Sandwich Fair 9/12/2010

Ron and I, along with Patty and Matt went to the Sandwich fair this past Sunday. Uncle Matt Matt has been telling Aidan about the Sandwich fair since he entered the world. Last year he even bought him his very own John Deere tractor. This year would have been Aidan's first visit, so we went for him...

We visited some of the 4-H animals, the roosters and the bunnies. We saw the freakishly big pumpkin. I think it weighed in at 438 pounds.
Of course we indulged in some fine fair food (Patty calls Sandwich Fair the glutton bowl. That's pretty accurate). If anyone from the neurosurg team at Children's is following you will remember "the bacon diet". How that made Aidan laugh! Well, hands down, my FAVORITE thing we sampled was deep fried bacon drizzled with chocolate. It was complete genius and I hope it made you smile buddy!

This year they had antique fire trucks. Interesting that they didn't have them at the fair in the past? Hmmm. Aidan must have let them know this would be an awesome addition...he loved fire trucks.

Uncle Matt-Matt and Ron stole a picture on one of the tractors. Matt tries to get one every year.

Lastly, we took a ride on the train that went around the fair...I'm sure that would have been Aidan's favorite part of the day. A boy and his trains...

We had a great time and I hope you did too, Aidan! I know you were with us, sweet boy.


  1. We visited the Sandwich Fair a few years ago; it was terrific! That pumpkin is just huge. I think of Aiden often; may the road ahead be easier and filled with the good memories.

  2. Ahhh...that post just made me smile and think of how much Aidan was loved. The girls and I talk about him often and show pictures of him to Blake. We miss him.....but he will always be remembered fondly in our home.

  3. I am glad you had a great time. :) There is just something about trains that makes everyone smile---from the little kids to the bid kids! Thinking of you!

  4. Looks like sooooo much fun! And of course Aidan was there! Who do you think was REALLY driving the train? :)
