Just got back from the fair! Nothing is better than a strawberry-chocolate funnel cake with powder sugar and whipped creme! OHHH YEAH!!
So the funny thing happened in the Petting Zoo tonight. We were bent over petting a goat, and I was all excited because I love goats. Talking it all up for Anthony so he'd get excited. And what do I see when I look back at him, he was petting a little girl's hair who was standing right next to me!
Then again! We were at the calf, and again I was all excited. And what happens? He pets a little boy with this huge mop of soft curly brown hair. I didn't blame him there, it was beautiful hair.
He did get excited when he got to get up close to a friend of ours cow "Legs" Thank you Legs for being so patient with us. She is a beautiful Holstein Cow who won her class earlier today! She was getting ready to go in the show ring one more time. We had a blast playing with the Damas's and Char.
I miss the action of showing. I was telling Ira it was such a HUGE part of my life growing up. Then in college I was on a couple collegiate show teams which I eventually stopped. Then stopped showing open. So now 9 years have gone by with nothing. And to think I was going into Ag Education where it would have been my job to go to the fair. I got a little teary eyed tonight when Ira asked me if I missed it. I think he saw how bright I got when I was telling him about the different animals. I was scratching the face of a huge Suffolk ram at the time. I think that is when I got a little of the "homesick" feeling of missing my sheep.
So when I go back and see it all happening I miss it. Hopefully my kids will get into 4-H or FFA if they choose.
So as I loaded the pics tonight I noticed a picture that my hubby took. He had the camera most of the night.
And also my demise... wouldn't this just suck as the way to go?
