While I have been to the N.C. State Fair, I have not *been* to the fair like Suzanne Stanard.
Stanard, who grew up in Winston-Salem, has been going since she was a kid. She is a lover of all things fair, especially the food. She highlighted her eating conquests a couple of years ago as the fair's first Deep Fried Ambassador. And she continues to record fair highlights on her own blog Pretty Swell.

Now she's taking her kids, ages 4 and 1, along for some fair adventures. They're making new memories that, I'm certain, won't just happen at the deep fried Girl Scout cookie and cinnamon roll stands this year (though Stanard will definitely be darkening those doors). The animals and rides top her older daughter's list.

I caught up with her at the fair last week and we chatted about her favorite spots and the food she just can't wait to eat. Watch the video for more.

Thanks Suzanne!

The fair runs through Sunday.

Go Ask Mom features local moms every Monday.
