Our two little two-year-olds had fun together. Caroline is six months older .
Little Miss Lucy had been at the fairgrounds several days and knew her way around.
What would a fair be without cotton candy??? (Just ask Jack!)
Caroline, Lucy and I had to have a ride on the pretend horse.
Then Ellie, Abbey and one of Abbey's friends had to have a turn!
Ellie loved the slide that went down into the corn.
Lucy must have filled this bucket a million times.
Ashley and Abbey were busy cleaning bunnies and getting them ready to show.
The little girls had to give each other a couple hugs throughout the day.
Then the showing began with a showmanship class.

She got first place and a beautiful trophy for the best overall livestock notebook.
Then on to some serious showing!
What a fun class! They had costume classes for rabbits and guinea pigs.
Third place in this one - not too bad.
When Abbey was finished showing, we brought Lucy home with us to get cooled off. It was SOOO hot on the fairgrounds and these little cheeks were getting pretty red.
When Ashley and Abbey got here to pick up Lucy, we couldn't believe it. Abbey won the traveling trophy for Grand Championship high point of all rabbits and guinea pigs! She ended up winning four trophies and I forgot to count the pile of ribbons. Way to go Abbey, we're do proud of you (and your mom). Tomorrow she will be competing in the vocal contest singing "Don't Rain On My Parade". Good luck sweetheart!
Now it's on to getting the shop ready for "An Evening In The Country". Hope I'll see some of you there!
Until next time...
