Randy and I were lucky enough to be able to spend a few days up in Keystone early last week. We loved the gorgeous views and the change of pace. As we were walking through the village, I saw a sign for a Bacon Festival! Really? Bacon?! It was on the weekend, which just happened to be Randy’s birthday too. The universe was talking to us and I was more than willing to listen. I’m in!
On Sunday, we knew we’d be sampling lots of tasty Bacon, so we started the day off with a great ride. After a short downpouring of rain, the skies cleared and it was Game On! Bacon Time!
Let me just tell you they had everything Bacon you could imagine! Randy’s favorite was the Beer Cheese soup made with Bacon drippings. My favorite=chocolate dipped bacon! Yep, you read that right! My two favorite things combined into one mouthful of deliciousness!!! Randy’s two Birthday treats were a Bacon Fudge Puppy on a Stick and a Bacon S’more Salted Caramel Sundae.
Not only was there bacon everywhere, but there were Bacon fans too! There was even a fierce game of Pin the Tail on The Hog!
And for you Dash fans…don’t worry he wasn’t forgotten. He made out with some Beggin Strips and the new Beggin Party Popper Treats. This was a true celebration of Bacon!
After filling our bellies with Bacon we headed to class. We studied long and hard and at then end of the day, we were proud graduates of the highly esteemed Bacon University. The Chief Bacon Officer awarded our diplomas and the Bacon Commissioner even photo-bombed my graduation picture….guess that means I earned top Baconator honors!
My next mission is to become the Bacon Festival Queen, the winner gets to dawn the Bacon dress…yes, a dress made out of Bacon! What could make my parents more proud?!
We had an awesome time and think we have now started a yearly tradition!
