My older daughter and I went to our first fair of the season – our Warren County Fair in Lebanon, Ohio. The day was beautiful with bright, sunny skies and an 80 degree temperature.
I’ve exhibited many times in the past, but this year I left it all to my daughter who entered several needlework, jewelry and crocheted items. As always, she did well with 7 blue ribbons and 3 second place awards.
I looked at all of the displays in the large building that housed the needlework, quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking, crafts, etc., exhibits and then found a seat near the racetrack while my daughter went to visit all the animal barns.
I’ve loved harness horses for as long as I can remember and always feel a sense of contentment watching them on the track.
I was able to watch three exciting races, close enough to the track to hear the hoof beats, and we started back home, both of us happy with our first fair of the season.
