A Day At The Fair


One more week before school starts so I wanted to do something fun. Boy, I didn't realize how difficult it is to get a teen-ager out the door to do something fun with his parents! However, he found out his cousin was going to be at the fair during the same time we were and suddenly he was ready to go.

We were pretty hungry when we got there so we went straight for that wonderful greasy fair food. Boy have prices gone up.

Oh yes, my #1 got me a new camera so I had to take a lot of pictures. It's so small, the perfect size to slip inside my purse. I chose a Cannon SD1100 in, "Bohemian Brown". Doesn't that color name sound exotic.


While there we saw duck races,

different kinds of reptiles,

beautiful cows,

and small ones too!

There were so many beautiful flowers. I won't put all of them on here but they were so pretty.
This little guy stole the show though. He had pollen over his entire body, it was a fun picture.


I did manage to get in a few pics with my boy!

It was good when the day ended as my feet were getting tired.

And so it begins! Where is the darn car!

Oh yes! We ended the evening by going to "Claim Jumpers". We didn't get any dessert but we did pass the dessert tray!



Can you guess what the first picture on this post is?

It is an old out-house next to an old one room schoolhouse relocated on the fairgrounds. Before you go "eew" don't worry it's no-longer being used. The old white chippy paint made the perfect picture!

An outhouse! That's cool. I was out on Sunday taking pictures at my grandma's property of old sheds and abandoned pick-up trucks. Blessings.. Polly

Hi,
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. It is hard to believe that school will be starting and soummer is coming to a close.
We missed the fair this year and I don't think we will make it to the State Fair either. It is a fun thing that we have enjoyed with our boys over the years.
JOY!

Great pictures and I especially love the one with you and your son. I understand where you are coming from as I have two sons. My youngest actually got up at 5 AM to go to a flea market with us on Mother's Day!! It was a joyful day!!

Cute pics of the outhouse! I wasn't sure what it was..but recognized the hydrangea.

Glad to hear y'all had a wonderful time together! Nothing beats that - except for the greasy fair food! Anything deep fried?

xoxo
