Apart from not having The Scot with me, this year's fair was similar to last year's (albeit with lovely overcast skies as opposed to glaring hot sun).
We saw some animals:
Appreciated the craftiness and skills of fellow Wisconsinites:
Ate the best cream puffs known to mankind:
And generally had a fun day out.
I braved the expo hall to get a new salsa-making/food processing gadget after the one I bought last year (and loved) cracked and had to be thrown away. *Note to self - whatever the salesguy says, they are not dishwasher safe.
My goal to not end up being the person who carries everything around the fairgrounds meant taking a tiny purse. And a tiny purse = tiny dolly. Phoebe was happy to come along. She even brought her new 'wubba chiken' to visit the fancy chickens in the small animal barn.
I don't know when the next time I'll get to the fair will be. Maybe not for a few years. It's always a bit crazy, but always lots of fun. Whenever the day will be, I'm already looking forward to it.
