The were so many ribbons won at the fair! I won't bore you with the details. The best part (for a mom) was that each of my girls won a purple ribbon. I know that it won't always work out that way, and I will be ready with my 'Life isn't always fair' speech, but for now, I will appreciate the balance of success that my girls achieved.
Reagan's purple ribbon cookies - THANK YOU BETH!
(You know they are worthy!)
Other 'live' contests in front of the judges included:
Food Prep (Taryn only)
Presentations (2 - Taryn only)
Taryn was eligible to send 4 entries to the Oregon State Fair -
I persuaded her to select the two top ribbon winners -
(neither required any additional work-go figure)
That covers the statistics of the fair!
Now for the *tidbits* that I never want to forget:
Taryn's joy at winning her first plaque.
Flower the bummer lamb peeking at us while we were trying (unsuccessfully)
to convince Taryn to try a lamb shish ka bob!
Grace picking up *condom*ents at an unsupervised booth.
Grace + Discovery = Too Much Information (key word 'hair')
Taryn's *date* falling asleep during the movie.
(MOM-It wasn't a date!) Yeah, right!
Reagan, the rock star, loving the lights and music at the concerts!
