10:30 -We arrive at the fair and make our first stop…tiny tim’s donuts and then a coffee from the tim horton’s truck. See those little, still warm donuts on their little conveyor belt, heading towards fulfilling their donut destiny. Apple cinnamon and a double double.

11:25 -Milking a plastic cow -they don’t move around so much, or mind all the tiny hands pulling on them 😉

4:25 -Heading home, tired and happy after a great day at the fair.

Some days, life really is a party. 😉
