We went to the State Fair this year, the first time since I moved to MS.
We took my favorite 4-year-old, who made the day so very memorable with his excitement. He never complained or asked to be carried. On the way home he said, "We had a big day. We can go again."
Of course we stopped by the honey booth! We didn't enter anything this year, but this gave us a good idea of how it's done.
