Swallowtail Butterflies in Ridgefield

Yep, I gained weight from all that Fair Food

I promised I would share how much weight I gained with all the ridiculous eating I did during the Fair. I got on the scale the morning of Opening Day (August 7) and again at the same time of the morning after the Fair ended (August 17). I have tracked both my weight and my […]

The Final Fair Food Feast Parade!

Well, that’s that.  The end of my 10 days of gluttony.  No more deep fried anything, no more chips, no more mayonnaise, no more carbonated sugar day after day.  It was great fun but I gotta be honest, I have been craving a salad for three days. So here is the very last Fair Food […]

Next year’s Fair has a new Court!

It has been a long, exciting, hair-sprayed day.  Six young teen women have spent the day vying to be on the 2016 Clark County Fair Court.  They have given speeches, done a few modeling turns on the runway, answered impromptu questions, and shown off their horsemanship skills in the horse arena. I followed them all […]

Has the Fair inspired your kid to join 4-H?

Fair Food Feast Parade ~ Day 9

Somehow my body knows the party is almost over.  Boo!  I can tell my appetite is slowing down and I’m not pleased.  I should have added an ear of corn or a corn dog or something on a stick today. Instead, this is all we’ve got.  So sad.             Toni WoodardI […]
