Fun Weekend

Friday night I went to the Wilson County Fair with my sis. We rode the ferris wheel, ate a funnel cake & saw an amazing bluegrass band perform.
This is the view from the top of the ferris wheel. :)

You never know who you might spot at the fair! We saw Uncle Sam...:)
Then we ran into the Taylors. Jordan had won this huge banana for a friend. :)

When it was time to leave, we unfortunately searched for our car in the parking lot for 45 minutes. Then we found out that there are 7 different entrances into the fair, not one. When we finally flagged a worker down to tell her that we were lost, she asked us what road we came in on. We couldn’t remember so when she started naming all of the roads & she said a name that we recognized, we said “that’s it”! We hopped a ride on the golf cart & she took us to the field where we parked which was on the other side of the fair grounds. I’m not sure how we got so turned around but I guess it had something to do with thinking that there was only 1 entrance! we missed the fireworks because we were looking for our car. I saw my sister’s “mean mug” because I was making jokes about being lost & she would have none of it! Just kidding Linda!! It was a really fun night!!
On Saturday we went to Underground Bluegrass in McMinville Caverns with Allen & Amber. Whoever came up with the idea of having a concert in a cave??? It was pretty awesome though & the sound was amazing! We even had a bat flying around during the concert! Here are a few pics.
This is a view of the beautiful mountains from the parking lot of the caverns.

The walk to the cave was on this country gravel road.
Then when we got to the mouth of the cave, there was a small bluegrass band there to entertain us while we waited to be escorted into the cave.
A couple of shots walking down into the Volcano Room where they hold the concerts.

After the concert we had dinner & topped the night off with Sweet Cici's yogurt. What an amazing weekend!!
