South Texas State Fair

For the past two weeks The Fair has been in town. And I have to say the weather has been absolutely beautiful!

R2's Pre-K class took a field trip there to see and learn several things. One of those being how milk gets from the cow to your dinner table.

And the gentleman did a great job explaining this but I think it was a little over the kids heads. I mean they are only 4-5 years old and they really don't care how many different kids of milking cows there are or what temperature the milk is as it leaves the cow.

And for those of you who want to know the answer to last question it is 100 degrees.

After the show each child was given a small plastic bottle of Borden's milk. They even got to choose, white, chocolate, or pink. Of course mine chose pink. He does love anything strawberry flavored.

But what they really wanted to do was go to the petting zoo.

R2 isn't much on petting anything but he does like to look at them. And once he warms up to them he will give them a very quick pet more like a let me just touch my finger tips to your fur and I'm done kinda thing.

I did manage to get a few shots of him after I asked him to pose.

Here he is with some baby deer.

A baby bull.

And my favorite, a baby buffalo.

Oh my word. Baby deer! And buffalo! How cool is that?

100 degrees? I had no idea. My Daddy loves farming. We are going on a farm tour this summer as part of our vacation : )

I know. I know. You just can't handle how glamorous my life is... me either.
