The kids were so bored in this picture. Within a minute of this picture they were all hanging on the bar. We went to the Kern County Fair and Ryan ran into a ton of people he knew. Long time friend and ag teacher Clay was there, and we had to get caught up a bit. We checked out the entries, the animals, and avoided the midway. A Tuesday evening is a great time to go: no one scary was there! Probably one of my favorite run-ins was with Lindsey and David...who I ran into last year in the same spot. (Hello, pigs!) Also, we ran into a Sheriff's officer undercover that is good friend with Ryan. Not to mention Uncle Karl, Aunt Gaye, Shannon R., and others from life. The kids experienced Dippin' Dots for the first time ever. I had part of a funnel cake (YUM). I think we might enter something next year. I don't know what, but I know the kids were all like, "We should enter something!" And they were so serious.
