Funny-isms from the State Fair

There are often things the girls say and do that I just have to capture on paper. Not only are they funny, I'm hoping for some good blackmail material later in life.

Here are a few from the State Fair yesterday:

Hope's definition of a Dooley: skinny body with a fat booty

"This is a great car--look at the cool cupholders in the back seat!" (can't remember which one said it, but they were both oohing and aahing over them)

"Why do they call it Crazy Mouse?" There's no mouse, just a bucket. It should be called "Crazy Bucket."...Hope (she had a point--I didn't see any mice and have never thought to question the name)

Caroline's shirt at the end of the day:
3 root beer stains
nacho cheese on the back
grease from leaning against something
butter drips from corn on the cob
powdered sugar from funnel cake

Other fun memories:
Riding the Love Bug with Hope and laughing so hard that my face was wet with tears.
Watching Brian do a little dance in the fun house
Meeting up with friends
Sharing a funnel cake
Hope's tummy before the rides
Watching Hope and Caroline on the other Love Bug ride
Hope stepping up to kick the ball and everyone gasping at the oomph she put into it
The Bird show--even though it's the same one every year, it's still good
Hope squirting herself in the head with hand sanitizer
Spending 10 mins filling out the waivers so the girls could climb the rock wall for 10 seconds
Walking past the entire parade so that we could get to the front of it and see the entire thing
Looking for the man selling umbrellas
Listening to the girls in the backseat reminisce about how much fun they had last year
