Family Fun

Yesterday my entire family (parents, both sibs and their SOs, the niece and one of my local aunts and her husband and kids) and C. and I all went to the Topsfield Fair. Yes it was raining the whole time, and my niece was grumpy, but we actually managed to have a nice day of it. My mom had planned the expedition weeks ago and gotten tickets so rescheduling wasn't really an option. We ate ourselves full on fair food, including fried dough (of course) and maple sugar cotton candy, which is awesome. We dropped by Prospect Hill Forge's set-up and said hi. My niece was so enthralled by the smithing, that only the promise of going to pet some of the farm animals could lure her away from the forge, which is high praise from a two year old.
We bought things we did and didn't need and saw the nearly 1500Lb pumpkin that won the prize for largest this year. We have more local honey and I stared in wonder at the 60lb buckets of it that could be purchased (for only $198.00) and wondered who would actually use that much.
We also ran into [livejournal.com profile] learnedax and [livejournal.com profile] cat9 on our way out. All in all it was a great time, though probably would've been better if it had been a bit less soggy, though for once it was easy to get to and the parking lot wasn't full.
