We survived our first county fair with kids in 4-H! It was a ton of fun, and we were all exhausted by the end of the weekend. We took the pigs to the fair and checked in Wednesday morning. Danika and her friend Gracie did a Favorite Foods Day project which they presented Wednesday morning. They did a great job and got purple ribbons – we were really proud of them!
The girls and I helped with food judging on Wednesday afternoon and we checked in pigs Wednesday evening and then hung out and camped until the pig show on Friday morning. The girls both did a great job showing their pigs, especially since it was a first for both of them. Jayde showed in Clover Kids, which meant she didn’t actually compete against anyone, but she did did very well. Danika ended up with 2 purple ribbons and 2 blue ribbons for her pigs, which was really good for her first year!
Both girls had friends that also showed pigs, so that made it extra fun!
Danika had a couple of friends spend the night with us Friday and Ashton got to have a sleepover at his cousins house. We spent quite a bit of time checking out the fair (mostly the kid barn petting the animals!) and the kids spent most of Saturday afternoon on the rides.
Sunday afternoon we did a family monster truck ride!
The girls and I rode through the parade on our church float, and then we spent a bit of time with friends and family. Ashton wouldn’t cooperate for a picture at all…silly kid!
We went out for pizza with some friends and then headed to load up projects and animals. We were happy to call it a weekend, but sad the fair is over! We’re already looking forward to next year!
