Field Trips

Water Work and Wonderful Library Fun!

Well the last few days I have been working with the girls on a few of the water experiments in the waseca biome study! Yesterday we talked about how water always flows down hill, and today we reviewed the water cycle! Since we did a lot of water cycle work this year, I sort of just did a review. Bunny really understands this, so I didn’t get into it too much more. Both girls enjoyed this work, and I think that the water flowing downhill will really be a great work to leave out! Pup really loves it, I just needed to wait for it to dry before I could let them work with it!

This tray has Model Magic clay in it that I made into a steep hill. I let it dry (mostly) and used it to demonstrate how water flows!

The water cycle was easily done with some ice in the pan that we melted and when it started to boil, we noticed how the water vapor was like the water that evaporated to form clouds. Then we put the bowl over the top. The vapor collected and made “rain”!

Here are some pictures that Bunny drew to show how the water cycle worked!

Another thing that we did today was that we finally made it to the large library! Let me tell you what, the children’s library there is almost like an amazing museum filled with books! Bunny and Pup loved it! I think we may have to stop by there more often!

We ended up with alot of fun and a we ended up with a lot of books! I love that in the children’s library there is not only a fictions sections full of picture books, but also a whole section of non fiction picture books as well! It is just perfect for finding great books to read for school work! I think I need to go with a list of my near future studies! 🙂 It was just a great place! Happy Schooling!

Lights of the Season!

Well as promised here are the pictures from our trip last night to see the lights that they put up at our zoo! It is the biggest light show in out city and it is beautiful!!!! Bunny and Pup went last year with Dad while I was shopping. This year I went too! It was something that we decided to do rather quickly since our zoo membership was ending and we wanted to see the lights before it really got cold! It was amazing!!!!!! We ate dinner at the zoo diner which is where the lions and bear lived years ago! The kids love to eat in the old cages! 🙂

Here we are at the zoo!

We are waiting for the food to come! Pup is posing for me! 😉

Bunny posed too! 

After that we went out to see the singing lights! This display is synchronized to Christmas music and Bunny wanted to dance! 🙂 Of course Pup joined her! After they danced a bit, we saw a ice sculpture and watched him make Santa out of a block of ice! It is so cool what they can do with ice!

When we got outside, Bunny was so excited she took the stroller from me since I was walking too slow!

Here is my dancer!

Pup couldn’t sit and just watch!

My hubbies was really interested in seeing the ice carving! It was really amazing!

I cant even draw that well, let alone crave something out of ice that looked that good!

Then we were off to see the biggest tree in the zoo!!!! It is covered with blue lights and just awesome to see! We walked through the lights for a while on our way to see Santa (and to warm Pup’s hands up)! Bunny has never wanted to really talk to Santa (she has always been a little shy) and Pup is still scared to death of him! 😉 However, Bunny decided that she wanted to talk to Santa, so we stood in line to see him! Pup joined us too and she went up and looked at him (from about 10 feet away!) Bunny actually told him what she wanted! 🙂 It was really sweet!

Pup and Dad!

Me and Bunny!

This is the big tree! I couldn’t get it all in the shot!

We were give these cardboard glasses that make lights look like snowflakes! They are too cool! Here is what I was able to get the camera “see”! Pretty cool, huh?

Here are the trains that are set up in the building where Santa is! It is a HUGE set up!

Here is the stage where Santa was sitting.  wasn’t able to take pictures of him because they want you to buy on! 🙂 Sorry about the blurry pictures. Going from the dark to light required me changing settings and I forgot to do it a few times!

Here is Bunny waiting to see Santa!

We followed this milestone moment up with a ride on the train and the carousal! Pup was excited to ride a zebra (it is her favorite animal) on the carousal! She loved it! Bunny rode the elephant (her favorite animals at the moment). After that we were able to get right on the train! Pup had been very concerned about the animals being able to get her while we were on the train because it goes out around the African animal exhibit! The only way she would get on it was being assured that the animals were in their homes! 🙂 So we got on and she LOVED it! She grinned the whole time and said it was her favorite (after riding a Zebra of course)!

Pup had to ride this Zebra! She LOVED it! She laughed the whole time! 🙂

Bunny loved her elephant too!

Me and Pup!

She loved the train too!

Daddy and Bunny! Bunny loved the train ride best! 🙂 It was really cool since we rode through a tunnel of lights! It felt so weird (cool weird)!

We had a really wonderful time together and it was a really special moment! I was reading an article the other day about how kids will really remember the good times you spend together! It was a good reminder and it is part of what got us out to the zoo! And it really was worth it! I love taking time for family! It was also a great little tie in with our Prophecy this week “The People who walked in darkness have seen a great Light” Isaiah 9:1. My hope is that this is something that will be a memory for the girls of time with mom and dad! What things do you do in your family to build memories and spend time together?

A day of Field Trips!

Today we went several places! We started the day with a great trip to our local fire station! It was great! Fire Fighter Jim showed the kids all sort of things and I think that it was really fun for the kids too! Here is a few pics of our trip {too see more about this trip stop by other blog HOPE in the Home}

After our fire station trip, I took the kids to the park. It was a beautiful fall day, so I packed a lunch before we left so we could head outside for a while! I took the kids {by a unanimous vote} to the big hill! I made the kids eat before we took a walk. Then we headed up the hill! The girls loved seeing the butterflies that were there, and they also found some milkweed silk! This of course prompted some fun “planting”! 😉

Lunch Time!

Up we go! This hill is so steep! Tadpole made it up on his own, but it was slow going!
{The other kids ran! Boy I wish I could do that too! ;)}





Here are the girls “planting” milkweed!

We also took some pods up to the top of the hill! They went so far in the wind! It was fun to watch them dance in the air! I sort of talked about how the seed travel, but they just want to see them fly!

After going up and down the hill a few times, they were pretty tired. So I pack us all up and we headed toward home. However, we past our local Pumpkin patch! I have wanted to get some of those small pumpkins so the girls could scrub them in the school room but I haven’t gotten to the pumpkin patch yet. So….we stopped! Bunny was SO excited, so were the other kiddos! I let them all pick a gourd and a pumpkin! It was a short trip, but they all thought that it was amazing! To make the trip even better Bug and Pup found a cat that loved attention! Pup has been in  love with cats ever since she held a few kittens this summer. This was further encouraged by a visit to Grandma and Grandpa’s where she was allowed to carry the cats around and they let her! So now she thinks that she can hold all cats. This cat was no exception and I had to talk to Pup about how we cant hold every cat we see! 🙂 I managed to tie out “h” is for Halloween theme in by talking about the pumpkin life cycle and about the parts of a pumpkin a bit. Then we read a story that talked about those thing too!
They all had to sit on a giant pumpkin! 🙂

Here is the kitty that wanted to play! The girl were following this poor cat everywhere! 🙂

Here is Pup’s picks

Here is Bunny’s picks

And here is Bug’s! She found some leaves too!
So I guess today had some fun planned learning, and some spur of the moment learning too! It was really busy, bu it was fun! Plus we all got out in the sunshine before the cold really hits! We could go outside without a coat today, but the cold is moving in tomorrow! I hope to do some more pumpkin work with the kids tomorrow and I “talk” with you all then! Happy Schooling!

The Circus is in Town!!!!!

Well today the circus was in town! I love the circus and I have wanted to take the girls for a while, so I splurged and bought tickets!!!! This was the really good circus and it only comes every so many years! It was amazing!The best circus I have ever been to! The girls thought it was great! They loved it all and I think that they may have even had some sensory overload! 😉 Here are some pictures of the circus!

We got there for the pre -show that allowed us to go down to meet some of the performers!
 It was great to get close.

We could dress up!

Dance with the dancers! Pup even tried to follow along! 🙂

Here are the girls with the souvenir cup that I bought for them! Bunny LOVED hers so much!
 It has a place of honor in her room! 🙂

Here is the begining of the show! It started with the national anthem of course!

This was the opening parade. Bunny loved how the elephants held each others tails! 🙂

Jugglers juggling fire!

Tightrope walkers! This was so cool!
 The two on the bikes had a bar on their shoulders that the girl in the chair is sitting on!

Here are the tigers!

The aerial performance is always my favorite! I love to watch the people twirling in the air!

Here are the elephants coming in for their part of the show!

Aren’t they awesome?!!!!

And the finale!!!
Both of the girls had so much fun and I think they will remember it for a long time! I know that I will!

I’m Back!!! ~ Our Vaction Fun!!!!

Well I have been MIA for a few days because we were on a mini vacation at Put-in-Bay, OH to celebrate my Hubby’s Birthday! I know that is is really end of the season and alot of things were really closed, but we still had fun! I had planned for everything being closed for the season, so it wasn’t much of a surprised. It was really weird, however watching everyone closing things up for the winter! It went from a party town (its a huge summer party spot) to a Hallmark style small town in one day! Again, it was amazingly strange to see!
To get to the Island, we of course we needed to get on a ferry! Bunny and Pup have a Caillou movie with an episode where Caiullo went on a ferry. This of course made the ferry trip a super exciting thing!  I cant tell you how excited!!!!! When we pulled the car onto the ferry, we got out and headed up to the  deck for the ride. Bunny was shaking she was so excited! I don’t think she could have sat still if she wanted to! 🙂 Pup was a little scared, but she loved it too! I think it was one of the highlights of the trip for the girls!

Here is dog headed out to “grandma’s”house! She was so excited to be in the car! 😉

On the road!!!!

Here is the ferry we got on!

On board.

Headed up to the deck.

Here is one of the pictures that I have of Bunny all excited!

The girls got a kick out of seeing our car below us!

Bunny also was super excited to see a real circle window!
 I’m not sure why she thought it was so cool, but she loved!

We are alomost there, get back in the car quick!
The Bed and Breakfast that we stayed in was really great! It was beautiful and really homey. I liked it alot. It was a great place to relax and the girls were able to have their own beds! Bunny was so excited to be sleeping with her sister. “Its just like olden times when the girls shared a room” were her thoughts on it! 😉

Here is our B&B

This is the sitting room

Here is a veiw from the sitting room of the bedrooms

Bunny on her bed

Pup on her bed!

Bunny wanted to make her bed up as soon as we got there!

My plan this week for school, since we were going to be out on the Island, was to talk about rocks. On South Bass Island there is a cave that you can tour and also some great touristy fun mining for gem stones! So I thought that our theme this week would be “R” is for rock. I found a great book that we can “row” our own way, so I brought it along! When we got to the Island on Sunday, we headed out to the caves right away (since they were only opened on weekends). Bunny was so excited!!! We got there about a half an hour until the tour of the cave started, so we bought a bag gem stone mining mix and took it out to the slues box area! Bunny and Pup were so excited about doing this! It was really great fun, and the mix was full of pretty gem stones! When we bought the mix, the workers also gave us a chart with the names and pictures of the different stones they could find! It was like a pre-made Montessori work with all the fun of a tourist activity!

Here is the “treasures” as Bunny called them!

Here is the girls “making” pennies in one of those penny squishing things!
Its their new collection!

The cave was small but great! It laid a really great foundation for when we read our book and talked about bedrock under the ground! Bunny really thought it was cool, and Pup scared me to death because she didn’t want to hold my hand and almost fell a million times! There are alot of really cool shaped rock in the cave and it was fun trying to see them!

The next day we realized that we needed to be a little creative in our activities, so with a few good tips from some locals, we were able to find a really great beach spot and nature walk area! It turned out to be super beautiful outside, so we went to the local grocery store, picked up some lunch stuff, and headed out for a picnic!!!!! We started by heading down the grassy path of the protected nature area, and as we went we found that there were paths down to different parts of the beach. These beaches aren’t the kind you sit on a build sandcastles, but they are perfect for rock hunting and exploring! We found lots of rocks and were able to use them to talk about the different kinds rocks that were shown in the book we were reading (sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous). We also collected some just because they were cool! After the beach we continued on and found a rocky strip of land that connected to another small island! We were all able to walk across to it!!!! The water was only a few inches at it deepest point to cross. My husband and I both thought it was cool that were able to get on an Island that almost no one goes on! 🙂

This is our Pumpkin Pie rock!

Here is huge rock that we thought was the perfect table and chairs for our picnic! 🙂

There were a TON of Monarch on the Island! It must have been the ones that are migrating to Mexico from Canada. I think at one point I spotted 6 of them in one area!

We found one that looked ingured and so I helped the girls pick it up and look at it. It was a male butterfly (as Bunny informed me). I love it when we have a chance to get up close and personal with nature!

Here is a piece of drift wood that my Hubbie thought looked like a ostrige! It was too funny!

There were all sorts of Butterflies in the area! It was cool to see different ones!

Here is the grassy path we walked on

Here is Bunny pointing to another Island. This part of the beach was cool because it was all solid rock! What a cool way to talk about bedrock and to feel it!

Here we are headed onto the little Island we found! See how tiny it is?

We made it!

Here is a picture that Bunny took for me! She is pretty good!

Another Butterfly!

The girls were also able to get in a little bit of awesome pumpkin crafting! The lady that ran the bed and breakfast that we stayed at, found some craft supplies and let the girls paint the pumpkins she had! They had so much fun using the glitter glue and stickers to decorate them! Thanks so very much to the wonderful lady who made that fun for them!

Like I said we were able to have a bunch of fun and we all got to relax! It was really fun and I am so glad we got to go! I am also glad to be back to blogging! There was no internet on the Island that I could find! I hope that you pop back tomorrow for some more rock week fun! Happy Schooling!

A New Milestone and New Memories!!!!!!

Well I am so exited to announce that my little blog has reached 100 followers!!!!!! Thank you so very much for all of you wonderful people who read my blog and leave your comments! It means so much that you like reading all about my adventures with my kiddos! Thank you for all of the support that you have offered me in the past 10 months since I started my blog. I really love being part of this wonderful community of Moms! It has been a blessing and I think you all!

Now on to our day! We have been blessed here with some warmer weather and today I started to feel that cooler air moving in. So I took advantage of one of our last warm days to get the girls to the zoo! Now it was looking overcast but the weather radar said it was moving out, so off we went! As we got to the zoo the rain started! Thankfully it only last about 10 min and the rest of the day was really nice! We got to see all the animals that they have been asking to see for a while! It was great. In the cooler weather I have found, the animals seem to move about more! This of course make it more fun! We have several large animals in our zoo that have babies and it is always fun to watch them playing! Here are some pictures of what we saw today!

Here is our Giraffe Family

The baby giraffe was running all around and it was the funniest thing I have ever seen! Those long legs are so awkward! 🙂 At one point he ran around in a large circle and wiped out on the hill! He went rolling a bit, then was back on his feet running around!!!! It was too cute!

Gray Wolf

There was a little rabbit statue and Bunny wanted her picture by it!

Pup of course didn’t want to be left out!

Next we observed seals. There are two in this aquarium, Harbor Seals and Gray Seals.

We talked about how seals are mammals. They have fur, they have babies, they need air, and they nurse their babies! Bunny hadn’t looked at them that closely before, so it was fun to slow down and observe them better. I think that this is something that I want to do more with her as she gets bigger.

Posing with the Polar Bear Mount.

Here is the Sloth Bear. It was cute because I would place my hand by the corner of the glass and the bear would come up, smoosh his nose in the corner, and woof his breath. I could feel it and hear it. Bunny wasn’t going to get that close to a bear, but he was really sweet {behind the glass ;)}.

Here is our baby elephant Lucas again. He is just too cute and so much fun to watch. We stayed there for quite a while Bunny really watched the elephants. She noticed that their faces look sad. I assured her that they weren’t.

We got to see Lucas nursing.

They he started running around

Mom showed him how to hold down a branch with a foot and lift it with the trunk.

It was cute to watch him do what mom did!

Then he started playing with a log! I know there are quite a few pictures of the elephants, but they are so fun and so close now!

Bunny and Pup both wanted to eat watching the elephants.

These are masks that are hanging in the children’s area. Both girls love to try them out!

There are also Guinea pigs for the kids to hold and pet.

Here are my little zoo lovers on the elephant at the zoo!

Bunny even got a picture of me! She told me: “Mom it is so good that I am big enough to take pictures. That way we have some pictures of you!” I love my Bunny!
So that is our day. I am hoping that we get some more warmer weather before the snow hit, but if we don’t at least we got to the zoo one more time! We will however head back to see the lights they put up at Christmas time! They have millions!!!! Thank you all again for all of you who stop by and read what I have to say You are awesome!!!! Happy Schooling!

An African Safari!!!

Today we were able to use some tickets to the local African Safari…..yes I said safari!!!! This place has African animals wandering around for you to feed as you drive through their area! There were Zebras, Giraffes, some kind of deer things, Buffalo, and alpacas! We were given pellets and carrots! All we needed to do was roll down the car windows and drive through!!!! The animals wandered right up to car, put their heads in and eat anything you give them! 🙂 Bunny thought it was fun, but Pup was a little unsure of {read freaked out} by the big animals! 🙂 Here are the pictures that I was able to take {It was incredibly hard to get a good pic from seat I was sitting in the car}!

The giraffes and Zebras were behind fences, but you could still reach to feed them!

I had to stand up in the car to reach to feed the giraffes!!!! Too Cool!

They also have a walk through park with some other animals to see! Most are ones we have the zoo, but it was cool!

These are porcupine 
There a quite a lot of monkeys {much to Pup’s delight} and they were all playing and moving around!!!!
 I love it when the animals are playing!

These are ring tailed lemurs!

Bunny was really interested in seeing the geese and swans! They were making all sorts of noise!

Crested Pigeon

After seeing {and feeding} animals we needed a snack!

Then we got some smashed penny souvenirs! 🙂

Pup’s has a zebra

Bunny’s has a giraffe!

This really was a cool experience! The girls both thought it was great! I am so thankful to my friend for giving us these tickets! It was a once in a lifetime experience!!!!

Garden adventure!!!!

Well my lack of posting is due to the awful virus that as hit poor Pup! She came down with it on Thursday afternoon and she has had a fever since. This has made her rather clingy and unhappy. 🙁 So far, no one else has it thank the Lord! I was so glad that it ended last night! Unfortunately I think it might be some time before Pup in back to her normal self! She is wiped out! This has left me very little time to figure out a new theme this week, so we are going to do “f” is for fall again!

Now for something new that I wanted to post a while ago. On Thursday morning {before Pup got sick} we went out the an education park/garden {I’m not sure what to call it}. We went with our homeschool group. The older kids { 5 and up} had a pottery class and the other moms took the littles out for a walk to explore! They have so many amazing places for the kids to go and connect with nature! There is  a fairy garden, a large musical instruments place, and a bio dome with all sorts of  exotic plants! Not only was Bunny so excited to make a pottery item {I will let her work be a surprise post later} but Pup had a ton of fun exploring! Here are some pictures of all the fun the little had!

Here the tree as you enter the community garden area! I LOVE the leaves! Each one is different! I totally think that this is going to be a fall project here!

This one is wool.

This one is wire and beads

This is glass! So cool!

Aren’t they cute?!

There is tunnel system that has three entrances/ exits!

Here is a little play house area!

Rock wall!

Balance bean! I want to put one of these in the backyard!

These are drums in the instrument area!

Coming out of the tunnels!

Here is Pup playing the chimes!

This is another great backyard idea. This is a large piece of stone and they have a bucket with a paint brush for the kids to draw with water!

Feeding the fish in the bio dome!

It was a really awesome time for everyone! Pup had fun playing outside, and like I said, Bunny had so much fun with the class  she wanted do pottery again! She even wants to throw her own! I guess we found a new art medium that she wants to explore more! Like I said it was a great day! I cant wait to have more days like this! I  am in the middle of working out a way to incorporate more little trips into out week! I love doing those things and sometimes I forget to! I hope to get a few more in before the really cold weather hits! Happy Schooling and Exploring! 🙂

Montessori Monday~ "M" is for Maps, Money, and Monarchs!

Well today really just didn’t go as planned! 🙂 Oh well! It turns out that having such a busy day at the fair, the girls were rather tired and not interested in quite work! Neither were Bug and Tadpole! So Instead of forcing work time, I gathered up the kids and some lunch and we headed out to the park! Now being that this is Tuesday and since we didn’t have much work time, I was starting to feel that familiar pressure to get them doing what I thought they should. I mean, I made all new plans and new trays. But then I thought that we will have time for that later! For now we needed to get out, and I am so glad that we did! My plan was to work on learning about Money and Maps. This is not really possible out on a walk, but looking for Monarchs was! So “m” is for money, changed into “m” is for Monarch!!! We were lucky that we were able to spot a few flying and to see the compete life cycle in the gazebo that is reserved for their Monarch conservation!!! Bug, Bunny and Pup loved to see them! As we headed into the butterfly garden, a monarch butterfly flew right into us! I was able to catch it and the girls got a chance to see a butterfly up close! It was one of those special learning moments that really made an impression on the girls! I can see why Montessori always started with real things! They are so much more meaningful! After that the girls were so excited to look for more! It really was a great trip and it made us all feel better!
After that it was nap time, and Bunny and I had some time to work in the kitchen. Earlier in the morning I had done the Teen Board with her and I was so proud of her for mastering it! We picked a number, put it on the board and she picked out the proper beads! She did it all perfectly! So later I wrote out different numbers between 10-20 and she made to make then out of marshmallows! She did they all perfectly! She even remembered the names of the numbers! She of course was rewarded with being able to eat some of those marshmallows! 😉 She loves math she can eat! So anyway, here are the pictures of our day! Beware there are alot of them! 🙂 I will start with this weeks trays and move on to the work and the walk!

Book Basket

Whole hand transferring (mostly for Tadpole)

Money sorting

 (this was taken out due to the fact that Bunny and Bug both said that this was a cupcake and that doesn’t start with “M”. Cant sneak anything past them! )

Penny designs on the Hundreds Board.

Tracing around coins
Pup and Bunny were working again this morning before we got dressed! I’m starting to be embarrassed by the amount of pics I have with the girls in their PJs! 🙂 But I cant kill their enthusiasm!

Bunny put all the pennies on the board! She thought it was fun!

Here is Tadpole (after we got dressed).
The whole hand transfer turned into whole hand throwing!  Oh well we will try it again another day!

I did pull out the Honey Bear with cotton swabs. He really LOVED this! He really seems into putting thing into containers. The coin box was a hit and now this. I need more ideas of activities like this. Hmmmm….

Bug did a puzzle map! This is pretty hard for her and It took a little persuading to get her to finish!

She also tried coin sorting.

Here is Bunny coloring her Mallow Fairy coloring page. She really works hard to make it look like the picture!

Here is Tadpole working with a work I threw together real quick. All it is is little wooden sticks that he needed to stick into the bottle! He really liked doing this for a while!

Bug made some new flower arrangements for our tables!

Here is Bunny working on the Teen Board.

After she did the board, I took the tiles from the Hundreds board, put them face down, and let her “draw” one and make the number! She did great with this too!

Here we are at the park. Bug is looking at the conservation gazebo!

Here is a newly emerged butterfly drying its wings!

Here they are looking at the life cycle poster.

Here is the Butterfly that we were able to catch!!!!
 Bunny was able to get a picture for me (those are my hands)

Bung found a flower that was her favorite color!

Here are the maps that are along the trail! So we were able to talk about maps and how they get us to places!!!! Yeah for spur of the moment learning! 😉

Another Monarch we saw!

Here is a caterpillar that we almost squished! It was really pretty!
Another great chance to talk about the butterfly life cycle!

Here is a seed pod thing that Bunny found. She really thought it looked like the flower bud the Mallow Fairy was holding. It maybe from a Swap Mallow. I have to look it up!

Here is marshmallows math! 😉

She really did well and loved it!

And it was yummy too!  😉
So that was our day! I hope yours was good too! I am linking this post up to Montessori Monday over at
One Hook Wonder and Living Montessori Now! There are, as always, awesome ideas! Check it out!

Fair Day!!!!!

Well today was the day that we headed out to the fair! Every year on Memorial Day weekend, we go out to the fairgrounds where my hubbie spent his youth and, well, do fair!!!!! The girls were so excited! I had gotten the book Hurry Down to Derry Fair. This is a really sweet book that has a nice rhyming text and really touches on all the elements that are a part of the county fair! After reading the book several times this week, Pup wanted to ride a yellow horse (on a Merry go round) , and Bunny wanted to see it all! 😉 The day was rather chilly here (only 59) an I thought it would warm up more. It didn’t. So thankfully my sister in law had a blanket that I could put over Pup in the stroller! Other then that it was a busy and fun day! We were even able to meet up with some friends! Here is what we saw!

This is one my sister in law’s cows.

Here are my sweeties.

Bunny is looking at the drafts horses.

Here are my other sister in law’s beef calves

As you can see by the ribbons, they did pretty well! 🙂 Yeah them!!!!

Here is a bunny that Pup is looking at.

Bunny decided that she loved the bunnies! 🙂 We talked her about maybe showing them when she get bigger. That is a big maybe, but she liked the idea! 😉

Here is my hubbie showing the girls some baby goats.

The food there is awesome!!!!! The milkshakes are to dye for! They the best ever!!!!

Me and my cutie! 😉
(Yes I took this myself)

Aren’t these pictures of the produce barns amazing! They are so classic America!!!!

Here are the canned goods! So pretty (and so much work)!

Here is Pup on her “yellow” horse!!!

They also rode train.

Pup waved every time she went by! It was too hard to get a good pic of her smile! Bunny loved riding it so much she rode it twice!

They also wanted to watch some Dairy Heifer Judging. It was a little long, but they didn’t want to leave!

Bunny was fascinated!

This is the cake my sister in law made for judging. She got a blue ribbon!!!!!
(yes is is looking a little limp, but it has been sitting in the heat for days!)
Isn’t it amazing! I love it!

This is the tire of a HUGE tractor that was on display!!!! The kids had fun sitting and standing in it!

Here is our friend climbing up to the cab. It was way above my head!

He was so happy to get to the top!

Even the little one made it up!

Here are the draft horses getting harnessed.

Isn’t this the perfect fair pic?
He is too cute!


So that was the fun of out weekend! I hope yours was fun too! This is the last fair of the season and I think summer really is over! Bring on some fall fun! 😉
