I love going to the fair! Something there just inspires the farmer in me!
Despite this year’s theme, I don’t think we experienced any music, magic or motion at the fair but I did get lots of good ideas…
But it’s an afternoon of free entertainment (if you don’t buy any food, ride any rides or play any games…) Chris bought a pair of sunglasses and we split a bag of cotton candy, so I guess it was an afternoon of relatively cheap entertainment. :o)
who said toys had to take batteries or be made by Nintendo to be fun and challenging???
The nice part of living in a pretty small, red-neck community is that you see people you know at the fair. We saw some of our youth group kids and some of our homeschooling friends, too.
But my favorite part is just looking at all the stuff that people make and all the farm animals…
I totally want to make one of these!
I loved the colors of these hydrangeas
the grange displays are one of my favorite things at the fair (this was my personal favorite even if it only got second place)
this was my favorite quilt! Just what I’d want to crawl under after a hard day’s work on the farm!
Robin’s rabbit won a red ribbon (that’s a lot of alliteration!)
I love black chickens!
I liked the iridescent blue stripe on this duck
“Ugliest Chicken At the Fair”
I just liked this cute little couple
“Freakiest Eyes at the Fair”
“Biggest Spurs at the Fair”
When the internet crashes, I’ll have to keep in touch with all my friends using carrier pigeons LOL
