County Fair

Can I milk another blog post out of my weekend? Of course I can, because the other thing I did over the weekend (Thursday night is the weekend, right?) was go to the Marshfield Fair.

We all just love the Marshfield Fair because there’s something for everyone.

There are giant pumpkins. That’s Hannah and her friend, Gianna, posing so graciously.

And crazy vegetable creations. This corn and cucumber canoe was really clever. Aren’t the asparagus oars the coolest?

There’s a demolition derby and that’s my favorite part of the fair. Well, that and the beer, but they sort of go hand in hand, don’t you think?

There are model trains. I think Dale would still be standing there watching the train go ’round if I hadn’t enticed him away with promises of more beer.

There are even things for my blog friends.

Swine for Ann.

And an AssWatch of a different sort for Dave.

Come back tomorrow and I’ll show you the one other teensytinylittle thing I did last weekend.

  1. I love me a good fair. Looks like yours was fun! The corn and cucumber canoe is a hoot! Great choice for the oars.

  2. Hannah and Gianna sounds like a new fall lineup! And probably better than many we’ll see;) I’m also imagining a pumpkin pie of great magnitutde!
    You sure know how to spend a Thursday! Cow butts, ~snort~ I think Dave has us all noticing “behind” the scenes now 😉

  3. Wow… you got teenagers to pose for a photo?? ha ha ha. I, too, like the demo derby. We go to the Topsfield Fair each year and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the racing pigs. We sit and wait for the racing pigs. It’s over in like a minute, but I love them. And the pulling teams (horses).

    And, tell Dale that Dan would be right next to him, watching the trains go ’round for days… Must be a guy thing.

  4. LOL…the last picture is a hoot! I love the demolition derby…and beeerrr!
    The girls really give the melon a sense of dimension, who’s gonna eat it?

  5. Country Fairs are always so much fun! I haven’t been to Marshfield in years.

    Hmmm……….I can’t wait to see what this teensy little thing is….

  6. he’s a cutie Carole! I wonder if he’s some kind of fancy pig with those rounded ears and his tan color? thanks for thinking of me!

  7. Um, does that canoe look really, really dirty to anyone else? No? Just me? All right then.

  8. No, I don’t think you should ever milk anything for a blog post. God knows I never do. Live up to my example, please. 😉

  9. Hey, I dragged out our county fair for nearly a week’s worth of blog posts — I say, go for it! 🙂

    Boys and toy trains. It’s a genetic thing. My Smokey would be there for hours.

  10. Of course, it counts! I love that you can get almost a week’s worth of blogging out of a weekend.

    Sounds like a wonderful way to spend a day.

  11. The cucumber boat looks neat! I used to live in a small town and we would have fair days like this…now..*sighs*..I live in a huge city and there’s no “home town” feeling anymore. I looked like it was fun though! I love fairs for the food myself :D.

  12. So the first time I got a good look at the back side of a cow was at the NYS fair- a huge affair. O-M-G said I.
