The Mighty Howard County Fair

This past week was the local county fair.  We thought we would show some pictures for those of you who aren’t sure what the main attractions of a Midwestern fair are.

Since we’re aspiring livestock owners, we spent some time in the 4H animal barns, where we instantly learned we know nothing about farm animals when compared to real farm kids.


Hairy Cow Calf.

Fancy Chicken.

Turken (Chicken meets Turkey).


Sheep in weird cloak thing.

After I had really demonstrated my comfort level with cow tongues, we moved on to my favorite part of the fair–the 4H project booths! It was hard to come away unimpressed by the creativity.

Here, we have a washers yard game, cameo pjs, an apron, and 8 snickerdoodle entries!

A blanket, a cake shaped like a turtle, and a cross made out of old Squirt pop cans.

Place settings (two), more baked goods, and an “eggselent” diorama of a crime scene investigation.
