Today's the Day!

Today's the day we got to go to the fair, and see how the girls did with most of their entries...
 
Sorry, I can't get this one to rotate!
 
Everyone was very excited to see their entries.
 
 
Admiring the girls' work...
 
 
 
 
Watching Scott Peterson's Reptile Show.
Brianna was chosen to come up and hold the albino
python during the show.  She was very excited about it!
 
Callie wasn't so sure about such a big snake!
 
Serenity wasn't so sure about ANY of the snakes, lol!
 
 
Scott Peterson with his monkey lizard.
This lizard is really quite amazing to watch climb!
 Lots of walking done by all today!
Callie used her walker about half the time today.
But she kept picking up all 4 wheels while
walking and turning, especially early on in the day!
 
Checking out animals.
This was a HUGE cow!
 
The fair is exhausting for everyone - but most especially my littles.
Poor Serenity was super tired before we even got to the fair!
 
This little lamb is just 1 week old today!
 
All of my children were drawn to a baby anything at the fair today!
 
 
Callie is such a trooper!  She found a hill, and went
up and down several times.  She makes sure to get some sort
of therapy in each day, lol!
 
Watching Aztec Dancers.
Their traditional costumes were amazing!
Even with heavy traditional garmets on, these men really put out a lot of energy!
The oldest man on their team is 65 years old!
Watching the Lumber Jack show.
Log Rolling
 
 
 
Spring Board Chopping - considered one of the hardest events
in the sport, because the lumber jack has to be able to
chop over both shoulders.
 
This is one of my favorite parts to watch!
It is a race from the ground, up a 70 foot pole,
where they ring a bell, and then back down
to the ground...and it is over in about 11 seconds!
 
 
 
 It was a very long day.  With no naps for littles and lots of activity.
 
We were glad to finally be back home!
 
Oh, and for those who are interested in the numbers (and don't want to have to read the small print in the picture of my spreadsheet, lol!)...
Anna earned 24 blue ribbons, 2 red ribbons, 4 white ribbons, and 7 special awards.
Bailey earned 22 blue ribbons, 6 red ribbons, 1 white ribbon and 2 special awards.
Ashley earned 11 blue ribbons, 4 red ribbons, 1 white ribbon and 2 special awards.
Brianna earned 9 blue ribbons and 4 red ribbons.
Callie earned 5 blue ribbons and 1 red ribbon.
 
We are so proud of the hard work our girls put into their fair entries!  Way to go ladies!  Keep up the good work!
