Be Back In a Few Days!

Tomorrow afternoon (after we go to the doctor to get shots) Tia and I will be heading over to the county fair! We have to spend two nights there for 4H. We show cows. Did I ever mention that before? I must have. To be more specific Tia shows cows. I used to, but I stopped showing so I could focus on helping all the other kids. My Uncle Jay's family owns the farm, my Aunt Jen is the 4H leader, and my family makes up a large part of the 4H group. I felt bad seeing my aunt so stressed over trying to get all the kids ready for the shows. I'm still an active 4H member, though. I love being a part of it. It's been such an important aspect of my life. My summers have been filled with days of helping at the farm, walking my cow, and being at fairs in the show ring. I miss showing a little bit. Especially when I look up and see all the ribbons I've won.

Anyway- tomorrow night and Wednesday night we will be at the fair. I will have no Internet access since there is no way I'd bring my computer there! It'll be a ton of fun, even with the humid and hot weather. That's better than rain, though. Especially since we have to sleep in stalls on hay, or cots if we have them. Being there also means volunteering to help in the 4H kitchen for a few hours. Needless to say I love doing that as well!

This post is jumping around a lot, isn't it? Oh well. I want to share with you one more of my favorite things, as it ties in with the post so perfectly. Do you like pudding? How about all natural, kosher, gluten free pudding made with milk from certified humane cows? If so you should really, really, really check out this website. That is where I get my pudding. Well, I get it from the farm itself. Echo Farm is the farm my uncle's family owns. I practically grew up there! It's probably my favorite place in the whole world.


  1. the pudding looks wonderful!! Im not in New England but I may just have to save a few pennies and splurge on mail order - my dad is a huge pudding person

  2. My daughter is a cow fanatic. She'd be so jealous to know that you get to walk one, lol!

    I used to lead a 4-H group, but it was a very suburban one, based on the environment. It was tons of fun and I hated to have to step down as leader (my kids lost interest as they started getting older).

    Have fun!

  3. I was in 4-H sewing! Lived on an acre in the country, but only had a cow & some chickens when I was little.
    A couple of weeks ago I watched my 5 year old grandd. Emily 'mutton bustin' at her county fair - first time & she lasted almost 4 seconds!
    They have such a fun fair, & the master gardeners have a GREAT show garden, with ripe berries (blue, goose) you can pick - we love it!
    & indeed, blessed Lammas

  4. Hiya honey! I hope you had a wonderful time at the fair! It sounds like great fun! :)

  5. Enjoy the county fair! I haven't been to one in years, I really should get to more of them. They are a blast.

    Sorry I haven't been by much, I am trying to get better about keeping up with my blog peeps.
