[tweetmeme] We went down to the 165th annual Dutchess County Fair in Rhinebeck, NY.

I’ve been going to the fair my entire life and I’ve only missed 1 year.   (my best friend got married that weekend – she was from Dutchess County, she should have known better!!  LOL!!)  There are certain things I look forward to every year.  One of the major food vendors that I love were MIA this year, but my other favorite thing is the baby animals.  These babies certainly didn’t disappoint!!  There are 13 babies in the first video!!

What are your favorite things to do at fairs?

I hope everyone had a very Happy Easter.
Michael & I went down to my parents house for dinner after church.
Mom made ham and mashed potatoes.  There were green beans and a salad too, but who cares about that….  (veggies are yucky right?)

Happy Easter to all!

Besides spending time with loved ones Shane’s passions included computers, comic book heroes (his favorite was Spiderman), and pool. He was an avid golfer. He spent most of his high school days learning and playing golf which included a trip to the state championship. He was lucky enough to meet his golf hero, Jack Nicklaus this past year. Shane was fun loving, smart, hard working, thoughtful, out going, charming, and most of all courageous. Shane had a smile that touched and brightened anyone that knew him.
