The Giant Pumpkin

Mom and dad went to Durham Fair last night.  We weren't allowed to go - some dumb rule about safety for all of the animals.
They saw many, many pumpkins and some of them were HUGE!

 This was the winner at 1,613.5 pounds!  Imagine how many pumpkin pies you can make out of him!
 They saw funny pumpkins.
 And even an M-n-M pumpkin!
 And the fair wouldn't be a fair without the animals. 
 This goat had the coolest beard.

 Mom fell in love with this quilt and wished that she could bring it home~
 These chemo caps are all donated to Smilow Cancer Center.  This booth is only half of them.  There are twice this many!  They are truly works of art!
 Dad had to have his apple crisp.
 And mom had to have her hot HUGE sugary donut.
 This older couple seemed to be having the best time.  haha
So until next time................

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

What fun for your parents! Too bad you couldn't go but if you had gone you would've taken away all the attention from the other animals since you two are too cute!
