August Break #4
Every yer at the end of July and beginning of August the county fair is in town for about two weeks. Almost every year I went there with Kaefer, sometimes in the company with other friends, sometimes not. I remember it as always being hot.
This year, though, I didn't go. I figured that Kaefer now is old enough to go without the "parental supervision" and would probably have way more fun with her friend than with her boring mom who doesn't go on any rides anymore. For me it was a relief that I could just drop off the kids.
All these pictures are from last year's fair, when I took Kaefer and a friend there, but they then could take off by themselves. For me it was a photo outing that I enjoyed - and when I got tired I could give my feet a little treatment (which I didn't do)...
or eat lots of sweet and sticky stuff (which I don't like).
I'm always drawn to the animals at the fair and enjoy watching the 4H kids. For them this is a big event where they will see whether all their hard work was worth it (I guess it was no matter what - they learned something for life which is so much more important than a medal or any kind of prizes anyway).
I also like to stroll around the arts and crafts sections. This painting was created by an 8-year-old. Quite impressive for such a young age.
The Ferris Wheel is the only ride I would do - but even there I get a bit queasy. I guess I'm really getting old...
Do you like to go to the fair?
