This year also marked Little A's first trip to the fair. We had been talking all day today about what animals he was going to see, and the fair did not disappoint. Sheep, goats, newborn calves, chickens, horses, puppies, bunnies, ducks, geese.
But the really big excitement came with the myriad of farm equipment and tractors.

To those of you who know my husband, this photograph should not come as a surprise.
I like the way the lights from the ride are captured in the background. Notice the stuffed animal my son is clutching? Yeah, some really slick carnie swindled me into playing hoops for that toy. Hope ya enjoy it kiddo. Your $15 cheapie Made in China Bow Whoa Doggie. Lesson learned: Never wander away from husband on the Midway.
Finally, here we are on the way out of the fairgrounds, stopping to listen to a bluegrass band.
Little A loved the Fair. Momma A needs to ingest a lot of antacid. Good times all around.
