Last weekend, DH and I took the Bachsters to the Ohio State Fair. It's been years since we visited the fair - last time was way, way before our first Bachster was even born. So it was a lot of fun to go back and try to remember some of the things that we saw the first time. One thing remains constant: the fair is so huge that it would be very hard to do it all in one day.
A gigantic carved squash:
We didn't get to see the Civil War encampment. We didn't get to see the knitting exhibition. We didn't get to see the pig race. We didn't get to see the butter sculptures. But we did have a lot of fun and the Bachsters got to ride as many rides as they had energy for. And there was lots of cotton candy, slushies and funnel cakes. After about 4 hours, we were all pretty beat. And that's when you have to come to terms with the fact that you just can't see it all in one day.
There will always be butter sculptures next year!
