A Date With Peeps
We went to the County Fair in cute little Rockford, where she had a bunch of her photos entered in the photography competition, and she also entered my Harry Potter Illusion Scarf in the knitting category. Pia earned a blue ribbon and a bunch of 2nd and 3rd places (though I thought she should have gotten grand prize for all of her pix). Poor Harry Potter was all crumpled in a pile, where it pretty much looked like the knitting project from a preschooler. I did get a red ribbon. :-(
We wandered around the fair (which takes about 5 minutes -- 10 minutes if you visit the museum), then I made her stop at this estate sale on the way back into town. She was creeped out by the mannequin they had out front, but good sport Pia stopped anyway. We tried on old lady hats, which was lots of fun, then headed over to Paradise Fibers so I could spend the gift certificate they gave me for working in their booth at the 'big' fair. She got yarn and a pattern to knit a baby blanket for her friend (one of THREE, she just found out she's having triplets!) and I got this cute kit for "Accordion Mittens":
We ended up at FroYo, where we had yummy frozen yogurt with toppings. She thinks my topping choice was weird: strawberries and Butterfinger crumbs. I liked it.
Thanks P, for an awesome day out with my oldest daughter!
