country fair {for the locals}

The weather here has been gorgeous. 
Hello fall…goodbye yucky, hot summer.
Are you looking for something fall-ish to do this weekend?
Are you local {sorry far-away blog readers}?
Do you want to help bring a sweet little boy home to his forever family?
If so, check this out…
Our friends Ryan and Christy Vogt are in the process of adopting a sweet little boy from Russia. Their family and small group have put together this great fundraiser event to help raise money to cover adoption expenses. How fun!
Here are just a few things that will be going on at the Country Fair:
*face painting
*water balloon launch
*bounce house 
*carnival games and prizes
*hay bale maze
*hay rack ride
*petting zoo
*barrel train ride
*photo booth
*silent auction 
You can even come dressed and ready for family pictures. Andrea Siebert Photography will be there to take family pictures for just $25. What a great deal! All the proceeds will go to the Vogt’s adoption fund. For more information check out Andrea’s blog.
