My mom and I couldn't stop comparing it to the movie Sweet Home Alabama. I don't consider myself a country hick, but I tell ya, walking around this fair made me think twice about it. Because I LOVED it so much! It showed me that we're influenced by things we don't even realize. And I also made note that a small town fair is quite the romantic setting...might show up in a future WIP. ;)
The fair is held every year to help support our town's volunteer fire department. A number of tree carvers throughout the Midwest were there changing tree stumps into works of art.
We park in a cornfield.
The band playing that night was a country band called Chasin' Mason. They're all the rage in Wisconsin. Probably because they're really quite good and a great looking group of guys. Their harmonies are perfect and they interact with the crowd flawlessly. Everyone had a great time.
You should have seen the pyramid of cans they had by the end of the night...
We reminisced since I played on this field for ten years, my dad as our coach. (I never hit one over the fence though...)
And of course I saw about twenty people I hadn't seen for ten years which was wonderful. Just makes you realize how great of an impact every decision you make and person you touch has on your life as well as there's. It's wonderful, isn't it? :)
