It's the Place to Be

This past weekend was our annual county fair and it was a great fair weekend! The weather was so nice and it was sunny all weekend (with the exception of a freak downpour Saturday evening...)! I actually went to the fair every day it was open which is unusual for me! Normally I get to go once with Collin but this year since our book club had a booth I went on Thursday to work in the booth, Collin and I had our date night on Friday there, Saturday I went in the morning for the parade and to work the booth for a short bit, and then Sunday Collin and I went back because it was officially our turn to work the booth! I had a lot of fun the whole weekend! And I think our booth was very popular! We had balloons, tattoos, cross necklaces, button pins, seashells with Bible verses, a prayer box and candy! The kids seemed to especially like us because we gave out free tattoos and balloons. Unfortunately by the time it was mine and Collin's shift we only had about 8 balloons when we started and we quickly ran out. We also ran out of necklaces! But we still gave away tons of tattoos. =)

I told you guys on Friday I submitted five photos to the fair for judging and viewing and I actually won two ribbons! I won a second place and a third place ribbon on two of my photos! I was so shocked and yet so excited! I honestly was not thinking I'd win anything!

After our time was up working the booth Collin and I headed over to Solomon's Island and had dinner and I got some ice cream. It was so beautiful on the water and we made it there just in time for the sunset - my favorite! And we were even fortunate enough to be able to catch a band that was playing some praise music at the gazebo where we have played with our worship band before! They were pretty good, too!

We love to look around at all the exhibits of produce, flowers, and arts. This was a GIANT pumpkin. It weighed 334lbs... Most of the others were less than 200!

Our county fair parade would not be complete without some tractors. Goes with the whole tractor pull event they have all weekend. =)

This balloon was slightly deflated but still had enough helium in it that it would stay semi-suspended. Collin thought it was so cool and was playing with it literally almost the entire afternoon! I even got a video of him having fun with this balloon! haha

I would say it was quite a fantastic weekend! I love the county fair and I'm so glad that this year's fair was so fun and delightful! Plus, it was the perfect welcome weekend to autumn!

I hope you my dear friends had weekends that were as lovely as mine! Now to face the week and get ready for the month of October!
