Hello everyone! I've been getting such a warm welcome from you all....it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Please stick around, I'll make it worth your while. That's right...I'm thinking giveaway. I don't know exactly what yet. I was waiting until I had a decent number of readers so I didn't feel too pathetic if I did a giveaway and only like 5 people commented. But at the moment I have no excuses....so stay tuned for more details...
For now, here's some more rural America fun for you...
We spent the day at the Barnstable County Fair. This thing has been going on for over 150 years. So I tend to try to plan a summer visit to the cape to go with the kids, since I've yet to find anything to compare here in Jersey. Don't get me wrong...I'm sure there is something...I just haven't been yet.

There were 2 things I didn't quite remember about the fair:
1. It's freakin expensive. I mean one ride for $5?!?! But luckily it was arm band day and I made sure we got our money's worth.
2. There are just too many ridiculously-bad-for-me-but-oh-so-yummy food options. Really everywhere I looked, I thought, "no, THAT's what I'm craving" I didn't eat it all, but believe me, I ate enough.
And, no, no pictures of the food. I was too busy gobbling it. And just writing about it is making me hungry...I'm glad I don't have to look at it.
Of course I did take photos of the quilts, but honestly they don't do them justice. I wish they had more room to display them, because most of them were folded up.
But I couldn't get over this one.
Look how cute! This tree is only like 5" tall and is only one small section of a whole appliqued quilt. But I just found it so charming with it's little birds...
