The 9th Annual Leavitt Fair was a couple of weeks ago. They really went all out this year with a cool banner, and yes, that is me turning hot dogs.
They always have the candy jar counting contest which is the most popular table at the fair for the kids. Let me tell you, there are a lot of little candy pieces, believe me. I counted over half of those 20 some odd jars which made it impossible to even participate. Oh well. Do I really need that candy? I think not!
What is this you ask? These are candy corn on the cobs that the Achievement Girls made. I think it is quite clever myself. Those are Jelly Belly's I believe on top of three cupcakes.
Oh the ever popular lawn mower race. Next year Mark and Neal are going to enter.
What is he cooking that corn in? I asked the same question and do you know what he told me? An old water heater tank. Yah, go figure. Who would have ever thunk?
You are seeing that right. Dipping corn in a pitcher of melted butter. Another great idea!
Look at that pretty blue sky. It only lasted about an hour and boy did the wind kick up. In a matter of minutes the fun moved to the church cultural hall. Those cultural halls are sure handy aren't they?
There are always baked goods to sample and buy and vegetables to show off at the country fair. There is always a homemade quilt that is raffled off as well. Nope we didn't win it but the most deserving elderly couple in the ward did. Lucky ducks! Brother Leavitt (that would be our plumber's dad, yah, I know) just celebrated his 90th birthday so I think it was only fitting that he and his wife won it.
Surprised to see your self on my blog Kelsey? Congratualtions on baby#2!!!
