Each year at the end of September we round up the troops; my husband, kids, mom, mother-in-law, father-in-law, friends, and my cousins. We all head to the Durham Fair. This is a fair you don’t want to miss. We get to eat, shop, check out animals, tractor races, the kids go on rides, and there’s always great live entertainment. We always follow our same routine….First thing…FOOD! Everyone go grab their grub and meet under the tent.

What’s a fair without Apple Fritters

One of our apple orchards                                                                                               Huge flowers from all over

Our feet hurt, we’re stuffed to the hilt, our wallet is empty, and we’re all freezing since the temp dropped but I wouldn’t trade it or miss it. Plus I get to annoy everyone with the wooden bullfrog I bought. If you come to CT in September, check out our fairs!
