Fun at the Fair!!!

What a beautiful day it was yesterday. It was so much fun at the State Fair. We got there when it openned at 10 in the morning. It wasn't so crowded at all and a nice little breeze. We went to the exhibits first,,and they had some very pretty quilts.

Some delightful cakes,,,look at the bride chasing the groom on this cake,,Daniel and I laughed so much at this one. And this pretty wintery cake!
And now for this hugh pumpkim. Over 1000 lbs.

And my sweet Hubby in front of his stinky tobacco plants. This is how tobacco is dried. Tennessee and Kentucky grow alot of this crop.

Now time for some cute critter pictures!!

Time for a little pig racing

And last, but not least,,some great art for the side shows. I thought these paintings were really cool.

We had a great day yesterday. It was just so nice to get away from the house and spend some time together. It was really hot later in the day so we made our way to our favorite mexican restaurant and cooled off with some frozen Margaritas and Fajitas. Today its been raining off and on and suppose to be cooler the rest of the week. It is going to feel very Fallish,,and I am more than ready for it. I hope all of my friends have a great week ahead too!

I haven't been to a State Fair in years but your photos made me feel as if I was right there with you. Looks like a great day. Especially the last part with margaritas and fajitas!!

Those quilts are beautiful. I'm always fascinated by them. And I like the artwork on the posters, too.

Your hubby looks like a really nice guy (he must be to have you!)

What a sweet post. I used to go to the fair when I was a kid in the country. Somehow the big city fairs just aren't as nice. Too commercial, to say the least (i.e. CA State Fair here in Sacramento.

But on another note, yea I got the crud from you. Who'd ever guess a cold could navigate cyberspace. But the good news is (well sorta), I managed to work all day today. 8 hr's, one day closer to retirement. Yee haw!
