Hello there Folks, it's Baby Henry, reporting from the Stephenson County Fair.

This is me....looking at you.

This week was my first Fair, and good gracious was it a great one.

My favorite part was the sheep barns, where I realized that I could call people over to me with my voice.  Then, when I had them where I wanted them, I showed my mad dancing skills by whipping my head back and forth like a maniac.  The crowd went wild.  Those sheep got no attention that night, let me tell you.

On the other hand, Mama wouldn't me ride any rides or eat any cotton candy, even though Daddy said I could.  Lame.

Farm Zone...see Charlotte's face?  That's how you know she's about to do something naughty.  And sure enough.....

Charlotte's favorite part of the Fair was poultry barn (again).  She just loves those chickens.  Mama says that if that is how chickens are supposed to look, obviously it is time for ours to


Amelia's favorite part of the Fair was riding the carousel and the Ferris Wheel (and the cotton candy).


Olivia loved jumping in the Zero Gravity harnesses, and the funnel cake.  (Surely Mama could make those at home...anybody ever tried that?  The cake, not the harnesses).

Mama's favorite part of the fair is people watching.  She says that she can see our future when she sees all the teenagers at the Fair.  This seems to be both soothing and terrifying for her.  Adults are so strange.

Daddy's favorite part of the Fair is the Junior Livestock Sale, and supporting all the kids who have worked so hard.  Man, I can't wait to show my own cow someday.

Alright, well, there are naps to be not-taken and sisters' toys to snatch.  A baby like me has a very busy schedule this week.

Enjoy your time at the Fair!  Don't forget to go get some of those Hog House french fries.  Daddy says they are the best.


Love, Baby Hen
