Fall Fair

Before I get into how the Fall Fair went I want to share photos of the biggest most gorgeous rainbow I have ever seen. The camera we have doesn't do justice to the magical appearance that was displayed for me the other day. There were two HUGE rainbows reaching up to the heavens, and one was showing off not just the ROY G BIV colorswe all know once, but twice! All on one rainbow! What a treat.

Now onto the fall fair. It was a nice relaxing drive up to the West Allis fair grounds. The day was dreary and rain droplets were falling lightly on our skin, but no harm done. Our first stop was their mini pumpkin patch were I thought it was necessary to take a picture of their best pumpkins compared to my greatest pumpkin. Sad to say the other pumpkins fell in dead last in the competition.

We were really excited to see the worlds largest piggy bank...well maybe not but I took a picture anyway for Sam's sake.
Now something that I was excited about was the camel rides. It's not everyday that you walk along and see a camel, I was entertained by this guy for at least 5 minutes. I wanted to ride the camel with Sam but the people running the show said only children between the ages of 1-10 were allowed to ride. DRATS! Didn't they know I was trying to get some good pictures? Geesh. Disappointed we moved on to the next stop. The petting zoo is where Sam was mesmerized by the baby goats, zebra, and lamas.
After the over stimulating surrounding, Samuel decided he was cranky and wanted to start on back home. Joel and I agreed so we packed up, bought some fall harvest Indian corn stalks, gourds, and mini pumpkins. HAPPY FALL!
