Part I


In the words of Klanci, "California is ALWAYS hot!"...


And it was hot last week.


110 degrees, in fact.


But that didn't stop us from having a GREAT time in Sacramento...


Lindsay and I got in around 2 am on Thursday, and got a couple of hours of sleep before heading to the barns to watch the showmanship contest...


Then we ate a fabulous catered lunch before heading back to the hotel for a swim in the pool and naps...


Did I tell you this show/trip was low stress? Oh, I didn't? Well, it was...


Thursday night was the banquet (where over $42,000 was given away in scholarship money!) and chores...


Friday morning was the show...


Vidalia and Lindsay made a great pair...


And then back home to Oregon.


Most of the pictures we took were on Lindsay and Kati's cameras, so until I can get ahold of them, you'll have to cope with the pictures I took with our ancient (like 2004-ancient) Kodak camera...




I stole some great ideas from these centerpieces at the banquet...


A snapshot of Lindsay....

Meet...Hardy.


Hardy is really a sweet, well minded 7 year old...


See?

And meet Klanci, Hardy's sister...

Meet Brian and Kati....Hardy and Klanci's dad and mom...

And our good friends!


And finally, meet Vidalia...


The main reason for the trip.



More to come....

  1. Is Vidalia a calf raised by SS?

    Looks like a fun trip and it's always nice to meet more people.
