Pink Saturday #9 at the mid way!


Pink October kit from 2Peas in a Bucket


Every year we attend the local country fair. I wrote about our trip here. While I was there I was sure to look for pink items to take a picture of. There was a lot of pink there. My favorite would have to be cotton candy (but I've already posted about that for a pink Saturday). My granddaughter Mackenzie is not quite three (next month) and we spent some time where the kiddie rides were. She is quite interested in the rides and went on several by herself. We ended our time at the fair by picking out a toy to buy. Mackenzie got a pony and Tim got a policeman set. Life is good...and on this day it was good and pink!

For more Pink Saturday blogs visit Beverly, our hostess, at How Sweet the Sound

take care,
Dawn

The State Fair in Wisconsin, was one of my FAVS!! Great pictures.

Thanks for the visit and comment and Yes, Dawn...I do think that the problems you're having are the same as what mine was...the people either have PLAYLIST or SITEMETER on their blogs...and something with BOTH of them is going on and screwing IE up!! UGH!!! Mine didn't open and that started just lastnight, too!

~Blessings,
Jan

Hi Dawn, Great job on the layout :) I wanted to tell you that last week I made the watermelon sherbet with my DD. Our grocery store didn't have raspberry or lime flavors! We hit another store and found TONS of flavors including watermelon. We used mini chocolate chips and it waw a HIT :) Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Diane@A Picture is Worth.... said...

sounds like a fun day, and I love your layout!

At first I wasn't sure I was on the right blog...it looks great!

I would like to try to do more with mine, but it is too hard to update the 3 columns. I lost all my bloglist last time, and still don't think I have it all back.
Happy Pink Sat.

Hi Dawn, I love your pink items from the fair. I love country fairs also, I live in TX, there's not really "country" fairs here in the suburbs of Dallas, but I grew up on the East Coast in MD and I used to always go to country fairs. Your site is cute!

I just love your scrapbook pages, Dawn. I have no clue as how to do that--did you take classes? What type of printer do you use?

Oh, I loved the pinkness in your photos---what a great time at the fair! dana
