We’ve been so freaking busy and dealing with so much that I wasn’t sure if we were going to make it this year, (tomorrow is the last day). Today I feel great.. things are starting to fall into place and I’m almost caught up on my etsy stuff. I need the money so it’s going to be nice to be caught up and able to keep my routine in check when I open my shop up again. Ashton LOVES going to the stock show.. every year he forgets what it’s about. On the way there he wasn’t sure what to expect. I told him it’s like the fair and he immediately lit up! I don’t think I will have to remind him next year.. love this memory stuff! We watched a rabbit judging, (Very interesting. They actually have the rabbits walk and hop along this beam thing) walked around and looked at the cattle/pigs.. it always amazes me how these beautiful clean creatures are kept by children/teens! I wish we lived on a farm so Ashton could experience something like that. I was in 4-H growing up and loved it.. Maybe someday he will too! AND OF COURSE he rode a ton of rides! We were starving towards the end and we couldn’t leave without eating a caramel apple.. Ashton insisted he wanted the “Red” apple.. Red is after all his favorite color.. when he told me that for his birthday questionnaire I assumed he pulled it out of thin air but now that he said that he really does pick EVERYTHING red! funny. He’s never had a candy apple. Needless to say it was a, (very messy) HIT. When you think about it candy apples are actually the best junk food a carnival could have.. it has to be better than funnel cakes and/or cotton candy lol.. My mom still gives me the stink-eye when I get one for myself. We had fun! Would have been even better if Daddy could have come with us and gone to the Rodeo…. ::sigh:: there is always next year!
