We were both coming from different directions, and when we saw the THOUSANDS of cars being parked in the fields, we thought, gee, we'll never find these guys unless we text our exact location and then MAYBE, we'll find each other. So, we parked our car and hopped on the trolley..and who should we see, but Brian, Lori, Cate and Trevor on the trolley! What luck!
Off we went to see and do what the kids wanted to do...First, the chicken barn...The kids have some chickens of their own, and are hoping for some eggs soon, so they are interested in all things chicken. Now Sparky knows NOTHING about chickens, roosters, guineas or anything chicken, but we saw some COOL chickens/roosters/guineas, etc.
Sparky is REALLY interested in Nelson's Golden Glow chicken, which is a fund raiser chicken operation which has sold all over Michiana for YEARS, but she got that later.....
Fairs are cool...cool animals....This Percheron (?) or Clydesdale REALLY enjoyed getting hosed down from his handler. It was HOT at the fair today.
The grandkids had a ball.....They are up there somewhere on the ride!
The foods...deep fat fried everything...Oreos, candy bars, and lots more....Like deep fat fried butter. Frozen honey butter dipped in funnel cake batter, fried and served with powdered sugar, five rounded tablespoons for five bucks...Sound good?
Sparky was a good girl, she had one corn dog and a small piece of Nelson's chicken....Trevor was contemplating something, we're not sure. Maybe what to eat next? Maybe spaghetti ice cream? Frozen strands of frozen yogurt with strawberry sauce and grated white chocolate to resemble spaghetti, parmesan cheese and tomato sauce. No? How about jalapeño corn dogs or Fruity Pebbles corn dogs? Right here at the Elkhart County Fair....
Always great to see family and see our grandkids having fun....We'll see you later!
