The minions had a lot of fun scoping out the animals in the barns, hitting the giant slide, and exploring new sights and sounds.
I found this particular goat to be rather saucy.
When it comes to little man though, I think the ultimate highlight from this year's Fair was the model train set-up. It was huge, it was elaborate, and it was to scale which is very impressive due to its layout. This was his favorite car.
This weekend we headed down to the lake for some R & R. The minions enjoyed a little beach time, Grandpa H showed them how to float properly, and both minions spent a good chunk of time scoping out all the snails in the area.
Fall is right around the corner and I couldn't be happier about that fact. Thanks to a freak cold front a week or so ago, the temperatures here actually fell to the mid-60's for a brief instant and I happily took advantage of that arctic bliss and sported some handknit wool socks. It was heavenly. My hands have not been completely idle while we've been trying to squeeze the last drops of fun out of Summer and I'll have some fiber-y goodness to share in the next post. Speaking of posts, were you aware that the last post was my 200th blog post? Yeah, me neither. I should probably pay more attention to things like that, huh?
