Elbert County Fair

Today we went to Kiowa to the Elbert County Fair for the Jr. Livestock Sale.

Hanging out in the shade after the buyer's BBQ.

Me and Auntie Katie in our matching outfits...we didn't even plan it!

Hanging out with Charley in the steer barn.

Riley and Bob - this was Riley's first year in 4-H and she did great, winning first in her class! I hope Riley enjoys 4-H and fair as much as her Aunt Katie and I always did!

Watching the sale with Uncle Jase, although I was much more interested in playing with his sunglasses than watching the sale.

Cousin Gary selling his first place steer.

Cousin Sydney selling her third place steer. When Syd came over to us after the sale, the first words out of her mouth to T were "You don't have a hair bow on!" It had gotten pretty hot, so we had already taken it off, much to Syd's disappointment!

And little Miss Lindsay had two goats and did great with them this year, also her first year in 4-H. She got a first and second place (with Hammer Ranch goats I might add)! But darn it, Aunt Emily's camera wigged out when Lindsay was in the ring with her picture :(

We had a great day at the fair and are headed back for the ranch rodeo tomorrow!
