Since we were taking our nephew and niece, Dominic and Addison, I decided to take Jude's wagon in case they got tired of walking and wanted to hitch a ride. Plus, it was incredibly hot out, so I thought they may need a rest. Clint, Ron (my father in law) and myself took turns pulling the kids.
When we arrived, they were auctioning off the sheep. I was confused at first because they were going so cheap....but then Clint told me that it was per pound! That is why they were going for about $2.00. Little sheep are likely already in the purchasers freezer or belly I suppose. The auctioneer was a pro! He was talking so fast that it was difficult to understand what he was saying. It made it fun to listen to!
I think that Jude's favorite part of the entire fair was likely the pigs and goats because of how close he was able to get to them. Also, I know he loved the draft horses. They were so huge and his eyes lit up when he saw them as they are becoming a pertty big obsession of his lately.
After the fair, we went to drop off Dom and Addison at their house and the kids decided to ride bikes and their Power Wheels! Jude loved driving! His sheer happiness is evident in the pictures below.

Jude was very intrigued by this gobble gobble.
