The fair is coming!! I can't even believe I'm posting this but seriously, there hasn't been a day that has gone by since March that I haven't thought about the fair. This is embarrassing to admit and my family makes so much fun of me for it but I admit that I am so excited for the fair. I used to hate going, its ghetto, white trash, yucky...but last year we had a great time. I think we went 2 or 3 times and I was so sad once it was over.

And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
