Happy Birthday, USA



Our flag proudly flies
holding men and women in

its bold stars and stripes
Colors in the sky
together we “ooh” and “ahhh”
Independence Day

Wishing you all who celebrate a fun and safe Fourth of July!
Each year we go to our county fair, which is our plan for today.
And each year it’s the same, nothing changes,
yet the experience is still fun as we view the exhibits, the animals,
ride the big Ferris Wheel, take in the great music, enjoy some wine and beer
and of course, enjoy the fair food…my faves are gyros and root beer floats. 🙂

So have a Happy time and a Wonderful Weekend!
Sharing Love and Hugs, Lauren

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! 🙂

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

LAGOON AND PAVILIONThis is the lagoon looking to the Pavilion,
where the music groups perform.

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


I hope you enjoyed this “ride!”
