For the Love of Summer







Just a little slice of my Saturday... an afternoon at the fair followed by an evening with friends at a birthday BBQ. I can't believe it's already August, this summer is going by way too fast!

Is that the Santa Rosa County Fair? Oh I love that place. I used to go with my mom ever year when I was little. They used (or maybe still do) give out free Clover vanilla ice cream cones. Oh so many memories. I think my favorite exhibit was the one with all of the plants and a river running through it.

More importantly...your post is such a wonderful collage of the last days of summer. I love the lanterns!

aaawww! what cute photobooth pics! happy last days of summer. Also your package is going out tomorrow ;) it is of a rather relevant theme.
Many hugs and strawberries

Missa said...

Thanks ladies!

Marcine: you are too sweet :)

Natalie: Yes! It is indeed the Sonoma County Fair in Santa Rosa. I went every year as a kid too. Oh and they do still give out the free Clover ice cream cones! This year the Hall of Flowers exhibit is a "Land Before Time" theme with lots of prehistoric props and cool carniverous and tropical plants.

Milla: Yay! Can't wait, package excitement ensues!
