Wilson County Fair



This Sunday, after a lazy morning and a breakfast of French Baked Eggs, Steve and I decided to hit the road and headed to the Wilson County Fair. I think I have gone to this every year that I have lived in Nashville and I always enjoy myself there. It is such a trip. Personally, I'm not a big fan of rides or crazy food, but this fair has so many animal competitions and farm demonstrations that keep me busy all day.

I know my outfit isn't super stylish. But I'm not the type of person to wear fashion over function. It was hot, sunny and I knew we would be walking around a lot. This meant throwing on a simple light cotton dress, flat walking shoes, lots of sunscreen and a huge hat. This ain't the best outfit, but it worked for the day.

We hit up the antique car show, the dairy goat competition, miniature donkey competition, rabbit and fowl barn, the reconstructed pioneer village, a hypnotist show and an amateur cat competition. If I knew about the cat thing before hand, you know I would have brought my boys along. Maybe next year I will have a certified blue ribbon kitty.

Now here is a photo dump........
This van is very inappropriate. There was a bed inside.

I like posing with things. There will be a lot of pictures of me posing with things. Like cement cows.

 If you live in Nashville, or within a few hours drive, I really recommend heading to the fair. There are tons of different events every day and it runs through August 25th.

    1. Go get one! Most of the chickens are for sale. Most are less than $20. Now that you have more space..... fill it with chickens!

  4. I'm a little envious of your encounter with a donkey! In my dream life, I'm a farmer [that doesn't have to do too much back-breaking work, of course] with a slew of chickens, goats and 2 miniature Sicilian donkeys that are the best of friends. Looks like y'all had such a fun day!

  5. That was a big old snake. I like little snakes, but that one kinda freaks me out. You're brave! And your hat is fabulous.
