Day 23 minifair!!!

This was a very BUSY day, I know I have said this a lot, but today was seriously all work!  We began our day on a very strict schedule, it was so strict in fact that we all agreed yesterday to sing just one song this morning.  We sang the "Copper Coffee Pot" song... to set the pace for the day.  There were homesteaders all over the place, finishing booths, setting up signs, making prizes, conducting experiments and setting up a peep wedding.  Fortunately we were joined by Mr.Clark once again today.  Having an extra adult sure was a big help!

We did working snacks and a working lunch, all homesteaders decided to forgo recess to make sure we were able to get everything done.  When I said we were working hard, I was not kidding!

Once we felt we had gotten everything adequately set up for the fair and the wedding, all homesteaders and commissioners got dressed up for the occasion.  There were many, many bridesmaids and many fake flowers.  The ceremony was beautiful, as was the bride.  It seemed like Bob Marley might not go through with it, but in the end her took Violet as his "lawful, wedded wife".  The bride and groom put together a brief reception, complete with four cakes!  Three cakes came from peeps, Mr. Clark also brought a cake to the wedding since he had one just hanging around! Wedding gifts were exchanged.  Then back to business!  It was mini fair time!

The mini fair was a HUGE success for something so small.  Among the rides and exhibits were:  a pirate ship ride, a pony ride, a ferris wheel, a brain scrambler, a circus tent, a swing ride, a water slide, a rocket ship ride, a trebuchet,  a zip line, a poker table, ring toss, art booths, fortune telling, a box Mr.Peep T ring, a jousting ring, and many, many mini treats and refreshments!  Much fun was had by all and a lot of visitors came to see what we've been up to for the past five weeks.  My favorite part of the mini fair was the insta peep table.  All people who came to the fair made peeps to come and play.  It was some much fun for those of us who have been living in Petiteborough to meet so many new peeps!
