what we did


it's true...we love to go to the fair!


these girls are fair girls


these state fair girls
looking for the seal


we ate greasy fair food
can't remember what this is called
but it was tasty


something here is hysterical...
i love it when my youngest gets a kick out of something


i can't go to the fair without checking out the butter cow
always my very first stop


29 cups of milk to make one pound of butter
astonishing!


i'm training my grand-daughters to love the butter cow


a room full of dahlia's 
every color imaginable


i had no idea these flowers were so lovely
they remind me of fireworks
a huge burst of symmetrical color


miss claire cristie in her balloon hat


don't you think this is a pretty awesome tractor?


we always pet the ponies


this is a fun mama who brings her girls every year


i love looking at the birds







cute girls in their Wrangler's showing their goats
the judging was very interesting


oldest and youngest sons
their dad
my sweetie


beautiful girls i adore


too tired to walk
satisfied and ready to go home


we need about three more hours
leaving too soon
but such a good fair day


the end

Funnel Cake (because you feed the dough through a funnel into the grease to fry it). I had one and you were right, it was definitely something I needed to try, so good!

Fun day. Fun pictures. I'm glad you remember to bring your camera!

this takes me back a few weeks to our visit to the county fair we enjoyed while visiting family in Ohio. Our favorite thing of all was visiting the goats...something so endearing about them!

these photos are vibrant and joyous.
perfect.
I think Canadian fairs are kind of lame in comparison to American ones...
perhaps I'll give it a try again .

I'm feeling like I really missed out! Maybe next year it will seem doable. And really? There's a Butter Cow?? Who knew? Love you Cristie!
