At the County Fair

Last Friday, the whole family headed to the County Fair. The theme this year was the "Grape Escape" which goes perfectly with the wine country locale.

Check out this giant grape fountain:


Some of us rode rides:





We admired animals:



I especially loved these five-day old piglets. I am convinced the one in the middle is smiling:



And these were my favorite quilts:





I have decided that when I finally get my dream house,
I am going to have this bathtub/wine barrel fountain in my backyard:



And here was a lovely surprise:



And one more photo just because Noodlebug was so darn cute blowing his pinwheel:

He's soooo cute Amy! I love the grape fountain......yes please. Also I do believe that piggy is smiling at you and may be a little sweet on you :) Congrats again on your rag quilt! You will have to teach me how to make one......I'm going to buy one of those Big Shots to cut my fabric.....so maybe that will help me get started. I just don't like measuring and cutting much :) Wow, this is a long comment....sorry! lol Have a great day xoxoxoxo
