I love to turn just about anything into a tradition…
Make peaches and cream pancakes on Thanksgiving one year? Let’s do it every year and call it a tradition!
Have biscuits and gravy one Christmas morning? Let’s do it every year and call it a tradition!
I guess I’m especially into food traditions. Lol
The Lenawee County Fair has become one of my favorite traditions the past couple of years. It’s in a small-town, rural area which makes it so sweet. You’ve never seen such GORGEOUS animals in your life! The pigs are fresh pink, the cows are the whitest white and the blackest black and even the chickens are stunningly clean and well kept. The $1 giant ice cream cones from the local dairy are incredibly creamy and delicious and so is all of the deep fried fair fare.
See what I did there? Fair fare.
I crack myself up.
Anyway, this was our 3rd year going and in typical fashion, it was a scorcher! We were hot and sweaty the whole time but we still had so much fun. Here are about a million and one pictures of our day.
This chicken had the craziest “hair do” I’ve ever seen on a bird! LOL
We bought a cup of carrot sticks and the girls (well, mostly Avery) fed the goats. She was SO BRAVE! We couldn’t even believe how well she handled them grabbing the carrots right out of her little fist.
At one point they were so much in her personal space that she shouted, ” OH BY GOSSSSHHH!” We absolutely cracked up.
How unbelievably beautiful are those cows?!?
Grace milking the pretend cow.
Avery getting in on the milking action.
Sleepy piggy. Zzzzzzz.
SOOOOO hot and sweaty, but still smiling :)
I cannot even handle how cute they are. Especially when they match!
Waving at a bunny.
The best sister photo we ended up with. They are such characters!
The best grandma shot of the bunch. It was hopeless at this point.
This one makes me laugh so hard! Avery’s little teeth and Grace as a goat! LOL
Chillin’ by the fence while the big girls took a potty break.
The highlight of Grace’s day. A pony ride!
By the way, the red tulle sash was Grace’s addition to her outfit. She’s been wearing it almost every day since she salvaged it from one of my wrapped birthday gifts.
Another highlight was the carousel. They loved it!
Well, Avery loved it, then cried, then loved it again.
