Thanks for inviting us to the fair! It has been quite a while since I have visited one…
I will be going to one of the largest State Fairs next week….
Minnesota State Fair
Fun! I love fairs, especially the 4-H fairs. 🙂
Oh I want an elephant ear! Can’t find them here in Florida. Also, I’ve never been that into horses but Pat has certainly turned my head. What a sweet, soft countenance. Your adorable pictures of the little girls makes one wonder if all Michigan children have blue eyes? You truly capture the human experience with such a loving view. Thank you for our visit to the fair!
Thanks for bringing us to the fair…I love the animal barns and it’s always a pleasure watching the kids, their expressions are priceless!
Oh, I am definitely honking, Kathy! Love the pics! So THAT’s where that little girl comes from! 😉 And PAT, the horse, looks magnificent; there’s gotta be Arab in there somewhere, judging from the shape of his head. Wow…
I think Hank would be honking if he saw this…
I do in fact LOVE a county fair. 😀 The one we have here in my newest county is awfully tiny, though!
My Fair is not a county fair but one for the entire state of New York. Though it does has small fair charm in the farm animal barns very much like the photos you have shared with us here.
beep, Beep, BEEP! Those were some GREAT downhome photos!
Honk, Honk, Honk!!! Ohhhhhhh, of course it’s the fair! How cool, and what wonderful photos! Thanks for taking me as it’s not in the cards for me this year. Here’s a public admission: I have never heard of elephant ears as a form of fair fare! Wonderful to learn something every day (still). I am so glad to see all the animal and kid pics – just charming! Hooray for country fairs and for you 🙂
Honking enthusiatically. I love country fairs!! And would have been the “girl and her cattle” at about the same age. Echoing Susan D….. just charming 🙂
pretty fair eye there
LOVE county fairs! Love the ‘eye’ and the blond little girls…
Fairs.. I could take ’em or leave ’em, although the county fairs are sooo much better than the state fairs. So much cheaper, too!
We’ve lived in TX for almost 13 years now and have only been to the TX State Fair twice, even though it’s less than an hour’s drive WITH traffic.
A fun time was had by all! Loved the Eye of Pat and the little girl who wasn’t paying attention reminds me so much of Kat at that age.
thank you all for the nice comments & compliments! As for all little girls in Michigan being blond and blue-eyed, we do have a fair number of Scandanavian-type descendents here. But probably the reason I gravitate toward blue/blue-eyed girls is that they remind me of a certain daughter. (She said: “Mom, these last two pics look just like me as a child!” Yep. That’s probably why.
As some of you may have realized if you read a more recent blog, I basically attended the fair in case Barry fell due to his knee troubles. My job description was the Rescue Department. But I think I wandered away from him in the chicken barn…havin’ too much fun shooting pics of ducks and horses, you know.
Glad you enjoyed!
Nothing like critters to inspire the photographer eye…
Yep, wolfsrosebud, those critters are sure photogenic! 🙂
