It's Fair Time Again!

Man have we had our share of farm life this summer! Last night we made it out to the Jackson County fair. Emma was telling someone about the fair and she says we go "because that's just what we do". So there you have it. We are fair people apparently. We don't ride the rides, or play games, but we do get to see plenty of farm animals. :)
We couldn't have asked for a better night for the fair. It was so nice out! Our friend Elizabeth is in town again, staying with us for a few days, and we drug her along as well. :)

This took a lot of courage for Josie. In the end she was so proud that she got to pet Missy the cow.

Elizabeth and I hanging out at the hog house. Hey. We are fair people. That's what we do.

Okay, I didn't intend to show this picture because it is the backside of a horse, but look how HUGE this guy is!!! Anytime we go in the draft horse barn I am amazed (and a little scared) of these big creatures. He is not on a raised platform, the horse really is this big!

Poor Elizabeth. I'm sure she did not know that going would mean reading every name of every goat, chicken, lamb, horse, pig, duck, rabbit, etc... that we came across. :)
