In our little city fall brings fewer daylight hours, football and The Dixie Classic Fair. Let me just tell you. The fair is a BIG deal around our parts. The grown women in my Bible study were practically gitty when talking about the food and the rides. I asked them, "So...is this something that Brad and I should go too?"
They starred at me in disbelief like I had just uttered a four letter word. These girls were astonished that a) we had never been to the fair in the three October's that we've lived in NC and b) that we would even consider passing up the fair.
Of course I grew up going to the local county fair, and it was dirty and the rides were questionable at best. But hoping for the best, Brad and I loaded up Baby Girl to see what the fuss was all about.
I must say that we had a great time and The Dixie Classic did not disappoint! Where else can you find funnel cakes and fried snickers? I'm thinking heaven and the fair:)
The fair even had a petting zoo that Addi couldn't get enough off. I think we have a little animal lover on our hands:)
There were five-year-olds crying because a sheep looked at them the wrong way, but not Baby Girl. She practically leaped out of her Daddy's arms trying to "pat, pat" the lambs. She wanted down so she could get closer.
When I thought she couldn't squeal with delight any louder, we introduced her to the baby goats. My oh my, how she loved the goats!
Addison wasn't the least bit cautious and I think Brad was fearful that a baby goat would want to nibble on her sweet little chubby fingers.
Towards the end of our petting zoo visit, I think Brad lightened up a bit and started considering buying a little goat for his baby girl because she loved them so much:)

Once Little Bro Trey graduates (say a prayer, keep your fingers crossed), my entire immediate family will be Auburn alumni. Trey still has a long way to go until he earns his diploma - four years to be exact. He is just getting started! Brad and I are envious. We would do it all over again in a heartbeat!
For the AU vs. South Carolina game, we packed up no less than half of our belongings for a day trip to The Plains to attend Trey's Parents Weekend at his fraternity. I think Trey was glad to see us (just between us, I think he is suffering from a serious case of homesickness:).
Our visit was short and sweet, but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless! Auburn is such a special part of our lives and we take advantage of every opportunity to go.
Baby Girl was spoiled rotten by her Nana and Big Daddy while we were in Alabama - R.O.T.T.E.N.
She got to play outside everyday, stay up late and eat things (like ice cream) that a little baby shouldn't. But she loved every second and doesn't seem any worse for wear.
Unfortunately, momma isn't near as entertaining back home in NC. There aren't any horses, cows or dogs to pet. Too bad we had to leave all the animals in Alabama...we're bored!
