Last saturday was a beautiful day and I was so lucky to be able to spend it at the County Fair in my hometown! I spent all of my childhood volunteering at the fair every year, first as a 4-Her, then later as a volunteer for the Agriculture and Horticulture department. So I drove down and picked my mom up and we headed out to the fair together. We saw, collections, fine arts, a live glass blowing/fusing demo, racing pigs, lambs, baby mini goats the size of chihuahuas (eee, so cute!), horse racing, poultry, ag history, tractor parade with bagpipers, dog obedience and agility demo, and finally floriculture and bonsai. Phew! Not bad for an admission price that's about the same as a movie ticket. :) Here are some of my photos from the day.

|Stunning dahlias in all shapes and sizes. Some were as big as dinner plates.|
