Going to the PNE every Summer is a tradition that I will never let die. Even though it feels like we go for a shorter and shorter amount of time each year, I just can’t not see all those adorable farm animals and eat loads of deep fried goodness.
This year our Whitecaps tickets got us into the PNE for free which was awesome. The only thing that sucked was that we missed the last show of the Super Dogs, which bummed everyone out. We are obsessed with the Super Dogs.
I can’t remember where I read it or heard it but I was informed of the PNE having Deep Fried Onion Blooms this year. SO EXCITED! Deep Fried Onion Blooms are on my Food Bucket List, so you know I had to indulge. The dipping sauce was spicy and the onion batter was delicious. It was a little softer then I was expecting and definitely needed a knife and fork but it was super tasty. Chad, Elise, Ryan, and myself shared one. Dario basically ate a whole one himself.
Chad was not feeling very good the next morning and blamed the Onion Bloom for his bathroom woes, but given that I have a super sensitive stomach and did not get sick despite eating the Onion Bloom as well makes me think Chad was wrong about the Deep Fried Oniony goodness.
Hello Farm Animals!
Sheep! My favorite!
Clearly my favorite part of the PNE. I tried to get a job there one Summer but it never came to fruition. Sad Face.
Anything to do with Farming, Farm Animals, and THE Farm are untouchable in my book. Ryan and Chad finally realized that Elise and I will always love The Farm (My grandparents farm) more than anything. By the time they came around The Farm was gone so they will never understand.
I never feel shorter than Elise until someone takes a picture to prove it.
Ryan got his chance to race on the track. He was faster than the speed of light.
Chad failed to inform me that my impromptu photo shoot took place right in front of a red van. Awkward.
We seem to spend a lot of time on the PNE grounds in the Summer. It kind of feels like my second home since it’s literally 10 minutes from my parents home and my brother works here and so much of what we do involves the PNE. Sport, Horses, Fairs. SO MUCH GOODNESS! These are my stomping grounds.
I love you Fair at the PNE.
