Last year this stack of pumpkins was 3 x this size. Wondering if the heat and drought damaged the crop. It was hot and humid, can you tell. Everyone dressed for cooler weather and were complaining how hot it was. The weather forecast was cool weather coming in before the rain around noon. Sure enough both happened. We left early, around 1. Three hours was enough today. My friend is a nurse and worked last night a 12 hour shift. I got a week-end pass and I can go back. It's less than an hour to get there.
There were four groups of these hay letters. I think they wanted people to sit on them. They looked nice.
And my friend Cari of Cash and Cari (HGTV). People were waiting in line to have their picture taken. I had mine taken last year with her. She walked away for the line for a minute and I snapped this. I told her I was just going to take a quick pic and that I had gotten my picture last year. Then I told her, "I love you." She said, "I love you ,too." Ahhhhh. She is just darling and no I don't know her.
We had a box lunch....great salad, chips, cookie and a drink. We ate inside one of the historical buildings that was had A/C. The doors were open so it was not really too cool but out of the sun and the real heat.
Hoping to go back tomorrow after Goose's soccer game. Maybe I will sit in on one of the presentations. It's hard to see in one day. I think if you go one day you push yourself to see everything. So I bought the 3 day pass. In advance it was $13. At the gate for just today was $16. How about that for a deal, he he. I must say that things were pricey.
So more to share when I return.
Hubby has to stay off his feet all week-end (hip strain/sprain) and it's okay with him if I go back to the Fair.
Guess what I got for our anniversary and for my birthday coming up.......a ticket to Colorado to see the kids and grands. So excited.
See you later.
