Where have I been???

I know Emily and Milah will relate to where I have been...

Next week is our county fair (formerly known as the McQuinley vacation...we got to camp there as a kid). Phillip is in mini 4-H and has taken 7 projects.. 4 being live animals. He will be showing a pig, calf (Calloway), sheep, and goat (Jackie); as well as turning in 2 posters and a gardening project. This is a family affair and we are all very busy trying to get animals to do things they would rather not, like walking on a leash. (Her leash is very cute...mint green from the Vera Bradley outlet sale.) Goats would rather be eating anything than walking around with a mint green collar! She is doing great and cute as a button. Calloway (name is from Home on the Range) has a bit of an attitude. Last evening we were taking a walk (again something she would rather not do) around the barn lot and she was choosing to jump and hop. A calf jumping and hopping is not the best situation to find yourself in (I am sure emily relates to this!). Any way one hop and jump and I land myself a trip to the emergency room. Nothing was broken, but I am sporting a beautiful splint on the right thumb. they say 7 days, i say until the swelling in down, We will see.

Anyway if you are in need of a funnel cake, corn dog, elephant ear, or homemade ice cream come visit us next week! I am guessing it will be an eventful week and loads of fun!
