There are not many episodes in the entire ten-season run of this show that I wished I hadn't watched, but this is definitely one of them. Normally, I love interaction between the Ingalls' and the Olesons but not in this case. Caroline and Harriet are both hoping to win ribbons for their cooking while Laura finds herself attracted to a carnival worker and a young chap who runs a hot air balloon riding stall tries to sweep Mary off her feet. On top of all this, young Carrie, who has been entrusted to Laura's safe keeping, is constantly wandering off.
I was totally bored by this one and it's not something I would say very often. Others may like it but I did not.
