John C. Fremont Days

This weekend my town's annual celebration. I've been attending this event since I was little. It takes place in the town park. There are food vendors, crafts, games, etc. Since it was Steven's first time, we made sure to do it right

One of this year's main events was the attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records largest open face sandwich. Thanks to 1,500 pounds of Spam, we were successful. The sandwich weighed over 1,600 pounds and was baked in a converted semi-truck trailer. We quickly fled as they started passing out samples. What you see in the picture is the layer of pickles covering the sandwich.

After stops at the car and home shows, we were off to the town rodeo. A first for Steven. Here's a picture of an unsuccessful attempt by a cowboy to ride a bull.

The last picture is of my new desk! I found it at the Estate Dispersal Store and just had to have it. It was also 50% off which totally helped. It's called a "piano desk" because the lid comes down like a piano. It will fit my laptop perfectly. 


  1. Can we go to the estate sale place?!?!?!

  2. It's only open once a month. The second weekend of the month. Cross your fingers you're in Fremont then. Our next one will be in Oct.
