Do you have a Fair in your area? We have a local fair that I have been going to since I was a kid. I remember going with my parents, walking through the fairgrounds and thinking that my Dad took far too long looking at the animals and tractors, plus it seemed that he knew everyone there and would end up talking! Us kids were focused on getting to the rides!
Bob and I went to that same Fair on Friday night with Andrew and Heather. We started in the animal barns.
It was a fun way to spend an evening.
