Rediscovering The County Fair

The county fair never lets us down. 

The up-close encounters with our favorite farm animals are always a highlight of the summer…

Like our almost national bird, the turkey.

Who you callin’ turkey, you Turkeys?

I’m telling you, these pigs clean up almost as nice as our Little Squealers.

“Mama he’s trying to “get my goat”!”

fair5

You look all sweet and innocent all freshly sheared and all, but you nearly scared the life out of 2 of my boys with your angry bleating!

And nothing hits the spot better on a hot day than farm fresh fair food. “Grilled cheese, milkshakes, and pork burgers, please!”

Strolling through the county fair for the first time strollerless. Ahhh, freedom!

How about YOU, do you visit the county fair in the summer?  What’s your favorite stop?  What’s your must eat fair food? 

Next stop, the Indiana State Fair!

    Glad you all had such a good time.

    My husband and I went to the state fair years ago, and we still talk about the lemonade. Truly in a class of its own. Oh, and the gigantic bull, with horns longer than I would have thought possible. And the funny sideshow that had amazing-sounding descriptions of ordinary things. Such as the “man eating tarantula”, that ended up being a man who put a tarantula in his mouth, rather than a gigantic tarantula that eats men. That one made me laugh.

    I had a flock? of Wild turkeys nearly scare the life out of me! I was wandering around Kickapoo State Park taking pictures. I exited the woods into a clearing and there were seriously like a dozen wild turkeys. You shoulda heard the sounds they were making. A couple of them made a step or two towards me and I took off running for the car. Nothing says fun like a “big” girl with a camera around her neck carrying 2 lenses wearing a camera backpack loping towards a red car like that!!! I was pretty sure that if the turkeys didn’t kill me, the heart attack I thought I was having would!………Did get a couple pictures though 🙂
