    Nigerians are teeny, aren't they?!? It is all an optical illusion why they look big in my pictures :greengrin:. Looks like you had a good time!

    Hey Everyone!

    Sarah.. those pics are great :). Oh my goodness did you ever surprise me. I am SOOO glad you came.

    You all should have seen us.. bawling like babies when we saw each other :greengrin:.

    Pixie got 2nd in her class, and Sparrow got Reserve Champ! That was very exciting. Showmanship was a disappointment for me this year, but I think I got myself too worked up over getting ready and pushing myself to win.. so when I got 5th and the judge said that I did things wrong that I for sure did not do wrong, I was pretty upset. Ah well! It happens, and there is always next year. I had a great time anyways, and meeting Sarah was definitely the BEST PART!!!

    :wahoo:

    P.S. I will send a big update everyone's way soon.. I promise. I have been CRAZY busy this year!

    I grew up in Wisconsin and we always went to the fair. It really is one of the best state fairs! Did you have a cream puff?? I now live in Iowa and all of the food here seems to come on a stick. Porkchop on a stick, salad on a stick, shrimp on a stick you get the the idea!
