...{...weekend review...}...

did you guys have a good weekend?  mine as usual went by way to fast :-(

friday night i went to the local state fair.  the older i get the smaller the fair seems.  it was the opening night so it was pretty busy.  we were there for about 3-1/2 hours.  rode 3 rides.  ate from two different food stands.  went there with 3 friends.

one of the rides i rode...brought back lots of memories of childhood

overcame my fear of heights to ride the ferris wheel

few from atop the ferris wheel

few from atop the ferris wheel

the most unique thing they had at the fair to eat...deep fried snickers

ate my first every gyro...it was lamb and pretty delish

and it was HUGE...no way i could eat the whole thing

then went to church this weekend...

oh...and made some cupcakes - spiced pear and apple w/ raspberry buttercream frosting. here is the original recipe. i only had 1-1/2 pears so i added in an apple. also had no nutmeg. for the frosting i just made a basic buttercream and added in fresh raspberries. the combo is a bit different, but i really liked it.
