Every year as the thermometer creeps up and the nights get a little shorter we have a wonderful event that our family fully loves….The County Fair. We are not a family of livestock or crops but we love the fair for the neighbors we will see, the hard work of our community members and our favorites the 4H and open class buildings.
Both kids are in 4H and this is a big deal getting all the projects put together and then going to the fair and judge them. Greta brought 8 projects to the fair. She came home with 8 blue ribbons, 2 grand champion ribbons and a honorable mention. I think that is pretty good for an 11 year old. Henry is in Cloverbuds and he brought with 4 projects and came home with 4 ribbons.
Chad and I entered open class which is always a fun thing to do and so different from year to year. Chad entered a welded candle holder and got a second place ribbon. I entered a variety of items and got a variety of ribbons from first to 3rd. Here is our 2014 fair experience in pictures….

A great time was had at the fair and not even two full days after the fair has been done we are already asking ourselves the question…WHAT SHOULD WE MAKE FOR NEXT YEAR?
