County Fair

Ever since we have lived here in Delisle,
which has been 7 summers now,
I have wanted to go to the county fair
in the neighboring town.
This year we finally did!
I was not disappointed.

There were so many "best" categories.
Best quilting.
Best knitting.
Best bread.
Best jelly.
I'll bet over 100!
This is what I came to see.

Then there were so so many things that kids could enter.
Best mud pie. Best MUD PIE!
Modelling clay,
crayon drawing,
Best 4H book.
Best paper craft.
Best craft kit.
So fun.
Cash prizes too.
If we are here next year,
Athena has a list of things she would like to enter as well.
And we will.
What is a more wholesome way
to spend an afternoon
with Auntie and Uncle from Quebec?

Ice cream.
Ring toss.
Hot dogs.
Bean bag throw.

After all was said and done I must add:
"Our state fair is a great state fair...
its the best state fair in our state!"
