A night at the fair

Hey guys! Hope you all had fantastic weekends! We took our two day trip up to our favorite Wisconsin spot and it was just what we needed. Though it rained the second day, we were able to go to our favorite junior county fair at night, a highlight of ours. We love seeing the livestock, playing on the tractors, and apparently, picking up other people's winning prizes! Just kidding, although my dad had fun with this hammer he found on the ground!

This cow was so hungry he wanted to eat the streamers above him!

This duck won first prize. Have you ever heard of a duck in a fair? 
My camera died pretty early on, and being me, I forgot to bring the charger. So here's what you didn't see:

  • We swam. a lot. It was fantastic!
  • We watched a lot of the Olympics. I mean, if you're not watching should! And I want to be best friends with the USA Women's swim team!
  • We cooked delicious, fresh, burgers and made s'mores for dessert. 
  • We paid paid a visit to the people in the Amish country and picked up the most delicious donuts. Seriously, nothing tastes better. Have you ever had Amish made desserts? They are the best!
 It was perfect. Very low key and just what we all needed at this time of the summer. How were your weekends?
