The past week was our local fair (yes, the Gratz Fair, Jen). We waited until Friday to take the kids so that we could go with my Mom. Unfortunately, in our part of the world, it poured cats and dogs most of the day.
I had faith that it would stop so we went anyway. Umm, faith does not stop the rain, no matter how hard you want it to. If the Weather Channel says 100% rain all day, you can bet it is going to rain.
The boys were game, though so we bravely battled the storm to eat lunch and visit the exhibits. The animals were our favorite. We marveled over the pretty angora rabbits, carded sheep wool, listed to the pigs oink and petted the goats.
The baby wasn’t too sure about the live animals. Especially the pigs whose “oinks” in the rain sounded especially loud. I, on the other hand, renewed my vow to raise animals soon.
When we got home, we were soaked through. Isn’t it amazing how tiring the rain is? We were all exhausted. Luckily Saturday was a much nicer day.
