The sun wanted to give Bear and Tink a beautiful backdrop for their pictures.
Mommy even got in on a picture. Thanks Tall Guy!
All Bright-Eyed and Bushy-Tailed ;-)
The Bus Cometh........
And the Bus Taketh Away! Thanks Sandy! And as soon as Tink and Bear were safely boarded, I was off with Glenda to do our thing at the Indiana State Fair! Not time for tears or worries!
We served as hostesses at the Farm Bureau Building. It was a bit quiet in the kiddie corner with most munchkins in school, but we had a few come by.
Time to weigh in and see where you are in pig pounds and years. I think I am around the size of a 4 month old pig! Not too shabby, but not sure how pigs years translate into people years? Hmmmmm ...... Destiny might come into play here!
This is our Wonder Trail for the youngsters to follow as they visit the fair. It's also a great place to find locations for lost visitors! Glenda is helping do just that below.
Our next duty was to help with the Taste of Indiana. Our table greeted everyone as they first came in the door. We served up "squeaky cheese" or cheese curds (try saying that about 300 times without saying turds once in a while! DANG!). Many of our older visitors' faces lit up when they heard me say "cheese curds," and they were the ones who taught me the other name of squeaky cheese. This cheese, graciously donated by Fair Oaks Dairy one of the BEST places in the state to take your children to learn, have fun, and eat great cheese and ice cream!, is brand new cheese that hasn't had time to age. About 99.3% of the people who tried it loved it, but they were surprised when it actually squeaked! I TOLD them it would happen, even told them we had taken the mouse out and just left his voice!
It was a great day at the fair, but I was glad to be home, collect my girls, and have a little down time before the whole lovely bedtime routine! I hope in a about a week we will all be settled into a happy smooth game plan for the morning. Today's morning, however, showed lots of room for improvement. Sigh... and so it goes! ;-)
