No matter the heat, the show must go on. Granddaughters Emily and Cara were showing their pigs at the Moniteau County Fair. I was glad it was them in the ring, sweating in their boots. At only 10:00 am, the temperature had already climbed to 95 degrees.
Emily was focused and all business. I know she hates it when I say this, but when did she grow up….
Anna was happy to be watching on the sidelines. She and James spent the night with us last night. They got us to the fair on time.
Cara’s pig was over 300 lbs. I’m not sure I would have been willing to walk around with seven or so 300 lb pigs roaming around. She did a great job with hers though.
I think James’ eyes are browner than usual due to the chocolate doughnuts he ate for breakfast.
Around and around we go. Tell me again how those judges decide which pig is better than the others…. They all look the same to me.
Emily proudly displays her placing ribbon. Very proud of you Em!
I swear Cara was playing up to the judge. Every time she walked past him, she flashed him a killer smile.
This is the killer smile she kept flashing. I’d be smiling too if I was displaying a first place ribbon from the Cole County Fair and a second place ribbon from today.Way to go girls! You make a grandma proud!
