What do county fairs, outdoor movies, and road trips all have in common?
We took a trip to the county fair yesterday and had a great time watching all the aggies show their animals. We saw a pig named Charlotte and learned that some pigs like marshmallows.
We watched part of a horse grooming contest where the participants had 30 minutes to groom their horse without using soap. It looked like the horse was getting an all over mud mask.
Of course we had to ride the ferris wheel – it’s a fair classic. We saw a walking horse show, the pee-wee showmanship show, and a turkey show.
It was fun to watch tikes as young as two years old try to stay focused on keeping their pig in front of the judge.
Have you ever seen a girl turn a turkey half her size upside down?
There is always something going on at the fair. A naturalist was showing a snake.
The Green Mobile was busy educating on ways to recycle.
Down the hill the tractors and trucks were showing off their power.
For the weekend we’ll be setting up the outdoor movie screen again for a double feature. We might have to draw straws to see which movies we will watch for our double feature.
Today we are getting ready to take a road trip to Columbus, Ohio for a baseball tournament. I love taking the time on short little road trips to visit new places along the way. Our next road trip will be a little longer to Cable, Wisconsin by way of the little Swiss village of New Glarus.
Road trips, outdoor movies, and the county fair – which one do you like best?
Any road trips in your summer plans?
