Fun at the Fair

We spent a day at the fair that I grew up showing cattle (and all sorts of other things) at near the end of July. (I'm still catching up on summer posts!) It was so nice reminiscing a bit and watching Morgan, Blake and my nieces enjoying their time there.

We took pictures at the cut-out by the poultry barn.


Enjoyed seeing the MSU and fireman scarecrow projects.


Blake's favorite cake...and from the looks of the ribbon it was the judges' favorite too!


The kids were able to pet all sorts of the 4-H animals.


Plus they tried their hand at milking a cow.


After grabbing some lunch, it was time to play at the splash pad!


Someone was getting a little tuckered out...


...so it was time to rest and soak up the sun.


I love the towels! :-)


Our last stop was at the petting farm where the kids were able to hold butterflies. (I think this was Morgan's favorite part of the day!)


And hold a baby bunny.

We enjoyed the cuteness of some piglets...


...and ducklings....


...and even a turtle. :-)



The fun and excitement of the day wore the kiddos out. Morgan rarely falls asleep in the car and never in the middle of the afternoon, but she did that day...twice! (We had to switch vehicles at one point.) I was even tired, but it was one of the best days of our summer and I'm looking forward to going again next year! :-)

those towels are so freaking cute and I love they had a splash pond to play in. I think the butterflies would be my fav too!!

That cake is pretty amazing, and the splash pad looks like so much fun! We're going to a fun splash pad next weekend! LOVE those things!
I think it would be pretty neat to hold butterflies too! Very cool.
