Maple Cotton Candy= pure deliciousness

I believe here in New England, carnivals are taken seriously. Let's take the Big E for example. It's where all 6 NE states come together for 3 weeks and host a carnival/fair/4-H extravaganza! It's insaneo in the braino. Cony wasn't able to come (poor guy was sick and had lots of work to catch up on) but I went with our GA/CT friends. I ate all my weeks worth of calories and don't regret it a second and saw so many people- I don't know a word to describe how many.


I will probably not do it again. It's expensive and way too many people. However, I had a wonderful time with the friends and who doesn't love a carnival?

Each state has a house with different vendors that represent what the state is known for and I learned a few things about Connecticut.. Lego's and PEZ were invented here. In Vermont's house, we tested some cheese of course AND tasted Maple Cotton Candy? Ever heard of it?? It's out of this world delicious.

Me and my 'creative hat' (at least that's how Cony refers to it) and our friends cute daughter. I'm glad I have friends who let me borrow their kids.

These corn dog stands had 6", 12" and 18" long corn dogs. I wish I was kidding and wish I had taken a photo so you would believe me.
