Sign me up for 4-H!

Oh how I love the fair!!
We used to grow up going to the fair in Nebraska...
and my cousins would show their hogs and cows!
I loved it and always had a piece of me that wanted to
be the one slappin' the rear end of one of those big ol' swine...
as the judge looked on!
Well...we are blessed to live right next to the
Douglas County Fairgrounds!
And it is FAIR TIME!!
We have honestly been almost everyday this week!
First we went and watched the girls...
in all their rhinestoned beauty...
show their horses.
Then we went back to see the pigs, lambs, goats, ducks, chicken, and cows!
Oh my! Allikaye LOVED the "amals!"
She would crack up when the sheep would yell and pigs went crazy!
She would put her hand on her face and say,
"silly sheep!"
Of course my favorite part was dressing Allikaye in her cowgirl boots!
She had on a shirt with a horse...
and those BOOTS!
Oh I couldn't take my eyes off her!
And finally...we went on our DATE NIGHT to the...
Matt and I were hoopin' and hollerin'with all the country folk!
Here I am in all my rodeo ready gear!! I am even rockin' the salsa!
Here is my cowboy...I told him to look country...hmmm..

well, miss ashley, i do believe all you would have to do is enter allikaye in the pageant if you want her to wear a tiara (she's gorgeous and would be a shoe-in;)!!!
just whatever you do, don't let her be a bull or sheep rider... YIKES:o
