Ya Gotta Regatta

Every Labor Day weekend the City of Charleston puts on the Sternwheel Regatta. This year the entertainment included Star Ship, now everyone sing with me "We built this city...we built this city on Rock and Roll!." But to me the Regatta means one thing and one thing only, carney food. I love everything about it's fried deliciousness. It's always difficult for me deciding what to eat so I end up eating everything. Steven of course could go the rest of his life and never eat a funnel cake again. And have I mentioned before that things on a stick freak him out. Seriously, he says stick food is like chewing on tin foil. I for one can't imagine such a sad existence. This was Sophie B's first go at gourmet de carney. I think the photos speak for themselves as to whether or not she enjoyed it.


Fried hotdog on a stick? It doesn't get much better!

Wait, these nachos are pretty yummy.

Apparently you take to dancing in the middle of the street when you eat...

one of these!

I haven't had a funnel cake before (looks good to me), but I LOVE LOVE LOVE elephant ears. Glad Sophie enjoyed herself!

Looks like Little Bit enjoyed it all. Love the pic of her dancing in the street, btw, that dress is really cute.

Sophie B is truly your daughter! (Not that I had any doubt before.) I'm glad she had such a good time sampling all of the yummy carny items, though now I'm dying for a funnel cake!

Shawn would die if he could never have funnel cake again! Sophie looks like she is enjoying her corn dog, I mean come on, if it is fried it has to be good!

There is nothing better than a corndog! I love any fair food -- even though I inevitably become ill after consuming it.

Looks like a fun labor day weekend.

Too cute! I couldn't get my daughter to eat the fair food at all. (I have a few more people to check with, but I do believe I have the pickiest eater EVER)

Your Sophie looks like she was lovin the greasy goodness and has inspired me to try my very first funnel cake at the fair next week :)

We just had state fair time here in the ville. Jonathan was in WV with my parents, but I ate enought carney food for the two of is. The corn dog is hands down my favorite, particularly with a draft beer!

I am salivating right now!!! Love Funnel cakes! I think they're even better than ELephant ears because they're nice and doughey (sp? Is it even a word?).

Glad it was a great time for you guys!
