A day at the Fair (last week)

Since I have been teaching in the mornings these last few weeks I am behind on blogging- here a few "'catch ups" for things we have been up to.

A few weeks back we went to the Winona County Fair. We took too many pictures to count since I want to make a book out of all of the pictures for Peter to read but here are a few of the best and to give a snap shot of what we did and what the kids thought was the best!

We got a free balloon from the Democrats with a hand-drawn MN on it and drank a lot of free water from the Culligan Man. 
 Checked out the chickens- one of the few animals that Peter liked to see.
 Looked at the baby animals-- ducks, geese, cows, horses, llamas, maybe puppies?
 Watched the sheep show- friends of ours were showing and we sat with another friend who explained the whole process and what the judges were looking for and who she thought did well- she was right every time!

 Looked at art (mainly for pictures of trains and dogs)

Saw what kinds of AMAZING things were for sale... answer: not much

 And looked a lots of tractors.
More Tractors.
 Big Tractors.
 Little tractors
 Pete liked the yellow tractors
 He also thought that Grapa Dan liked that one.
Emi knew which one Grapa Dan REALLY liked though!! 

**Please note: This represents a fraction of the time spent viewing heavy machinery and a fraction of the pictures taken of the tractors***

I love the picture of Emi looking at the duckies with the nice light. :) Dan likes Pete and the bulldozer....hmmmm, sounds like a title of a book. ;) Looks like a fun time was had by all. :)
