August 8 – 11, 2008:  You haven’t lived until you’ve gone to a small town county fair.  Between the Fireman’s Free Pancake Breakfast, the Senior’s Pie & Ice Cream Social, and the free Commerical Club BarBQ, along with all the 4-H kids and their beautiful exhibits & animals, I just had the best time ever..and ate everything in sight for 2 whole days. One of the highlights was the Soap Box Derby down main street and seeing my brother Troy’s grandson, Troy III, and my brother Glenn’s son, Dean compete head to head.  Did I mention that a GIRL won?  The parade was filled with antique cars, fire trucks, & horses. Then there was the cake judging & sale at the fairgrounds with part of the profits going back to the 4H programs and the rest going to the youngster.  What cute cakes.  I told everyone I was going to check out the entries and that I just might enter next year in Open Class. Well after seeing all these kids cakes, I don’t THINK SO. 🙂 Brother Troy’s grandchildren, Kayla & Troy III were visiting from Wyoming with Anna & Loren so it was good to see those little ones again.  They look so much like Troy Jr. 

We sure missed not having a PowWow this year but the rodeo at the fairgrounds and all the other festivities were great!
