A weekend at the fair.

We had a lovely weekend!

More about these later, but I'll just put my two cents right here.....
Any weekend that starts out with two dozen red roses is going to be a good weekend.

This week was the Umatilla County Fair, and we had a great time!

It was Chandler's first fair, so Friday night we headed in to visit with our friends in the {Ranch Raised} 4-H club at their trailers, before we headed in to the rodeo.

Chandler last about three events.


He was not a fan of the crazy drunk women behind us (who were having a great time, and were not rude at all - they were just loud, and he wasn't having it) or the crowd and loud noises, so we headed out while Clint stayed with Royce and Terry to finish watching the rodeo.

Chandler looks thrilled, right?  ;)

After a bit of visiting with friends, and riding in the stroller, little man was out like a light.  While he slept, I hung out with Leah until the rodeo was over.

Saturday morning we were up early to head in to help with the UCF Youth Livestock Auction.

It was a great turnout, and a good day for the kids.

Overall prices were down, but a lot of that reflects the current ag economy (which is pretty tough) and at the end of the day - it was still a good auction. 

I love that we are a part of a community that supports youth and agriculture.  In one morning, businesses & individuals showed up and paid over $425,000 to buy 293 animals from kids.  That is cool.

While I was working on the auction block, Chandler either chilled out in the pack & play I had next to me on the block, or Clint and Lindsay took care of him.  So thankful for a great daddy, and friends who help out without being asked.

It takes a village.  And I love the one we live in.

We headed back in Sunday morning to help tear down and pick up panels.  Chandler and I mostly visited, and tried to stay out of the way.  :)


The rest of the weekend was spent hanging out, checking cows with Clint and trying to stay cool.

Speaking of cool....

How cute is this cool dude???


Love this sweet baby of ours - and his daddy - and our life.

I'm sure blessed.

Hope everyone else is living the dream!
