Thursday morning found us scrambling around trying to get to the Fair Grounds around 8am. We really didn’t need to be there till 8:30, but I really like a good parking spot, and the way the Fair Grounds are situated, good parking spots are gold, Internet, GOLD.
A golden parking spot was acquired, and in we went.
We got to the Art Building only to realize that the girl had scooped up the wrong exhibitors ticket.
Superman to the rescue.
Out she went to the front gate, while I set up our chairs.
About 2 minutes later, I went to stand with her at the font gate.
She was just a bit worried that Superman wouldn’t get her the right ticket on time.
Our conversations went a bit like this.
She: Mom, where IS he?
Me: Honey, it takes about 7 minutes to get here. You have only been waiting about 2.
He came valiantly to the rescue (5 minutes later) and we had an hour to spare.
How did we spend this hour, you ask???
We walked around the building for awhile looking at the 600+ photography entries.
I stared at her feet for awhile.
But the majority of the time, I spent in lens envy.
Oh…and someone placed.
