Anoka County Fair 2015

In the summer of 2014, I decided I wanted to head back to the fair, especially since Nathan wanted to exhibit.  I spent years at the fair as part of 4-H, so it was fun (and weird) to go back....

Here are my canned goods I entered: 


Here are Nathan and Evan with their exhibits -- Nathan did two legos, and Evan did one.  The lady said the legos are the hardest to get a ribbon in, so next year Nathan is going to try something else.

On my stuff, I got a ribbon on everything I entered!






Blue on the tomato sauce!


Blue on the potholders I made for a wedding present,and just decided to enter them at the fair first...

I made this after I saw Christopher's Grandmother had made a bunch of these.  We searched and searched for her pattern, and eventually I was just going to figure it out manually by looking at the old one...and then one day I found the pattern online at some remote site in Oregon!

The three bunnies are mine....not sure why these pictures uploaded all funky...

Red on my table topper -- i loved making that -- free hand cutting...

Blue on my basket!  haha!  hilarious.....

After we looked at our exhibits, we walked around the fair..the kids had fun trying to find pennies in the sawdust.....

Then we watched Motocross for a bit...they thought that was cool and couldn't believe little kids their age did that....

We did a few rides which seriously cost us a fortune...but it was Evan's birthday party so that was fun....

Jeffrey just watched...
