Fair is over once again and that makes us sad! I have to say that my beautiful daughter made me so very proud this year as she won 13 ribbons in all and tried many new things. All of her projects won blue ribbons and 3 of those won honors ribbons. She also won a fourth place in the horse and pony costume contest by dressing herself as a zookeeper and by making her horse into a zebra. How cute she was!!
 Her groovy cupcakes were a hit with the judge at the create a mix booth and she received a blue star for those. She was impressed with the creativity and using the bubblegum flavored icing was a real addition. Way to go Bridget!! I think she is going to try to start a small business using these for birthday parties. She can add flavoring to the cupcakes as well for an added touch. The fact that the cupcakes turn out almost tye dyed is simply exciting for her!!
 She also ran her first barrel race and done rather well considering that her horse is not a barrel horse. She unfortunately ran the wrong way around the first barrel and was disqualified, but better luck next time I guess. I am sure that we will be doing a lot more as she LOVED  doing them. She also done her first trail class and done well in controlling the horse when he seemed to be spooked at the yellow rain coat that she was to rub across him. Oh well! He will learn the same as she is.
 She sold her bunny at the 4-H auction on Friday night and was thrilled that it sold for $100 and the gentleman who purchased it was only doing so to sponser children so she got to keep the rabbit as well. We really would not minded if he would have kept it, but she can pass it to someone else now. Her total earnings were $125 so she was happy about that and that will go into some of next years projects.
 Well, looking forward to next year and hoping that she had as much fun as I did. For anyone who has never participated in a county fair, you really don't know what you are missing and I say if you have ever thought about entering an item into the fair, then do it!! You will not be sorry that you did!
