years ago…so it holds a special place in both of our hearts.  I remember taking one look at him and thinking…”man….i’ve got to get to know this boy”.  I’m sure glad things worked out :)  The Del Mar Fair happens once a year mid-June through the July 4th and brings with it all sorts of nostalgic memories for me.  Sam and I make it a priority to venture back every year, despite feeling a little “too old”.  The food alone is what draws me now.  And fair food while pregnant??….let me tell you, it was a whole new experience!  I didn’t dare try the maple bacon donut I had heard so much about though.  Those sorts of combinations are just not right.  And deep fried BUTTER!?! …..really!??   As we were walking around we kept talking about how we can’t wait until we can enjoy things like this with our baby girl.  It will be just that much more exciting!  I can just see her now, petting the baby goats and laughing at the fat bellied pigs and asking for “more cotton candy please”!  (just like her momma).  Ooooh that will be the day!

I can’t tell you how many photo strips we have like this together.  It’s an overpriced MUST at the fair.  But unfortunately, this was not our best round! haha.  “When does this thing start?”  FLASH.  Oh.

Happy fourth of July weekend! to you!  Aren’t three day weekends the best!? Are you doing anything fun!? I think the beach and a bit of BBQ-ing is in order for us.

    Cute! We went last night too, it’s a MUST for us each year ;)
    Did you happen to see the sign for
    “Baby Ruth stuffed Jalapeno Pepper, Fried” ???
    Yeah, I’m not kidding. That goes beyond the deep fried butter, in my opinion ;)

    Hi! Newest follower here! :o) I’m a San Diego girl myself & after finding your blog through Jenny May @ The Swede Records, I’ve been missing my hometown every time I look at your page!

    The Del Mar Fair is a staple from my childhood as well. I went every single summer until I officially moved away at 19. Sooo many great memories! Looking at these pictures takes me right back – the sights, the smells, the sounds – I can see, smell & hear it all! :o)

    We went last night and last thursday… gotta take advantage of the $2 tickets! The food was aaaamazing. I saw the fried butter stand. Yikes. My SIL tried the chocolate cover bacon and said it was pretty horrible. But, the falafels and kettle corn and fried oreos were deee-licious.

    Oh and seeing a (nearly 60 years old) Joan Jett was the icing on the Krispy Kreme donut-chicken sandwich! (I hope you’re not having morning sickness, cuz I am, and just writing that almost made me barf!)

    We’re a Toaster Oven company.Toaster ranges are small electric ovens with a high house,cable dish and removable preparing pan.To produce bread with a toaster oven,reductions of bread are placed horizontally on the rack. After the produce is conducted,the toaster converts down, but usually the entrance should certanly be subjected manually. Many toaster ranges are significantly larger than toasters, but are designed for performing every one of the options that come with electric ovens,even though on a somewhat smaller scale.They works extremely well to create produce with toppings,like garlic bread or cheese,none the less they tend to produce drier produce and require lengthier working instances,since their temperature parts are positioned more from the make.They can also heat less similarly than often toasters or higher electric ovens,and some glass cookware can’t be employed in them.So,If you want any support,please visit ezinearticles.com
