going to the fair ....

... with these little guys:

One of my girls is a 4-H'er with her cavies (guinea pigs) 
and we'll be at the fair for the next few days.
I promise to have lots of fun pictures of country life from our very old fashioned fair.
When we were down there today for pre-fair stuff, 
we saw lots of cows, geese, ducks, chickens, goats, etc. 
all being brought to fair in their varying degrees of pick-up truck apparatus.
We saw a bumper sticker:
"Beef - it's what's for dinner"
It made my girl sad.
That's why we do cavies.
They're only for dinner in Peru.

Oh they are so cute! Can't wait to see more photos. Hope they win a big prize!!!!

These are adorable little creatures. I have to admit. That bumper sticker is SO prevalent where I live in beef country. That's also why it's so hard to be a vegetarian in a state that makes its living slaughtering cattle.

have a fun time at the fair.

How adorable!!!! Those sweet little faces made my day! I remember taking our kids to the little fair in town when they were small. We always enjoyed seeing the animals - rabbits seemed to be a fave. Have a super time and take a bunch of pics! Hugs, Terri xoxo
