Monday : State Fair

Ah, September.


Bright, screeching, colorful metal, smooth-talkin' carnies, and the smell of hot oil and sugar.
Must the the Fair!

On a sidenote... Maddie was free on this day (children under 12) and because we're home educators, the rest of us got in for a dollar.  : )
Also buy-one-get-one-free wristbands for the carnival rides.
All good.




We didn't go in to the 100 lb rat's exhibit, though I hmmed and looked closely every time we passed it--sorely tempted.
"I bet it's a capybara," said Trev, not at all curious.  "They probably strapped a plastic tail on it."
When we got home last night, I looked up "100 pound rat"... and sure enough, there was one in a carnival... capybara.  No tail.  : )













The DNR building... fish, fox, all kinds of different pelts... one of our favorite parts of the fair!











So fun, all that gorgeous
flashing
whirring
twinkling
humming
roaring
rainbow goodness.
Makes for a Happy sort of life.
