State Fair

We went to the State Fair on Saturday the 15th. It was super fun! Matt's sister Mindy and her little family were going too, so we hooked up with them. Kelsey sure loves playing with her cousins. They had a great time together.

Kendal loved the fish and Kelsey, Aly, and Ashley did great at the BB Gun shoot.

Of course I took pictures of a few quilts. This one with stars sure caught my eye, and I think I am going to make a little wall hanging like this one. I love the primitive, simple life it portrays. It was beautifully quilted too.

We had to go see all the livestock. Matt and Will were in deep conversation in the barns. The girls liked it too, here is Kelsey and Ashley by the sheep pens.

We couldn't go to the fair without riding some rides. The 5 little girls cousins were so dang cute! Kendal and Ainsley even had a good time, but a little scared now and then too. I dared Will to ride this mechanical bull, and he did! He was a super sport and he got quite an applause. It was a family day well spent.

We had a great time. Thanks for the day! (Will is still feeling some side effects from the bull!)

That looks like so much fun!!! I wish we had gone, the kids would have loved it especially all the live stock and rides! YOu kids seem to have such a good tiem with thier cousins. It's nice to have family close by for this kind of stuff! Now I am going to try to hit it next year. Mark remembers going every year as a kid and we have never gone in our 8 years of marriage. I love the quilts! That star one is beautiful. You amaze me when you look at something like that and say you are going to make it. I look at it and say, "I could NEVER make that!" and then I'll pay a butt load of money for it becasue I am in love with it.

Looks like you had a lot of fun! I love the pictures of the quilts. Isn't it fun to go and see what type of squares they used. You will have to let me know how your little one turns out!
