As is typical, I attended the DuPage County Fair this year with my children and some of their frendz. Here’s a short photo essay on the overall riff of the place:
There were the same old (antique) tractors as always, expect this time there was at least on chick, hatching:
There was a man on stilts eyeballing the fair map:
The food photography and colors never fail to appeal:
Fudge the Horse had her first fair:
Fantasy Amusements thinks of everything for the whole family, including the baby changing station:
There is very little chance you will get a basketball into these hoops:
I couldn’t decide if this goat spooked me out or made me happy:
We took a look inside a log home built out of a redwood tree:
The chickens were in top shape:
The rides were top-notch, as usual (more on them later)

If you we looking for the registrations form for the Religious Education Program at St. John the Baptist Catholic Parish in Winfield, IL, for the upcoming 2013 – 2014 year, I’ve got you covered. You can view and download these forms here.
The forms are not available anywhere else online, and I just received them by email, so I thought I would share.
Otherwise, here’s a picture of a barn in Ohio:
We had a great 4th of July with the Copplers at Fort Royal Farm this year.
We bought a large amount of fireworks:
There were the requisite patriotic table coverings:
SL was pleased with the progress of Carol Ann’s memorial garden, set on the perfect spot near the ridge of the farm:
I got some badass stock photo shots of wheat fields:
Downtown Carey is cool, especially when viewed in this “mini” setting:
We were able to get over to the Basilica and National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation
And then we were off top Cedar Point!
Here’s a short video I put together to show what happened over Christian’s confirmation ceremony and party.
