summer fun:: farm fair

Playing a little bit of "catch-up", time has not allowed me to share a few of our latest fun events until now.  So these photos are actually from last weekend, when we went up to the Harford County Farm Fair.  The fair is the agricultural / 4-H fair for the county where I grew up, and we enjoy it's small-town feel, and hubby loves to go up for the tractor pulls.  The draft horse pulls are more my speed (and much quieter!) but truly, its all fun. 
Some of our other favorites include "Candy and Cupcake", a children's musical show, that just happens to be performed by one of my mom's best friends.  Its a fun show that the kids always enjoy, and extra fun to have Miss Candy single them out and make them feel special.
All four of us love the "Dock Dogs" competition...I always think when I'm watching them that I'd love to train a dog to do this if and when we finally get a dog. For those who have never seen it, these dogs compete for how high and how far they can jump, into a large pool, as if off a dock.
And the Farm Fair is also about all the baby animals, the 4-H and produce displays, climbing on the tractors and heavy equipment that dealers display, talking to the local firefighters, and eating lots of hot dogs, funnel cake, and cotton candy.  Its all good clean fun (ok, the cotton candy is good sticky fun). And we always have a ball.  Going to the farm fair just says "summer".
