Sean kept teasing me that I was going to be disappointed but I kept saying it was all in fun. We headed on over to the fair in the morning.
I just KNEW they were winning pickles!
Waiting to enter the pickles
I think the winning jar is on the left, front. - more about that later
The woman on the right was entering the pie contest with a peach-sour cherry pie.
A group yoga session
DC has a roller derby team - the DC Rollergirls. I just had to have a picture taken with them. One of my colleagues was in their training camp and broke her ankle - I mentioned it to the women here and they were all excited that Sean and I knew Allie. For sure, I'm taking Emma and Brian to see them this year.
Me and Sean. Get a load of his beard. I LOVE it. Emma hates it :-)
The pickle judges. They picked Pickled Peaches to win the first prize and white asparagus to win 2nd. There was a tie for 3rd but I didn't hear who won that!
Losers, comparing pickles
A younger judge! His dad was running around, trying all the pickles.
What's a state fair without a few animals. There are chickens, ducks and goats in this pen
A camel? In Columbia Heights?!
We had a fun time but all I have to say is Pickled Peaches? That's just not right! I'm already planning for next year.
