Animals, sweet corn, midway rides, corn dogs, home baked good contests, garden vegetables entries, concerts, games, quilts, school exhibits, ice cream, milk shakes, funnel cakes, tractor pulls, demolition derby, hot sausage sandwiches, french fries, taffy, elephant ears, giant cheese sculptures, fried cookie dough...I could go on and on. Fairs are fun!
In August my family attended the Indiana State Fair. I went with different family members four times during the two week fair. There was so much to see (and eat) I needed more than one visit!
On Two Dollar Tuesday, my oldest daughter and I rode our bicycles to the fair, 15 miles one way. She recently graduated high school and I was able to spend some quality time with her when her siblings had to go back to school. We had great weather and rode on the Monon Trail for most of the trip.
We dropped our bikes off at the Free Pedal and Park corral and headed in for breakfast---Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream and a grilled cheese sandwich from the Dairy Barn.
Before we left, I snapped this picture of the Ferris Wheel.
We moved my daughter into college last weekend. My other two high school aged kids are busy with, school, youth group, swimming, and marching band. In two weeks I will be teaching a new group of three year-olds at preschool. The school year has begun.
Today, everything is very quiet at my house as my husband and I sit in the home office working at our computers. As I type this blog post I cannot wait until the fair comes back next August so I can make more memories with my family.

Enjoy these last days of summer!
