Charlie was the only one that competed in the big wheel races this year - the other two were too old. He got third in his heat!
Will and Charlie did Mutton Bustin' again. This was Will's last year and he did well. Charlie wasn't really sure that he wanted to do it (I sort of made him). He got first at the noon show and was able to come back at the evening show for the championships.
He got second in the championship! He received two trophies and a belt buckle! Here is getting his trophy from the ISF queen! He said afterwards that he is retiring!
Anthony was selected to do butter sculpting again this year. He made a person - he didn't win, but he got a cool ribbon again!
It is tradition for our family along with my brother-in-law and his family to go down the big yellow slide together. We always do this on a weekend when Jon and Ed both are there.
Little Hands on the Farm - my kids are getting older - just two this time! :(
Just a view of the fair! It's also tradition to ride the sky glider with our family and Ed's. Grandma GG rode with us this year!
Charlie riding on Andrew's shoulders. Having older cousins is the BEST!!
The boys tried the cow chip throwing contest this year.
The boys visiting Clifford at the IPTV booth in the varied industry building.
One of our favorite spots - the DNR building. One day we went to go check out the ducks and they were CRAZY!! There was also a Jeopardy game inside to play.
We went to Hairball again this year. This time our good friends Kelly and Michael joined us!
Ed, Shawna, Jon and I went to the Florida Georgia Line concert. Very good!!
Florida Georgia Line!
Those are just a few of our highlights. I always hate to see the fair come to an end - for more than one reason. It's always a sign that summer is over and school is about to begin. And, it's all over! Can't wait for next year!
