Hi-Ho; It's Off to the Fair!

The County Fair, in all its glory and rich tradition has come and gone!
Last year our church family was responsible for a food booth and we worked long and hard in the searing Nebraska heat to serve up home made offerings. We were glad the Methodists had that responsibility this year.
We had a very special treat at this year's fair. No, it was not the spectacular parade or the wonderful array of needlework, cake decorations or even the autobiographies of the school kids.

Our special treat was watching our son and daughter in law introduce our grandson to the cows, sheep, goats, chickens, and horses. He even watched a bit of rodeo action. However, he was far more intrigued by the grandstand steps. (Remember that Jacob is 16 months old; this accounts for his interest level.)
But the piece d' resistance was DADDY taking Jacob on his first Merry Go Round ride. At first Jacob was more concerned with where Mommy was standing but by the time the ride ended Jacob was "into" it. It made for great photos for the album...
Having family close by and sharing those wonderful firsts is good mental health for us all. Our hearts will remember these precious times and send the brain the treasured images that encompass love, caring and concern. The richness of these warm relationships will serve us all well in our quest for good health.
