friday night, we drove to raleigh to check out the NC state fair.... (mainly so nick could see his beloved demolition derby!)
we made it through the midway with people hollering at nick in condescending ways because he had yet to win me an oversized winnie the pooh.
as tempting as the fireball, helter skelter, and kamikaze might have been... we stuck with the ferris wheel.
not a bad view!
our options for dinner were straight out of the biggest loser cookbook! we managed to sneak away with a cheese steak, corn on a stick, and a lemonade.
after our meal, we settled in for the main event. something i had never witnessed before... demolition derby.
the all start facing each other backwards, then after that, hilarity ensues. they basically try to drive backwards and hit each other. the crowd goes wild. the last vehicle moving wins. it was amazing.
did i mention there were three rounds... 4 cylinder, 6 cylinder, and 8 cylinder (do no ask me what this means). my conclusion: we will be going back next year.
saturday morning while i watched college gameday (DUH.) and this awesome piece on fsu alum, lee corso…
nick was awesome mr. handyman everything man and planted some rose bushes we received from a member of the congregation.
was a great weekend… and we’re excited about another week here in calypso!
