|SuperH took this and it's pretty good! I'm in front of the local dairy stand.|
|I made this shirt. I like how it turned out. It's the free Sorbetto|
pattern from Colette patterns. It was really easy if your looking
to learn this would be a good one to start on.
Oh, the buttons are vintage!
If you've been reading this blog for a while you know I love the fair. In fact, it's the fair that got me back into blogging after my long hiatus when Conner was born. We go every year with my parents in celebration of Hunter's birthday and it's just such a golden time.
Any way, they did have a section of the fair devoted to old buildings that are permanent structures there. It was like a mini Green Field Village and it was fabulous. Of course I loved it, seeing those buildings all decorated. There were two homes (one was a log cabin) a doctors office, a one room school, an old church and even an old merry-go-round the kids could play on.
The church was cool. I don't want to hear any one complaining about being uncomfortable in a modern church! This building was all about function. SuperH got up in front and we sat in the very wooden, hard pews and listened to his first sermon, which consisted of the hymn "pop goes the weasel" a prayer for an "old lady whose house burned down. Let's pray for her and give her money" and then the blessing and dismal to go eat "ice cream for a snack". It was very moving.

This year my sister Heather also went with us and it was just so fun. And it was the first year the boys went on rides. Conster is such a serious rider! Hunter is in his element imagining something as soon as the ride goes. We ate way way too much, saw so many cute animals (Conster's favorites were the horses) fed a camel, saw great quilts and spent much needed quality time together. That's what the fair is really about; community and family.
|Indeed they are loony.|
|Strike a pose.|
This is what happens after a day at the fair (before we even got out of the parking lot).
Check back tomorrow for a chance to enter another give-a-way!
And now, more cute animals.
|He's my animal.|
|Gives new meaning to the species being called "hare".|
|"Help, my ears are so big it's trailing in the water!"|
|Why is this guy sitting in his water dish? So the other's can't use it?|
|I love donkeys so much!|
|This guy is definitely a rock-n-roll chicken with a british accent.|
