No summer is complete without a trip to a county fair. These annual gatherings are an American tradition; the perfect mixture of greasy foods on sticks, barnyard animals, rigged games, and creepy people operating rickety old rides. After hearing that our friend Bill was hosting a logging-sports competition, my sister and I headed out to Whidbey Island to check the sights and sounds at the 2009 Island County Fair.

The guy who carved that eagle was the same guy featured in the Pemco Insurance commercial as the “Roadside Woodcarver Guy.” He was good.
This is what it is all about.
These goats had some really life-like bleats. Kinda like this.
There is so much stuff on that wall that I want.
Test your luck.
That Sponge-Bob will haunt your dreams.
That looks safe, kinda.
