Went camping and discovered
Dottie Dog loves roasted marshmallows.

Doggie sat Skye the Grand-dogger.
Oh my goodness is she cute, mischievous and fast!

Went to the area's largest fair.
There were so many entries in all the fair categories.  One whole building was just photography.  Another building had artwork, sculpture and various collection entries.

This is one side of the six sided, 12-15 foot tall floral entry display that was in the center of the Horticulture Building.  Shelves and display racks lined the walls and were filled with fruits, vegetables and even more flowers.

Unfortunately, my phone battery died and 
this is the only pic I got from the fair.

When we stepped into yet another exhibit building, my mouth dropped open.  I could have spent the whole day there.  Half of the building was canned fruits and vegetables, breads, cakes and pastries.  The other half of the building was knitting, crocheting, quilting and needlework.   There were hundreds of cross stitch entries including ornaments, pillows, fobs, framed pieces and towels. 

Hubby and I also walked through the commercial buildings.  As we walked into one of the buildings, before I was even able to see through the crowd of people, Hubby remarked that he had never seen so many sewing machines.   The large display was at least 20 feet long and I don't know how many sewing machines were there.  I really had a hard time walking away from the machine demonstrations!  Another building had a large display of a different brand of sewing machines that was equally as impressive as the first one we saw.

Of course, we had to walk through all the farm buildings and see the cows, goats, sheep, bunnies, chickens and pigs.  Unfortunately, the horse barn was closed.  We also saw antique gas and steam engines, antique fire trucks and farm equipment and toured all the RV's on display.  

After all that, we had to sample the fair food!

Come back soon for the rest of the story....

Hubby is on vacation tomorrow, so we get a 3-day weekend!
