To the fair!


Saturday night we went to the county fair to:

- model in the fashion show (Kendall)
- see the animals (Grandpa)
- ride the rides (the cousins & the boys)
- eat an elephant ear (me)
- look at all the art (Grandma)
- see the quilts entered (friend Sharon)
- be dragged around looking at way too many exhibits until his brain exploded (Russ)
- and watch Kendall and see how she did on her projects (all of us)

All of the above was accomplished, making for a very successful evening.

(Unless you ask Russ, of course.)

Kendall's watercolor won reserve grand champion and is going on to the state fair next weekend!

Her acrylic painting of fancy dresses was picked for a "special award" and her poem won reserve champion.

Modelling the dress she made in the fashion show.

Kendall's fan club: (back row) me, Blake, Russ, Grandpa, Grandma, friends Tracy and Danielle. 
(Front row) cousin Lizzy, Kendall, cousin Debbie, and Cooper.

And our friend Sharon.

So proud of our girl!

                                                                         Lots of animals to see!

Sadly, there is no picture of the magnificent elephant ear as it was consumed too quickly.

Oh, I love the fair!
