County fair ribbons

one of the handsome roosters at the fair

Three of us entered items in the county fair this year. 
We've never even been to a county fair before! 
Talk about fun.

Jonah entered a wood turned pen he made on his lathe.
It has a crusaders cross on it.

It won 1st place in 13-18 wood crafts.

Jared got 2nd place with his pickled okra

not only 1st place on his amazing cinnamon rolls

but Best Baked Goods in the Junior Division!

I entered Pickled Beets and got 2nd

3rd with a dozen eggs.

This was a great first county fair experience.
Next year I'm taking a chicken!

{Update - Sunday, August 28th}
We went back last night to pick up our items at the fair (in the midst of rodeo)
and Jared had this huge trophy waiting for him!

Good job, baker boy!
