My favorite parts of the fair were the agricultural displays. The strange vegetables, the oversized cabbage, the bottles of flowers and jars of honey.
Gorgeous quilts hanging from the ceiling. That's Pierce, wearing a paper conductor hat, up on his father's shoulders underneath all the quilts.
Check out the amazing cakes! Seriously way to beautiful to eat.
I also loved going through all the animal barns.
Here, some 4-H teens were showing their cattle. They had such pride over their animals. We watched them in the back grooming, fixing every stray hair and shining up coats.
And they should be proud.
These were the most gentle, well-mannered cattle I have ever laid eyes on.
This goat on the other hand? He's a sly one. Reaching through the bars to steal someone's Mountain Dew. He had us laughing.
Okay, so maybe it was worth the drive. Even though we were stuck in traffic for an hour, during which Cort had 11 meltdowns. Apparently, he isn't a big fan of day trips.
