“Our State Fair is a Great State Fair”

By in Friends & Family, Photopalooza, Roundups


For a day of downtime in between mountains of work, MAMA’s House, honorary member Kevin G, and “Friends of the House” Brian & Alana all ventured to the New York State Fair on its opening weekend this season. It was very State Fair-like: barns of animals, delicious fried food, Native American dance demonstrations, seizure-inducing midway lights, wine slushies and lots of walking, but sadly an epic fail at Adam’s & my favorite game to play in the public: “Spot the Hotties.” There were none. Absolutely none. It was tragic. That aside, it was good fair-times. A selection of photos, after the jump.

    LMAO those pictures are great! I have named my favorites below.. and since I don’t know what you named them yourself, I have come up with my own variations 😛 Because it’s fun.

    Sketchy Llama is watching you sketchily.
    Baby Ducks! … !!
    Finding a spot amongst the cows
    Marzipan Village! (It looks like one anyway)
    Eerily still clouds in a sea of motion

    Thanks Christi! I like re-naming! “Sketchy Llama is watching you sketchily” is pretty much the exact description of what was happening. I tried marzipan once, at the museum, and I don’t remember liking it. Then again, the one I tried was a prop so it had probably been sitting out for a week. The actual sculpture in the picture is made a butter, though, and I’m pretty sure would be significantly easier to crush than marzipan.
