Finally Reached Common Ground

I have been wanting to go to the Common Ground Fair for years. But always hurdles were thrown up in my path – hurdles I deemed too high to overcome. But I’m happy to say that this year we took the leap, and it was well worth the effort. I loved it, and definitely plan to go back in the future without the kids.

The drive was one hour 45 minutes long each way, and the weather was iffy. We chose the worse of the two weekend weather days on purpose, in hopes that some of the crowds would stay away. (It seemed like they did.) We got a little damp before lunch, but the afternoon was dry.

There was so much to do and see and eat and buy – we couldn’t cover it all before we “lost” the kids. Or before we ran out of cash. Fun for all!

And now for the highlight of the day for the boys (seriously – we spent at least half-an-hour there)…………

I love Maine. I hate mosquitoes. I prefer the bottom half of a muffin to the top. Baseball yes. Boxing no. Oh, and I have 3 boys in middle school. This is my blog.
