Utah State Fair

So today after class me and my roommates and a bunch of friends all decided to go up to the Utah State Fair! None of us had ever been and didn't really know what to expect, but it ended up being lots of fun :) minus the fact that they totally con you into buying things! they had like a gazillion signs up advertising frozen lemonade, and lemonade, ice cold water, and coke... sheesh! they sure know how to make a thirsty person cave. dont worry that there wasn't a drinking fountain in sight! so i ended up having to buy the smallest water bottle i've ever seen for 2.50! what a rip off. dont they know im a poor college student? but anyways we decided that this is what the state fair is.. you go spend 8 dollars to get in.. so that you can spend more money on rides.... hm... we were hoping to be able to do stuff for FREE once we paid 8 dollars to get in, but whatever, i guess that was an unrealistic expectation and it was still a blast. afterwards we went to village inn and stuffed our faces. All in all a great night. I really hope my knee quits giving me so much grief though so i can get back to running! otherwise i might gain another 10 lbs this year! meh. anyways here are a bunch of pics from the night :)

holly, mandy, chels, me being ridiculous as always :D

just admit it. we're the cutest apples you've ever seen ;)

holly and mandy being fat apples..? haha so cute.

im scared of the 13 foot, 12oo lb alligator :P

I want to see tigers!!!! :) Haha. That's cool. I didn't even know about the fair really...
K. Not fair. I heard of it, it just never really registered.

And this is totally random, but for some reason my iPod is trying to play two songs at once, and it's driving me nuts. One's loud, and one's like... elevator music in the background.
Meh. Stupid.
