I regret that I didn’t get out more this past Thanksgiving weekend.
We were out at a country fair most of Saturday, and while there we:
- watched horse-jumping
- went on rides
- let the kids try to win carnival games (my son won a guitar seconds after I told him that these games are rigged and that he’d never win)
- bought fries, ice cream, sponge candy, a deep fried Mars bar, etc
- and more
Here’s a pic of this years biggest pumpkin contest:
THIS PUMPKIN IS 1066 POUNDS!!!!!
Crazy, isn’t it? How many pumpkin pies do you think you could get out of this thing???
I DID TAKE SEVERAL other pictures of the fair, but I decided not to post them.
But here’s one I took during a short walk we took on Sunday.
We are hoping to go out on Wednesday and enjoy the season some more. I took a vacation day for my wife’s birthday. Normally, we go out somewhere OVERNIGHT, but she’s too busy with a new venture she’s started making baby blankets and nursing covers, etc.
We might take a day trip out to a place called “Lake on the Mountain”.
