The Fair

Last week was the Ogeechee Fair. It's tiny compared to the GA National Fair that I've been to a few times. It was a lot of fun though. We don't ride rides so it was just a night of people watching and eating food that is horrible for us.


As soon as we got there it was time for a pig race so we watched. My parents used to take us to the Ga Mountain Fair when we were kids. My favorite part was the pig race.



It can't get more redneck and hilarious than large potbelly pigs racing around and jumping into a pool of water.

We took in the high-wire pirate show...
...and, of course, funnel cake!

Koala's Are The Cutest

So last Friday, very last minute, I took the day off and went to Colombia, S.C. with my friend Brandy and her 3 children to meet our other friend Alyssa and her 4 children for a visit to the zoo. The weather couldn't haven been more perfect and the kids had a blast as well as us adults. Man was I tired when I got home...7 children is a lot of people to keep up with.

The girls with the lion.


The boys



We tried to get a group picture (-babies) but it wasn't happening.






I hear that Koala's are not very nice but they are so adorable. Everyone of them was sleeping.



















Unexpected days off are the best. Great friends are even better!

Painted Pig Farms

I wanted to put a word out for Painted Pig Farms and their all natural pork and homemade soaps. We first tried some of their soaps because I had expressed an interest in learning how to make my own soap. It turns out that a we loved it so much that we had Joel and Amy pay Nathan in soap for some work he did for them. It is 100% better than the stuff you buy at the store and it smells divine.

Their pork which is their main business is delicious. So far we've tried both the smoked ham and pork chops. Their pigs are born and raised right here in GA.




You can see them at the Statesboro Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. They're just a few tents down from the Sugar Magnolia tent were Nathan is. Please support you're local farmers and businesses!

Savannah Jazz Festival

Last weekend was the Savannah Jazz Festival. Nathan and I are not huge jazz fans but we enjoy hearing it live. We had never been but it's free and you get to sit outside, eat, and drink a glass of wine or beer. The weather is finally cooling off a bit so we decided to check it out.


It rained on the drive down but we were hoping that it would miss the park. It didn't and it ended up raing half the time we were there. It was worth it and we stayed until about 9.





Our friends the Flemings joined us in the fun...




...and their son enjoyed getting to know the Savannah ladies and playing in the rain.










Next weekend (7-8) is the Folk Festival and I think we're going to try a go. Maybe it won't rain!
