Going To The Fair?

Ah yes, the Arizona State Fair is almost here!
October 12 - November 4, 2012

Going to a state or county fair is one of the most fun and American things you can do!
Cotton candy, corn dogs, kettle corn, funnel cake....
rides, rides, rides....
and SO much more!!

Have you ever entered one of your amazing crafts, recipes or other handiwork's in the fair?

Can you imagine winning a BLUE RIBBON
It's a GREAT feeling!

We encouraged our Young Women (church girls ages 12-18)
to come up with any project they wanted
and enter it into the fair!

Here was my invite to them...

I designed the information card and blue ribbon to slide right down inside the popcorn bag, with the blue ribbon tails hanging out of the bag.
I added a little bottle of Bath and Body Works Country Chic lotion (found in the clearance bin) into each bag to make it a little extra special.

It was amazing what our girls (and leaders too) came up with for their projects!

EVERYONE won a ribbon!!!

Can you even believe your eyes over this GORGEOUS gingerbread autumn farmhouse?  Seriously, it's unbelievable!  
It was made by one of our Young Women leaders, Hillari, and
IT WON BEST OF SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was so not surprised!

And since we're here talking about fairs,
I'll throw in a few shots of our family day at
The San Diego County Fair
from this summer.

I hadn't been to a fair in almost THIRTY YEARS!
It was SO FUN!

One man band!

The animal exhibits are a must see!
I mean, look how adorable those baby piglets are!!


I scream, you scream.......

Cowboy and I saw Lonestar in concert
while the kids stayed on the rides!
They sounded GREAT and
it was very romantic!  :)

A day at the fair is a WONDERFUL family activity!!!
