Here’s a few pictures of our visit with my sister, Kristen, and our trip to the state fair.
Going to the Deerfield State Fair became an annual tradition in our family when I was growing up and it’s been neat to take my own children now. It was so much fun to go back with my sister this year. We had a lot of fun reminiscing. And of course you can’t beat fair food – buffalo burgers & sausage & apple cider donuts & homemade ice cream & ever so much more!
There are lots of pictures!
