I then went with the Tunnell's this morning to see the Fair Days Parade in Monroe. The parade route passed within three blocks of their house so we just walked. As it turned out, the primary reason Britton and Lucy love parades is the fact that so much candy is passed out. It wasn't quite the sugar overload of halloween, but I'm sure there was still a significant post parade sugar buzz. After the parade, I met with Mike Veatch to collect Madelynn and Abby, and Cassie Parrot in order to take them to the fair. It actually felt a little odd to just be going to the fair with grandkids as opposed to spending a significant chunk of time at one of the bee booths.
We went through most of the animal barns, watched a lumberjack show, and looked at every last booth that was selling cheap trinkets. Abby was determined to find something suitable to bring home for her little sister. Ultimately, she decided on saltwater taffy, a pretty safe choice in my opinion. We also sampled some fair food with "Purple Cows", fair scones, and curly fries. We also took a few of the necessary silly fair photos. I think the lumberjack show and the rabbits were the biggest hits with the girls.
