County Fair

The County Fair was June 1 & 2.  It ended up being such a nice weekend for it.  Friday night was rainy and cool, but Saturday was perfect.  It was a beautiful day.  I didn't spend a lot of time at the fair though.  I know there are a lot of people who can take their kids anywhere and it doesn't phase them.  I admire them, but I'm not one of them.  It is just to miserable for both of us when I take her places like that.  I think it's also easier on Jay for us when we aren't around because he doesn't have time to help me chase her and I think it makes him feel bad. 

So....we waited until right before the Hereford show started before we got out of the car.  Again, I was thankful for the cooler weather because Camryn would fall asleep in the car on the way to and from the fair.  It was cool enough that we could sit in the car until we needed to be someplace which gave her a chance to nap a little.  When we were walking up to the show Camryn could see all of the "bulls" and she went crazy.  She kept pointing and saying bull over and over.  She had to get out of her stroller so she could see them better.  That's where the day started getting miserable....she wanted to be right at the cattle's feet.  I'd pick her up and move her and she'd turn into a bawling screaming mess.  As soon as I put her down she was right back by the cattle's legs.  We did that over and over and over. 

From what I could tell, when I wasn't hauling Camryn to a safe distance away from the cattle, Cade did a good job.  I think he was the 2nd youngest kid in the Hereford Show.

I am impressed that Cade can handle that animal! WOW. And Sweet C, bless her for her love of them. That's just awesome. E has been fascinated with udders for quite some time. :)
