adventures in weekending: we’re going to the country, we’re going to the fair

It’s become something of a tradition to visit the Middlesex County Fair every year. So when I heard my parents were taking my nephew, Mason, of course, me and Bob had to tag along. I couldn’t miss out on cute farm animals, junky food, carnival games and the infectious, innocent energy of Mase.

Little Bo Peep and her little animal friends.

The plumpest blackberries I’ve seen all season. And the juiciest I’ve tasted.

A gentle wolf getting a tummy rub from his trainer.  And loving every second of it.

I’d love to snuggle with these cuddlies.

My favorite t-shirt. I only wish I would have bought it.

Nothing says a fair like candy apples, cotton candy, funnel cake and snow cones.

Bob won this cool ukulele…

While I paid $5 to play a game and win a box of Swedish Fish.  Hmmm…

There are still a few more things I’d like to check off my summer bucket list, but getting to cross this one out felt good. And it gets me pumped to cram in more fun summer activities. I don’t care if fall is just around the corner! I am determined to squeeze every last drop out of my favorite season.  Embracing and savoring the moments are key.
