Fair Play

In rural Midwest your county’s status is determined by one thing: the size of its county fair. It’s the hallmark of summer ‘round these parts, and this week it rolled into town. Now normally if I venture to a fair it’s only for the food (duh), but this year I had a more important reason. A good family friend participated in the queen contest, so a group of family and friends gathered to cheer her on. Spoiler alert: she won!

I was given the family camera to snap some pics of Ellie during the contest. I now like to think of myself as “Official Photographer to the Queen” ;).

A fair is not a fair without a lemon shake-up

You can bet that I stocked up on all the classic fair food. I'll only include this one so you don't know how much I actually consumed. 

 Pretty friends

The coronation, congrats Ellie!

They weren't even scared. It was a fun end to a perfect Midwestern summer night.
