Ham Days

Sunday we took BooBoo to Lebanon Kentucky to attend the annual celebration of pork, Ham Days.  Irish Woman was feeling better, so she decided to tag along. 

After a pleasant drive down two lane country roads, we got there at about 11 AM.  The line for the country ham and egg breakfast went around the block, and it was worth it.  Boo and I tucked in and ate like pigs, and Irish Woman nibbled at hers and got a to-go box. 

We then had a walk around to all of the crafts booths.  Since it was about 20 degrees cooler in Lebanon than it was in Louisville, we bought a small quilt for Boo to wrap around himself in the stroller.   There were of course the obligatory University of Kentucky memorabilia vendors. These people are ate up.  One had a "Last Supper" with Adolf Rupp as Jesus and all of the UK basketball greats as the apostles.  And yes, before you ask, Gillespie was Judas.

The pony rides and all that had happened on Saturday, so we just took boo to the midway area and let him ride the carousel and a merry go round a couple of times.  After that, both he and Irish Woman were about done physically, so we made our way back to the car and had a nice leisurely ride home.

On our way back to the car, we passed by the local Church of Christ, which was having an outdoor Sunday service.  Out of respect, I crossed the street so as to not disturb them.  Boo took that opportunity to start melting down.  I leaned over and stage whispered "Stop it Damien", which caused the older lady who was sitting on a wall listening to the pastor to start laughing so hard I thought she might start speaking in tongues.

Overall, it was a great morning.  I love going to these fall festivals.
