So far Pork Chop is living with Grandma and Grandpa. I am not budging on that, although believe me, Courtney has already tried. And the bright side? I am told that a ewe typically has a set of twins each year. Hopefully, Kate and Ryenne will be set up for next summer. I'm just praying Pork Chop doesn't kick the bucket, if you know what I mean.
We spent the rest of our day following the girls around while they rode a few of the rides. I say a few because these gals aren't the bravest chicks on the block. With the exception of Kate, who would ride just about anything, the other two were a little hesitant. After Courtney bribed them with 5 dollars if they would ride the ZIPPER, Emmy quickly agreed and then said, "I'll probably just puke after". Lucky for us, she was too short to ride after all. Ryenne got on a quite a few of the more adventurous rides, only to get back off before they started. Her usual explanation was that she "just didn't have a good feeling about that".
(I just laughed when I looked at that last picture. Emmy is thrilled and having the time of her life. The ride is just about her pace. Kate, however, is ticked off that she is on this boring ride and that her older sister is too chicken to ride any of the fun ones with her.)
The girls ended the night with a little dancin' at the bandstand. Then, after one last plate of fair food, we called it a day and wrapped up the county fair. The girls are already looking forward to next year. Lambs, costumes, the sights and smells. They love every bit of it.
Me too. You just wait and see, give me a year and I'll be right back at it.
Hopefully Ryenne will spot us a bit of change to pay for it all.
