2011 Fair

This week our annual county fair has been going on. It is a small fair in comparison to others I have seen on blogs, etc. The main reason we attended (because normally we feel it is a waste of month and Grace never wants to ride anything) was to see if Grace's drawing won a ribbon in the art contest. We were very excited to see that Grace won 2nd place in her age division.

Probably my favorite part of the fair is the Birds of Prey show. I love owls and they had 6 or 7 different kinds. They flew for us and we learned some interesting tidbits along the way.

Next favorite is always the petting zoo and you get to feed them too. Exotic animals up close.

I took lots of pictures but decided not to overflow this post with them. We also made a break through with Grace, she rode the scrambler and loved it. Matter of fact hubby and Grace went back tonight to ride all the could because it is family night and the tickets are reduced quite a bit. Unfortunately I do not like rides anymore, they give me a queasy stomach and I haven't felt well today on top of it.

Congrat on the ribbon. I hope you hubby feels ok at the end of the ride day w/ Grace. The scrambler of all things is really a big deal to overcome.
