As the ends of most summers are, this one is bittersweet. But maybe this was particularly so, because we really had so much fun. Our little guy is at an age now where we can take him to a lot the things we used to enjoy as kids. And one of my favorite ways to close out the summer is with a trip to the county fair – fried food, pig races, silly games and rides – of course my son loved it! I had to give myself small pat on the back for the footwear choice, too. Most practical people might think ankle boots to be a terrible footwear choice on an 80+ degree day, but if there’s anything my music festival-going days have taught me, it’s that mass amounts of people + grass = mud. These awesome little western boots served me well!
