County Fair

Amids the scorching temperatures and the high humidity we decided to go to the smelliest place we could think of.... the Franklin County Fair. I had never been to such a small country fair. I heard the saying but the fairs I have experienced were more like amusement parks. But there is something to say about going to a small country fair.

First we stopped by the cows. Ahh....isn't she beautiful? You are luck you can not smell her. The stench that came from 3 barns of cows on such a days as I described...YUCK!

We next did not leave the smelly animals but went into a petting part. There were goats.

Evan is an animal lover to a fault. Sadly animals just don't love him. And all he ever wants to do is just touch them and hug them but they always run just as these chicks did.

So hot! So we had ice cream after a antibacterial hand bath.

As Evan loves animals Gregory loves skid loaders. He is always asking for one. So you can imagine how happy he was to sit here.

Not only was this the first year we went but it was the first year any of us entered something in to it. Yup Gregory entered a coloring and won Honorable Mention! I was so proud to see his coloring hanging up.

But that soon changed as he rode the car ride over and over and over and over. We could not pull him off of it.

Gregory even went on the kiddy roller coaster over and over and over and okay I pulled him off. I was so hot tired and wanting to smell a candle not a cow anymore!

That last picture is SO adorable! Two little brothers, holding hands--I love it! That's definitely one to frame.

Sounds like you guys had a good (and smelly!) time.

What a fun, smelly little day! Your little ones are so cute! That pic of them holding hands walking away is great! I agree -- you should frame it.

By the way, what airport am I sending Cora to? LOL
