As promised, I’ve brought you a few photos from the Portage County Randolph Fair. Next year I might go on my own during the week so I can spend more time looking at and photographing the animals. I’m not sure which are my favorites. It’s a toss up between the cows and the goats.

It was another lovely weekend filled with family and fun. The house is quiet now, something the cats are appreciating. Both are napping and will likely sleep for the next 24 hours. They tend to be jumpy when little girls and dogs come to visit, and get very little sleep. It’s nice to see them settled down again.
