Yes, they actually have a festival to celebrate corn over here. And it's really pretty fun! It's like this farm town carnival with some rides, lots of crafts and DE-licious corn! I actually took Gregory and Charla to it last year when Fred and Leora were in Tucson for his cousin Dave's wedding. It was SO fun going as a whole family this year!
When I saw how this picture turned out, it made me laugh SO hard! I just love how every person's expression is different. I LOVE having 4 kids!!
There was this sort of "encampment" on the edge of the fair where these hippie-types had dutch oven's going next to their raw-hide tents, selling wind chimes, dream catchers and homemade food. They all wore leather clothes they made themselves, like pseudo Indians. It was a little weird, but the kids liked the drum they had out front.
That corn was the absolute BEST I've ever eaten! Gregory scarfed down the watermelon before any of us had a chance.
The playground is brand new- pretty cool stuff! I wonder how it will weather the winter..?
Of course there was resistance when it was time to go. We hoped by doing the old "Bye Charla" and starting to walk toward the car that she would just follow us. Gregory got upset at us for leaving her and ran back to the playground to fetch her. When she wouldn't come willingly, he DRAGGED her. We didn't let him drag her the whole way- once we caught our breath from laughing, Fred scooped up our little screaming ball of fury and we headed home.
