Nothing like the fair!!
Lauren is a fan of the rides, the lights and the spectacle of people she saw. And the people are a fan of Lauren. She was the cutest kid at the fair and I'm including the baby goats we saw. She kept calling it the "Fair Zoo" since she really liked the 4H animal exhibts. I think that she was most impressed, however, by the snapping turtle in the creek that we saw on our walk back from seeing the "Fair Zoo".
I always loved going to the fair and I have very wonderful memories of going with my mother and grandmother and eating fish sandwiches, elephant ears, Malone's State Fair taffy and playing BINGO! and on the last night of the fair, I always got a mylar balloon that stayed up for weeks!! I hope Lauren has similar memories.
