Lancaster County Fair

Teenage boys + sugary slurpies + excessive heat + carnival rides = a rainbow of fruit flavors

This is what we found out at our local county fair on Sunday. It is miserable outside right here, right now and completely unbearable! That means it's time for school. When the weather hits an all time high (with heat indexes of 110 degrees), it's always time for me to go back to work.

Here are some of our photos from our County Fair excursion. We do have plans for the Iowa State Fair this weekend, so hopefully the heat doesn't prevail. I'm guessing it will.

By the way, I like to antique my photos for the fair. It just seems to make everything look better.


I did not know that setting a table was something you could enter in the fair. It is darn cute!




My favorite even though it's not on a stick, but a fork instead!
Love that look!

A fun outing and relatively cheap compared to the state fair. Glad you went - sorry it was such a hot day.

What is a peach on a stick? And please don't tell me that it's the fresh fruit with a stick stuck in it;o)

Man, you can get just about anything on a stick today, can't you?

The antique-ness to the photos make them look like they're from the seventies...

Love that napkin holder on the place stetting! Clever and cute!

I have an incredible desire to go to the fair now. The only problem is it's after school starts...I don't want school to start....I like my summer vacation....Heard enough whining?
