If you follow my blog, and have the most recent Flickr photo stream pictures, you'll discover we went to our county fair today. I entered three photos into the open class amateur category, and came home with a 3rd place. Not bad for a first go! We wandered aimlessly with my parents through the poultry barn, the goat barn, the sheep barn, the swine barn, and the cattle barn. Caris pet a baby goat, a mule, and I think she got her little hands inside a sheep pen to touch their wool. Of course, the fair can't go on unless it's literally 95 degrees in the shade, and we were sweltering. Luckily, Caris is too young to understand that at 5pm, the carnival rides start. The day will come, however, when our little farm girl decrees she wants to ride the rides. Until then, we'll stick to animals and open class competitions.
And besides, I hate carnies. Very small hands. Smell of cabbage. ;)
