What Happens When You Turn a Six Year Old Loose at a FFA Cake Auction?

The temptation was too much for our six year old, Bryce.  He saw all these sugar coated treats and couldn't help himself with his bidding.  Paige and I stayed at home, we had a "cranky" day yesterday and she needed to go to sleep at an earlier time so we missed all the fun. 

The Petaluma FFA Cake Auction is a fundraiser for Petaluma FFA.  It happens once a year and is always something to look forward to.  Before Dominic and Bryce headed over to the event, I gave Bryce my point and shoot camera with instructions to take some photos of the event.  He loves a job, especially when it involves my camera.

Bryce surveyed the goods.

Picked out his choices to bid on.

Before the auction, a potluck dinner is eaten by the guests.  A huge array of food to choose from.

Okay, back to the cakes.  This next cake up for bid was Bryce's front runner.  He REALLY wanted it.

The bidding is up to $55, the auctioneer looks at Bryce and asks, "Will you go $60?"

Bryce yells, "I'll go $100!!" 

Going once, going twice........SOLD for $60 to the 6 year old with Daddy's check book!

Sold again to the 6 year old!

And one last time, SOLD for $90 to the 6 year old! {this homemade toffee is to DIE for! Worth every dollar!}

It's a good thing we have our annual Marin County Farm Bureau holiday dinner planned for tonight, because the 20 pound cake is going to the restaurant with us.
