My Fair Winnings!

So remember last week how I blogged about my crazy amounts of baking I was doing for the Agricultural Fair? Well, I did good! Every single item that I entered (except for one) placed. I am quite pleased with how I did and I am now here to flaunt it. But really, I should be proud. I worked hard and I did well. I had to work on the Friday so I sent all my baked goods and garden produce with Dan that morning. All the entries had to be in before noon and I couldn't make it out until 8:00pm. Here is a picture of all my stuff that morning!

My entries the morning of the fair
Of course when I arrived that night Dan was trying to be all funny and not tell me anything about what I won. It took me a good 10 minutes to convince him that I NEEDED to know immediately and I couldn't wait until the next morning to find out. He finally caved and told me all that he could remember. It was good enough for me. Here is how I did!

Display of Baking - 1st
Ripe Tomatoes - 1st
Green Tomatoes - 1st
Brown eggs - 1st
Oatmeal cookies - 1st
Chocolate cake - 2nd
Banana Bread - 2nd
Banana Muffins - 2nd
Carrots - 2nd
Chocolate Chip cookies - 3rd
Brownies - Didn't place

Dan was really excited about how we did with our garden produce and eggs. Our tomatoes are pretty awesome, if I dare say so myself. Overall though, we did good!

The rest of the fair was also good. While the weather wasn't ideal and we got rained out a couple times during the day, overall it went really well. I helped out at the information booth for most of the day and Dan was in charge of the nail driving competition. We did get a couple chances to wander around and sample some food. Here are a few pictures that I snapped.

I love corn!

The pretty oxen. They were doing wagon rides later in the day.
