Durham Fair

Thursday afternoon, mom and dad headed up to the Durham Fair with friends.  No, we were not invited to come along.  The fairgrounds does not allow pets due to health reasons - a real bummer!

Everyone loves the animals~

 Mom was very impressed with Billy's beard~

 A polka-dot chicken!
 We wonder how long she primped in front of the mirror to look this good!

 This sheep was dressed in his jammies and ready for bed~

 Mom and Miss Lauren loved the needlework building. 

 And they all loved the antiques~
 Especially the woodworking tools~
 This is not a real hamburger and fries. It's cake!  The hamburger and fries are dessert!
 And this barn is totally edible!
 Dad had his favorite fair food - apple crisp, along with a loaded baked potato and a bacon and egg sandwich and mom had her favorite - her giant sugar donut~
 For the first time ever, there were two elephants at Durham Fair.   They put on a show at 6PM and the peeps missed it by an hour!  grrrrrrrrrrrr
 They didn't see the pumpkin because they didn't know where the heck it was hidden - but this pumpkin set a record for the largest in the state of Connecticut.   
Imagine how many pies you could make with this baby!
A great time was had by all and they can't wait to go back next year!

So until next time..............

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

Wow that looks like a pretty cool fair. Why was the sheep in his jammies? We have fairs around here too but I haven't gone, I have taken Beckett to the Farmer's market perhaps we should take Keltic someday soon too.

Wowzers, does that fair look like a lot of fun! I can't believe they wouldn't let you go, though - no fair! (No pun intended!)
That burger & fries cake is awesome - and I think our mom tried to take a bite of your dad's apple crisp!
That looked like a BIG bunny! Did he win a prize?!?!
Great pix!
Play bows,

OMD, that goat's beard is PAWSOME!!!! I'm tryin' to grow mine that long, butts Ma keeps trimmin' it...pfffft!
Ma was all droolin' over that pie!!! Thou, she said it would have to be cherry or boysenberry if she was gonna indulge (I would eat ANY kinds!!)
Looks like a FABulous fair, maybe next year your peeps can dress you up like a goat (you better start growin' out your beards now) and you can gets in!
