when all is fair
With just two hours until fair time... the rain began to fall. In buckets, it seemed. And as the puddles spread, kids heart began to break. Plan B seemed all but impossible... and our eyes focused hopefully on the radar. As the raindrops slowed their fall, we decided to brave those few last sprinkles. And it turned out just fine.
There is just something about wandering the county fair... hand in hand with the boy you love. The darkness alive with lights blinking a million colors. The air, sizzling with aromas, savory and oh-so-sweet. And somehow... it is that much better when your eyes are upon your kids spinning and swirling on by at dizzing speeds... and you catch the sound of their laughter as they whirl on by.
