6th annual trip to the State Fair of Virginia, now at a new location North of Richmond. We almost didn't go due to weather, increasing busy-ness, and the perception of inconvenience (it's actually probably just about as far as the old location was from the Short Pump house, <30 min drive), but pulled it out on the last day and wrung 8 hours of fairy goodness out of it before leaving the park at an unbelievably late-for-us 9pm.
Quote from Reese the following day: "I liked having stay-up time at the State Fair. I stayed up late like Griffin! And when I was cold I gotted carried."
