It’s State Fair time in Alaska! Jason and I went to the fair on Sunday, after I had finished an engagement photo shoot (check out the Sneak Peak here). After such a miserably rainy month, Sunday was perfectly sunny and warm. I was able to wear a short-sleeve shirt and the sunglasses – again. Not a surprise that a million other people had found their way to the Fair too.
We had such a great afternoon – leisurely walking around, checking out all the farm animals, taking pictures and munching Fair goodies. Well, being a health nut it was a lot for me to eat just a few french fries – just to prove it again that I don’t like them. Oh, and I also tasted an elephant ear. And didn’t like it.
However, I wish the good ol’ country would be a bit bigger deal in Alaska. While the Fair is a great occasion for people to get together and have a great time, I still miss the giant State Fairs with millions of events in Washington State and Texas.
But nevertheless, we had a great time – pictures should tell it! Once again I was nearly speechless about the beautiful quilts at the fair. They always make me feel like an elementary school kid with my quilting projects…
