The Big E Fair
We spent all day Monday at the Big E Fair in W. Springfield, MA (http://www.thebige.com/). We had a wonderful time. At the end of the day we were thankful we got a room instead of making the trip back home because boy was it a lot of walking and we barely sat down. It's about an hour and a half drive from our home but it wasn't a trip we would have been up for last night. I did have one big disappointment yesterday. A few weeks ago I received an email from House Mouse rubber stamp Co. stating come visit them at the Big E they will have a booth. We searched and searched and finally we found them but NO rubber stamps they had pre-max produced bookmarks, cards, calenders, and keychains with their images on them but NO stamps. On the bright side in another booth was a stamp Lady (Sarasota Stamps) she's from FL. I made 2 trips to her booth (3 stamps, 6 bottle of stickles, and 13 bottles of embossing powder).
Any how this cute little goat loved to have his picture taken. He stood right there like to say "I'm posing take my picture".
This was in the 4H booth I believe. That pumpkin the the far back is huge. It weighed 908 Lbs. that is the Big E's largest pumpkin to ever be entered.
Indiana Jones is made out of Legos. Jeff and I were taking turns taking our picture when the man running the booth came over and offered to take our picture together, which I thought was very nice.
This is the entrance into the midway!
This Donkey is smart. I was standing there watching him and he kept banging his head on the food container to say Hey jackass stop staring at me and feed me.
I did have one other disappointment while at the fair. For a good portion of the day my camera did not work, I dropped it. Finally, Jeff got tired of me crying about my camera that we sat down and he played with it and he couldn't get it to work. So then he took the memory card and batteries out and shook it put everything back in and it worked fine and still is working! So Thank you Jeffrey!
