i am sooo looking forward to this weekend. we will get to visit with family i haven't seen for a while. we are taking our grandchildren with us. it is a 4hr. drive. hmmmm.... :0/
i haven't been to this particular fall fair in 28yrs. as a child we went every year. i have wonderful memories of this event. perhaps that is why i LOVE fall sooo much!!
the smell of hotdogs, and candy floss. apple cider. the 4H club's animal exhibits. the booths filled with pies and jams, and all things homemade. quilts, and blankets and baby clothes.
the sounds of the animals. the cows mooooing, the chickens clucking. goats and sheep baaaaing!
(love my animal sounds! heehee)
AND....the rides!! the ferris wheel, that i thought was sooooooo HUGE as a kid. the one i rode probably a thousand times! (perhaps a slight exageration!).
i can't wait to share all of this with my grandchildren. to create for them a memory, a little like my own. to walk for a bit down memory lane. to think about my Grandma (whom i miss dearly) for a while. to introduce the "city kids" to the country for weekend.
hope you all have a wonderful weekend. i'm sure i will!!
