A Day at the Fair

It is the Weld County Fair time... and this year we all entered a few things to test our luck!!
We spent a day  ( evening) perusing the fair, and seeing all sorts of great things!!


These are in no particular order - I just took pics with my phone, and some of them were okay. 


This is one of my quilts - Denise and I collaborated on it and we got Judges Choice.

I decided to try my hand at photography - this is a landscape Black and white...

This one went in the Misc. Category. I found this really cool blue frame and thought it looked good with the water ;-)

Wrangler Man entered a bunch of veges, This one won the largest Zuchini. Me, I kill plants.

My boy and his dog - in the portrait category. Boy was that a cool category. I should have taken pics of the other pics - amazing what people can do!!! ( We took 5th place)

Little bit entered his quilt. He entered in the open class judging, rather that thru 4H. He didn't want to do a record book, and I sort of thought that was smart - since he had 2 record books to do already.  he won the blue and purple ribbon below.


We checked out a ton of animals - this chicken - totally made me laugh, and he talked, and he followed you, and he was hilarious!!1

Middle bit entered his quilt through 4H, he was braver, and did a wonderful record book. Even had to keep track of all of his expenses. Shew - we don't want that to fall into the wrong hands ( dads!!)

So - umm, apparently there is a correct way to shoot thru an iphone? Wrangler Mans Spaghetti Squash.  We LOVE these - they are so yummy!!!

Lambs with an identity crisis ;-)   All these lambs get washed and then they put these blankets on them to keep them clean. They were fun - bright colors, camo colors and these ;-)

Someone spent a lot of time making this Vege Octopus . We LOVED it!! Congrats to whoever made it!!

We moved on to the pig barn. Little bit really wants to raise a pig for fair next year, so we had to go check them out...They get a little large...

And Lazy.....

Oh - here is another of my photos - 4th place for the puppy ;-)

Check out these scarecrows - are they not cool? again - not by us - but so fun to see.



It was pretty fun to go visit. There were a lot of wonderful quilts, and 4H displays and Cakes... yum ! The cakes and the decoration was so adorable. If you all have a chance - get to your fair!!

Good job. I went to our local fair this year for the first time. (We are new here.) There was no home show at all! Horrifying.
