In the spirit of the Gem State, we went to Spud Day in Shelley. Spud Day is a set day of the year in certain communities where the potato is celebrated. It consists of potato sack races, lots of food, (including free baked potatoes), a tug-of-war with a pit of mashed potatoes in the middle, and a demolition derby. It is strangely awesome.
This is the third year I've been to Spud Day and the second for Barbara. It's kind of this sick tradition that we get a giant smoked turkey leg each time. Nothing brings people together like passing around a giant hunk of meat, I guess. The next three pictures are Spud Day in 2006, 2007, and 2008.
I won that beanie I'm pointing at in the demolition derby--which is way better than the hat Tyson won the first year we went. Take that, Tyson.
