|Welcome to "Bacon Nation"|
|Surprise! The sheep flocked to Sarah!|

After being out of the sun for a little while, we decided it was time to take advantage of the beautiful day. We watched the air show for a few minutes from the lawn behind the Farm Building, then headed for a nearby beer garden to grab a couple of pints and watch a bit more of it, although our view from there was considerably obstructed by the Bandshell. Still, it was wonderful to be sitting outside with a beer in the middle of this huge crowd, just enjoying the sun and the winding down of the summer, watching all the people go by. That beer, by the way, went down very, very quickly indeed. When we'd had our fill of sitting down, we walk back east toward the main midway, taking our time but with one very specific destination in mind: the new -- but nostalgia-inducing -- Sky Ride.

|A lovely cow mascot for Sarah|
And, oh yeah: we passed two more mascots on the way to the train. This might have been Sarah's Best. Day. Ever.
|It's a mascot festival!!|
