Ah Monday, your presence means another weekend has ended. Except this weekend wasn't really a "weekend" for me because I made the WONDERFUL decision to work BOTH DAYS. But somehow I still managed to squeeze in tons and tons of fun which is probably why I'm captain of the struggle buss this morning. YOLO
Friday we made our way to the Alabama National Fair (I called it "state"fair last week, that was wrong). We made the spur of the moment decision to go right after work and I don't regret it one bit. It wasn't crowded like it has been on years past when we went on a Saturday at 8 or 9 pm.
We actually didn't ride many rides, just walked around and watched some pretty cool shows. There was the Austrailia show, where they had baby kangaroo's, flying squirrels, a wombat, and a dingo. Then there was the Alligator show. And last was my favorite, the circus. Of course it wasn't a full blown Circus like you would see for real, but it was a good show considering.
Derek introduced me to an "elephant ear" which is essentially a funnel cake except instead of little tubes of cake it's just a giant piece. Like a pancake except bigger and with cinnamon sugar.
Saturday I went to work, then afterward we headed to the Foreigner concert. If you didn't already know (you probably didn't) Foreigner is one of my all time FAVORITE bands. There isn't a song of theirs that I don't like.
I didn't get too many pictures, because I was trying to enjoy the show via my eyeballs instead of through my phone screen. I'm going to say that even though these guys are pretty old (the oldest is 68) they put on a great show.
Sunday after work, my brother's baseball team had a fall ball game in Montgomery so I headed over to watch him play.
He's the little dot waaayyy out in left field.
I've been watching my brother play baseball for the last thirteen years and it hasn't gotten old yet.
