It's fair time!

And you know what that means...

But as it happens...

...we tried something new this year.
Instead of the state fair, we went to the county fair.
Slightly smaller scale, but very fun!

With all the tractors, animals and creative stuff

but not quite the crowd.

Of course there were a couple of rides

thrown in for good measure.

But my favorite part was the turn of the (20th) century town

They actually did manual labor

without coercion.

This year, there was even a food I had never seen before...

Spaghetti Sundaes...

With truffles instead of meatballs!
Heavenly.

I love your trip Tracy! So much fun. Laughed about the manual labor! I need to send Kaish there for some manual labor. I have been super lax about chores this summer as we have had an extra zillion children running around each day and yesterday when I mentioned the chore chart you should have seen his face...like he was going to die because I make him work so hard. : )
