Ahhh, the fair! It may not measure up to the movie when it comes to musical numbers and mincemeat pie, but the Wisconsin State Fair has its fair share of charm. I'd been looking forward to going for weeks, because my sweet old friend Kristin won the crown for Alice in Dairyland and I was excited to see her (and her tiara) in action. She got to meet Ralph for the first time in the pig barn, of all places, and we had the chance to quickly chat and hug before she was whisked away to see to her royal Wisconsin duties. Then it was time for us to fulfill our own summer fair duties of observing farm animals (the horsies were Ralphie's favorite,) standing in front of giant piggy banks, devouring cream puffs the size of our face, and walking until our feet were good and tired. Summer, you're so cute at the fair.
