it's county fair time in ohio! our favorite is in darke county...and it always pleasantly is going on just as school is starting...a happy trinket to remind us that there's still a tad bit of summer left. i love the county fair with its stalks of corn and giant pumpkins decked out in ribbons...funny animals promenading around... deep-fried sweets and colors and people watching as far as the eye can see. my fingers itch all year round for it. the boys the took me last night! we pretended we didn't just come from work and school and embraced the smell and feel of summer night in the air...staying out 20 minutes past bedtime and having pizza for the 2nd night in a row. who say's summer is over?

isn't she the most beautiful cotton candy lady you've ever seen? i melted right along with the sugar when i saw her.
it was a wonderful time...max won a fish and named him mr. goldberg. mr. goldberg is currently swimming around in a mason jar by max's bed. and every year i end up leaving the fair wanting a pet rabbit and wishing i knew how to grow giant pumpkins.
a girl can dream, can't she?
happy happy weekend, everyone!
