Fair week first for the first timer

He is mighty proud.

First he introduced Moon to the cousins.

Then he “helped” prep her for the show.

He did what he had been told to do (with a little help from Dad).

He smiled and waved at his adoring fans.

He answered the judge’s questions.

And he’s still holding that blue ribbon …

    Too cute – still laughing at some friends whose daughter had a division champion with her hog but she was most upset b/c she wanted fifth place – that ribbon was green and her favorite color is green – not purple. LOL!! To be so innocent again . . .
