the county fair

There is just something about the little county fair in my hometown. I love going back. Its all summertime and freedom, and high school kids walking around like they own the place. And then they grow up and have babies, and complain about what the new high school kids are wearing these days. Its the perfect cycle.

We took a little one to the parade who is just learning to wave, so naturally, we got all the candy. If you want sidewalk candy, take a toddler.

We always browse the fair entries. I like looking at the comments on the canned goods and jams. Because I am an old person inside.

Its fun to look in the animal barns. The kids are always sweeping, and the cages are decorated with signs and ribbons. Its nice to remember that there are farm animals that are treated with love and care.

This is an elephant ear. The only dessert you ever need at the fair. So messy, but so worth it.
