Greased pig

Our wild adventure week continues. Monday and Tuesday morning we stayed close to home; it was nice to relax. Tuesday evening we headed to the county fair. Gotta love free entertainment. There were lots of carnival rides and Grandma brought smiles as asked the kids to pick a ride.
Ally picked the motorcycle ride and Maverick the Hang glider. Then we supported the local 4-H club with some grub. We passed by tons of commercial sales booths. Every county fair has their "fair" share of water filter salesmen. We saw a few rabbits and chickens, but the main excitement was the Mutton busting. It was a riot watching the young kiddos hold on tight to wild sheep and then disappear into clouds of dust. Maverick participated in the Cattle Stampede, where you try and be the first to grab the ribbon from a cow's tail. Later he attempted to catch a greased pig. Hundreds of kids participated in each event. Ally refused to participate, instead cried out in distress over a cheap plastic tiara that mom and dad refused. The life of a princess is so hard.

Today, a trip to the KC Zoo. It was a perfect day to visit the animals as the kids explored. So many happy memories whenever we visit the zoo. In the Tropical house Maverick proudly snapped a photo, happy to spot the first tiger.

Wow!! Team Make a Difference for Mason Head for the Cure 5K has 65 members! Our hearts burst from your support. So many times this week my insides glowed with pride; we live in such a wonderful place. It's like riding your favorite carnival ride over and over until your insides giggle. So many activities and sights to keep our minds busy. There's a hug in the air. Maybe it's the new way we view our day.

Ferris Wheel lights flicker...as lighting bugs fade into the night.
Good night everyone. May you feel God's Love, as He wraps His arms around us.
