This weekend happens to be Labor Day, which is always both bittersweet and fun.  Bittersweet since it is the “official” end of summer, and when I was a kid, it meant that school was back for real (although we did start the week before), and fun because it contains the event of the year, as far as I was concerned, at least for the first 18 years of my life.

Every Labor Day weekend (and now it’s Fri-Mon), the Woodstock Fair is the place to be.  Growing up in a small town, the fair was our claim to fame.  It’s your typical fair, with tons of terrible for you food, a midway (complete with Carnies), animals, tractor pulls, go karts, airbrushed tshirts (which I always claim I am going to buy, but never do).

I think I have missed it only a few times, last year was one that stands out, but we had houseguests, so I guess I can forvive them.  This weekend we’ll be heading to my parents house, and working their church’s chicken bbq on Sunday.  Not only do we volunteer for a few hours, but by doing so we get free admission and free parking!  My dad happens to pretty much run the chicken bbq at this point, and I have volunteered for many, many years, and then dragged my husband along not too long after we started dating.

I’m looking forward to beautiful weather, lots of fun (I drag him on rides after we’re done working), tons of food, and getting away for a bit!

What are your plans for this “last” summer weekend?
