Deb, I laughed every time I thought about you telling me to come home from the Fair in one piece...Just picturing Shelby and me ripping and tearing and getting on all those rides at the Fair, and coming home all broken up. (Deb, at justcats-deb.blogspot.com left me a comment saying to come home in one piece)
As bad as I hate to admit it, we didn't ride the carousel! Oh, we hummed and hawed, we studied and discussed it, and watched group after group fill up the hobby horses and gallop round past us while I stood wondering if I would be able to put one foot in the stirrup, pull myself up, and throw my leg over the horse...and could I dismount without ending up on the floor under the horse? So, maybe next year.
The carousel picture was from the Fair in 2015 and that's Shelby in front. Can't believe I didn't take any pictures of the rides this year.
But, this picture...
would you just look at that playhouse! Well, it's not a playhouse, but the set-up of fence panels reminds me of my playhouse. Oh my gosh! Could I do that here??
We looked at the sweet animals...
and the funny ones...
and one I wanted to take home...
There were lots of new sections added this year...
Pretty, but many of the old things were gone.
one of our favorite places to sit.
This is the entrance to the Fair.
Guess that's about it. Sure sorry there is no picture of me on a hobby horse.
Thank you for visiting.
P.S. Forgot to mention how much fun we had. A day at the State Fair with Shelby is always fun. We walked and talked and laughed. We ate fried dough and funnel cake and NC State Butter Almond ice cream. We sampled hush puppies and chips, and peanuts. We sat and watched people. I am already looking forward to the Fair next year.
