Country Living Fair Road Trip

We had a absolutely fantastic time Friday at the Country Living Show! The Husband, The Second Kid and I went downstate for the day. It’s a two hour trip but so worth the time. If we didn’t have the dreaded garage sale to run on Saturday I would have gladly gone back!

It is clear: I’ve never grown up.

When I was a kid my Auntie used to take me and the cousins to the county fair. I remember sitting in the back of the station wagon for what seemed like hours, in truth it was only 20 minutes maybe. Over every hill I would strain my eyes looking for the top of the Ferris Wheel. Remember the sight of the Ferris Wheel over top of everything else?

Once that was in sight you were officially AT THE FAIR!

Seeing the truck that said Country Living Fair gave me those same butterflies in my stomach.

“Oh my Gosh ~We are here!!! Yay!!!!!”

The Country Living crew did an awesome job staging the show. Their posters were everywhere!

It was so cool to find the hashtag for the show posted in several places including the gate as we walked in. Made it so easy to share on our Instagram!

Behold: The Second Kid…. a rare species that is very rarely photographed. Typically the Second Kid is only found in it’s natural habitat. A habitat that includes WiFi and video editing tools. Move slowly and quietly as not to spook it!

The Dutchess County Fairgrounds are always beautifully kept.

The Father in Law lives down in that area so we’ve been here before. Grampa always upholds his end of the bargain by treating the grandkids with things like the county fair.

I can only imagine the hours that went into setting up some of these booths.

This booth gave the term “piled to the rafters” new meaning

My imagination is still spinning from the Country Living Fair. I have so many ideas for upcoming projects. Can’t wait to share them with you!

Check out the video from our road trip!

If you were at the fair shopping or showing there as a vendor please share photos with us on our Facebook! We would love to see!

Have a joyful day!
