As most of you know, the kids and I spent three entire, long days at our local country fair while Dominic was away on his Scotland trip. Saturday was Farmer's Day where there were all kinds of activities to participate in such as team penning, wild cow milking, calf scramble, boot scramble, egg toss, etc. Bryce was able to participate in the pig scramble and the boot scramble.
The pig scramble is where little piggies are brought into the arena and let loose and all the kids try their hardest to catch one of them, either by the leg or the entire body. It is hysterical to watch this event.
Anticipation before the piggies are let out....
Some of the pigs are let out....
And, they're off and running and very determined.....
Bryce is trying hard to catch up to this piggy....
Cousin, Cam is after one....
Well, in the end Bryce did not catch a pig but his cousin Cameron did. The prize was a $5 bill and a ribbon.
After the Farmer's Day activities we walked back to the motor home (camp) and had some snacks....
Cam's dad, Jim, slicing up some sausage....
Kettle chips and french onion dip.....Oh SO GOOD!
Low fat cream cheese on whole grain crackers topped with Tastefully Simple's Pomegranate Chipotle Sauce (which has a kick to it)....my favorite! Always good to finish off a long day with some tasty food and drink :)
