A Fair Day in Summer

We never miss our county fair!
When the kids were little, the experience was magical,
viewing it through their eyes and excitement.
Now that they’re older, on their own, hubby and I get another date! πŸ™‚

BIRD ON FERRIS WHEEL If you look closely, you’ll see that birds
enjoy the Ferris wheel, too. πŸ™‚

where the music groups perform.

“Spinning rides invite
screaming amusement for all,
Proceed before meals”


I hope you enjoyed this “ride!”Β

    Lauren, I had to giggle when I read about a new opportunity for you and your hubby to ‘date’ … I think you two are about my fav romantic couple, hehehe. Love the Haiku at the end – a perfect touch! Sending love and hugs for a wonderful weekend, my friend! πŸ™‚ xoxox

    1. Now you have me giggling, Julie, and it’s funny, but true, when kids come into the picture, the parents have to make time for dates all over again! πŸ™‚ it’s so much easier now and nice to have more alone time. Thank you so much for your cute comment about us being your fave romantic couple. That’s really nice, my friend….Sending hugs for a happy weekend for you, too! xoxo β™₯

  3. Opportunities for more dates with hubby – you managed to keep the flame going πŸ™‚

    And yes, good advice that – rides before meals. Some things, you need to resist sharing πŸ™‚

    1. Our flame still shines brightly, Eric, and I hope it continues forever! πŸ™‚ I agree, there are some things we don’t need to share! Thanks for commenting and have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Mary, I’m happy to remind you of something fun to add to your list! We also usually submit poetry and photos, but were too busy this year and missed the deadlines. πŸ™‚ Have a good weekend!

I appreciate your thoughts!
