Fall fair fun

Don't you just love this time of year?  Fall is my favorite time of year.  I love the transition of the seasons.  I love the cool crisp nights and mornings.  I love the smells of the season too.  Everything about it. Pumpkin patches, falling leaves, apple cider, cool breezes, hayrides...need I say more?  (smile)

I have done some decorating that I will share with you soon.  Still have a little tweaking to do. We even decorated the playhouse too!  I will share that soon too.  

Another fun thing I like about fall is when the fair comes to town. We always enjoy going and watching Darbee ride the rides and play games.  We also enjoy the exhibit barn and petting zoo.  This year, we encouraged Darbee to enter some items in the fair.  She was very excited and eager to participate.  She entered five items and I entered one of my primitive pumpkins. We couldn't wait for the fair to start and go see if we won any ribbons.  

We went opening night.  There were a lot of entries this year! Darbee was in the pre-k-2nd grade category. Her face lit up when we saw her exhibits. 

Her "D" canvas won a blue ribbon! 

She also entered a heart basket that won a participation ribbon....

and a rubber band bracelet that won a green participation ribbon.

She entered her Zentangle that she created in art class several weeks ago.  
Guess what?
Another blue ribbon!

And last....she entered her pottery bowl that she created in the first art class.
You know what?
Another blue ribbon!!!

I was so proud for her and she was very excited!  

I got a participation ribbon on my pumpkin. :)

We will work this year on some more entries for next year.  What fun!

After seeing our exhibits, we walked around the midway and she rode some rides.
We ran into my uncle and his family and Darbee enjoyed riding with Jenny.

Such a fun time...

Until next time....
