NC State Fair

Bonsai trees

This giant bug was made of garden tools such as hoses

Michael found a one-legged praying mantis

Checking out this handy tool

I like how the ice cream freezers are powered

Where we got some really good corn

I liked this old church and the big trees

Mama pig is plum wore out with all those young'uns

Can't get much better than this for me!

I've always wanted a bonsai tree. :-)

Susanne said...

I know! Aren't they so cute?

Sarah said...

It looks so much fun, I would love to be there!

Susanne said...

Sarah, it's very agricultural for sure. I really had a wonderful time with my dad, sister and Michael. :)

Lat said...

Very nice pics! Glad you had a wonderful time! :)And Micheal looks very cute!

Do you know that piglets stick to one tit all the time? They know which tit is there's and don't share it with anyone! :) I derived this info from a documentary I saw on a German pig farm.

Susanne said...

Lat, how interesting! Well, the sign says pigs are known for being very intelligent. I guess they don't want to drink after one of their siblings! :-D Thanks for sharing that tidbit! I enjoyed it a lot!! :D

Wafa' said...

you had a lot of fun there huh? :)

Susanne said...

Yes! :D

Carmen said...

Looks like a great time, Susie!

That bug is very cool looking. I can't believe how big and grown up Michael is looking. He's starting to lose just a bit of his baby face.

What was in the sky above the church? Was that a balloon of some sort?

I missed going to the fair this year. Like Joni said (at SAM?), ours tend to be at the end of summer and not in fall.

Susanne said...

Carmen, thanks! Yeah, it's some sort of balloon. I can't remember what it was advertising or saying now though.

I appreciate your comment!
