Now the hard part! The Missouri State Fair has come to a close and with that we have said goodbye to the four legged swine kids we have come to love since March. Lola was sold last week back to her breeder. LouLou was sold today in the breed sale. Tears flowed for me today to see her go and Lord knows I wish I had a farm we could keep them all on! I am so proud of Colby and the hard work, effort, continued learning and determination to always do better showing hogs. He truely loves it!!
A great night at the #mostatefair#mostatefair2019#mostate concert This was the my second time seeing them in concert & they get better every time!! ❤️. So close to the stage this time made it even more AMAZING!! Can’t wait to see you in the #showmestate again!! The only thing that would have made it better would have been if @mikkimonsta2015 could have come!! Next time!
Having fun during another storm at the Missouri State Fair!! This time an evacuation. Glad these girlies and Jenni Kleeman were worried about me cause Colby was gonna let me sleep!!

Another say at the Missouri State Fair comes to a close. After nine days in a camper so far I will say I am ready for the luxury of a full size shower and my bed BUT it hasn't been near as bad as I thought it would be!! We are having a blast and Colby is getting to stay up late and enjoy his friends. I took this pic coming back to the camper tonight. My favorite site is the carnival and swine barn all lit up at night!! Another round of showing pigs starts tomorrow!!
A few months ago I was informed that we were nominated as Madison County's Farm Family for 2019! This past Monday, our family had the honor and privilege to represent Madison County at the Missouri State Fair!!! We had such a wonderful day! A sincere Thank you to the University of Missouri Extension, and to the Missouri Farm Bureau! Without you, none of this would have been possible. Thank you to all of our costumers, family and friends!!! Such an amazing award, and a wonderful tribute to all of the hard working farm families in this state! We are so very grateful! Thank you!
Had an ABSOLUTE BLAST tonight at the #mostatefair2019 with the Polo teachers!! They have decided I can be one of them without being on the payroll!! Chicks with Hits was a great show and I got to meet Sparky the Clydesdale up close!!
Missouri State Fair 2019. The first time I’ve even been in a Swine building with hundreds of pigs roaming around, fed a zebra, rode some cool carnival rides, was surprised by a firework display I wasn’t expecting and sweated like crazy in the heat. It was a great trip I will never forget. #mostatefair2019#swine#rollercoaster#ferriswheel#fireworks#goats#oink
