You might be a redneck...

if you spent Saturday night at the DEMOLITION DERBY! That's right folks, TJ and I embraced our inner white trash selves and headed down to the state fair (the redneck mecca) to check out the demolition derby. Not gonna lie, it was kinda fun. But there were people sitting in the stands around us whose lives seemed to revolve around the DD (these same people were also missing most, if not all, of their teeth...coincidence? I think not).

Dallin and Katie are SO excited (mainly because we saved $12 and rode the shuttle instead of paying to park)


TJ loves anything that involved destruction.


Cars getting smashed...


More cars getting smashed...

These two cars were stuck to each other and it took a while to get them unstuck...


After the DD, we walked around and checked out the rest of the state fair.


We saw the Big Snake (and maybe Dallin told a little boy that the big snake likes to eat little boys and maybe that little boy cried).

We gave a quarter to a (working-against-his-own-free-will-and-hating-his-life) monkey for good luck.Ate awesome "fair food" such as these fabulous cheesy curly fries (tasted MUCH better than they look).Katie rode the (same description as the monkey) elephant.

Tried to win giant stuffed things by playing some carnival games...

and more carnival games...


and more carnival games...


and then FINALLY....


Dallin won a giant stuffed thing and TJ won nothing. Bummer.


Before we left we made sure to make the debut performance of our awesome band!


And maybe I failed at singing...Rockband is hard.


All in all, fun times were had by all at the Arizona State Fair.

You should have saved me some of those chili cheese fries. Even though they look nasty in the pick I can already taste them in my mouth and they're dee-li-si-oh-so! Mmmm!
