Peanut, Peanut Butter, Jelly!

This week The National Peanut Festival is in Dothan, Alabama and it is one of our all time favorite family fun events! If you don't already know, approximately half of the peanuts grown in the U.S. are grown within a 100-mile radius of our Wiregrass area. The National Peanut Festival (which by the way is the nation's largest peanut festival) is held each fall to honor peanut growers and to celebrate the harvest season....and to give us some super fun as well! We decided this year to make it a girls night and it was awesome! Since Eric had to "work" late (can anyone say "Fore!" Ha ha!), and it was the perfect night to take kiddos (no crazy concerts, events, etc.) I packed up and took Abby to her 4th NPF...but we weren't alone!!!! Blaire and Reagan got to go to their very 1st NPF...and we had another first timer as well - Aunt Kelly (Barbara's sister). Aunt Kelly has been around town for the past week or so visiting with her favorite nieces, ha! The five of us headed to Dothan (making a pit stop at the voting polls first) where we spent over three hours enjoying the crazy rides (Bear Affair, Dizzy Dragons, Fire Chief, Free Fall, Merry-Go-Round, etc), our favorite fair foods (seriously - people will fry anything in the deep south, ha!), and of course checking out the live stock (Moooooo! Ha!). To make a very long story short, we all had a great night and it was a ton of fun....once again, the NPF was a great event and we love going and are already looking forward to next year's "festibull."
