For such a small town, it was a big fair with lots of people. There was a water dunk tank. That guy got dunked at least 3 times in just a few minutes.
A kiddie train rode around the street.
Piper got into the festivities too. She loves rock climbing and jumped at the chance to do it again. It was tougher for her this time because she was wearing ballet shoes** and they didn't have much grip on the bottom.
A spinning, flying teacup ride that made me want to puke just watching it.
A local knitting store, that I'd yet to visit, had a booth outside with plastic bins full of yarn on clearance. They were all $1 each because they were trying to make room for their fall yarns coming in.
I scored 5 skeins of the 80% cotton, 20% wool yarn that's made in Peru. Never heard of it before, but the tag says its normally $7.95 a skein, so I'd say its a good deal.
Pretty, eh? If I didn't have storage issues, I probably would have bought up an entire plastic bin. Man, the temptation was soooooo bad. They've got a knitting club on Tuesday nights too. Not sure if I've got the time to actually go, but its neat to know that its there.
I've been crocheting too. Just very very slowly, since I've mostly been sleeping on my rides to and from work. Its nothing exciting...just a placemat, but here's a sneak peek.
** Speaking of those shoes!!! I took her to buy a new pair of flats because she'd outgrown her old ones. None of the children's sizes fit anymore, so I knew we'd have to try adult sizes. I figured a 5 or 5 and a half would do it. Nope, not even close! My little...err...big girl fit into a 7 and a half WOMEN'S shoes! Good grief, we're going to be sharing shoes soon and she's only 9!!!
