Ribbons and Floats

Wow, what a busy day we had yesterday!  Fair time is always a busy time.  I think this summer is going to be super busy for us.  We drove back out to Pt. Reyes - West Marin Fair yesterday afternoon to pick up Bryce's fair entry. 

I think I'm going to have to find out how to become a judge for the baking entries at these local fairs......don't these look yummy?!

I loved this creative cake............

A table full of goodies to be judged.

There is a category for almost anything you can think of at local fairs.  Here are some of the sewing entries.  I love the homemade pin cushions!  And the pajamas were sewn by our little friend Camilla Taylor......which won 'Best in Show' in the sewing division!

Ceramic dragon entry.

Back outside, we found some chicks.....

Color guard on an amazing draft horse.

Look how big this draft horse is!  A gentle giant.

Some geese and a busy goat.

Time to leave the fair.  Bryce received 100% on his entry and received a gold ribbon.  He's a happy boy!

After the fair, we drove over to our friend's house, the Taylors over at Bivalve Dairy (the same friends who invited us to their house for the Temple Grandin luncheon) to help work on the float for the parade on Sunday (today).

The Taylors are members of the Pt. Reyes-Olema 4-H Club who are putting the float together for the Western Weekend parade. Their club has invited the other local clubs to help decorate and ride on the float.  Bryce will be one of the Tri-Valley 4-H Club members riding along. 

The theme is "The Three Little Pigs" so the float was made out of brick, straw and sticks.  So fun to build!

Stay tuned for the parade and BBQ update tomorrow!

Happy Sunday!
