Cows, Babies and Buckets!
I feel like such a slacker. I have been so good for so long, so consistent and then came our summer vacation and it seems like our life has been a whirlwind of activity ever since.
It's been wonderful - don't get me wrong - but I have certainly missed my special bloggy time. I have so much to update you on and several recipes to post through the Real Farmwives of America "In the Kitchen" partnership with Gooseberry Patch. So without further ado - let the downloading begin!!!
We spent the majority of the past couple weeks either preparing for the Great Indiana State Fair or AT the State Fair. And as you know, on Sat. Aug. 13, tragedy struck the State Fair - and it certainly changed the tone of the Fair to one of sadness, prayer and remembrance. Because of everything that happened, the stories shared, and the lives lost - many of us - who carry a special place in our hearts for the State Fair - have shed many a tear.
But beyond the events of Sat. Aug. 13, this year was the opportunity to create new, happy memories with our Sweet Baby RayRay - you see, this was her first State Fair.
While she was sick with an ear infection for most of our time at the fair, Big D did end up bringing her out on show day, and while I had tons of toys and books for her to play with, she certainly had the MOST fun with a couple of water buckets I used to water my show calves. Despite her best efforts, she was not able to jump in the water bucket. Click through to see our happy girl at her first State Fair.
