Day at the County Fair...

Last week we spent an afternoon, about 5 hours to be exact, at our local county fair. A special highlight this year was getting to enjoy it with our grandson, Mr. O. His mom and dad were very preoccupied that day with another big project!

Here he and Naomi are maneuvering  a tractor through a hay bale maze. The barns and machinery were the big highlights for Mr. O. Forget the merry-go-round, just find him a tractor to sit on!

First order of the day was to check on Naomi's fair entry, a photograph she had entered. A first place ribbon!

Good job, Naomi!

Every year at the fair Lucas watches the riders on the mechanical bull... and thinks about doing it. This year he decided to be a rider!

Ride 'em cowboy!
Everybody enjoyed their ice cream!
Mr. O is a heavy equipment guy; he can tell you if it's a front end loader or a backhoe or a compactor. Grandma has a thing or two to learn.

The petting zoo!
Learning to milk!
A ride with Aunt Naomi!
Hanging out with Grandpa!
Watching the big kids on the Ferris Wheel!

Experiencing Cotton Candy! (This was with permission from his mom and dad!)

All in all... a great day!
