So in this economy, we're lucky to be able to pull this off at all, and it was only one weekend...but we're pretty happy with the state going ahead with it, however humble it was.
The 'Fine Arts' section yielded some fun stuff, including a chicken cake!
And hey, it got First Place and Best In Show!
I really liked this pencil sketch, it reminded me of my horse.
And then...then...there was this.
Moving along to the barns and the chicken section! Of course.
We got a kick out of the cage tags. Pullets, OK...
...and let's not pretend.
After sweating it out at the fair for a few hours and watching the kid make herself sick on the rides, we headed home, where we were treated to yet another glorious sunset.
