Yesterday, I headed back to the Indiana State Fair to spend a little quality time with my parents and Lil' Sister, her hubby and my sweet, sweet nephew. The weather was perfect (very low humidity) and we had a wonderful time.
Now, you need to know something about my youngest nephew. He loves to wear hats. His daddy is usually wearing one, so I think that has something to do with it. However, he wears them so low that they cover his eyes - and most of his face.
So my photos from the Fair this fine day do NOT show his cute little face and infectious grin.
Oh well, he's still a cutie. Here he's at the Pioneer Village looking at the animals.
"Hey Mama, look at those horns!"
We also visited Little Hands on the Farm. Now, my dad (his papaw) is a farmer so this isn't anything new for my nephew, but it's a fun activity for the little ones and if you have small children, I encourage you to take them through it.
First he grabbed a basket and refused an apron. Then we headed to the grain bin and he picked up a packet of corn and a packet of soybeans. Can you tell which is which?
Then he fed them to the pig - pigs eat BOTH soybeans and corn.
Then he got a NEW Pioneer (seed) hat! And we saw his face for just a minute...and then it was gone!
We then visited the livestock barns. The nephew really enjoyed milking the cow!
At the end of the experience, he had to take his crops to the market to sell...
and hooked a fish just like Daddy.
Oh well, mom and dad looked good.
