County Fair


Two posts in one day? Yes, but you won't hear from me at all tomorrow. Olivia and I will be very busy tomorrow.

Tonight, Olivia went to her first county fair. She was wide eyed and taking it all in. We had to see the holsteins since Grandpa was a dairy farmer most of his life and Mommy grew up on that farm. Daddy's Grandpa was also a dairy farmer, so visiting the cows is a required part of a fair trip.

Olivia also saw the sheep, goats, rabbits and horses. She sat and gazed on as we watched the hogs being shown in the arena. We were there to see Olivia's great-grandpa be honored as he was inducted into the county's agricultural hall of fame. She was very patient and enjoyed all of the sights and sounds of the fair.



We fed her and changed her into her pajamas before heading for home since she would undoubtedly be asleep and ready for bed by the time we arrived at home. But just before we left the fairgrounds, Olivia did this.



Don't let the look on her face fool you...she was tired! But she really enjoyed the fair. More county fair photos are on her photo blog.

My hubby's family are dairy farmers too - but from WI. The county fair is always a treat! :)
