it’s finally friday! or this week i should say holy crap it’s friday?!? this week flew by again! i think it’s because we are leaving for a couple of days and i felt like all week long i’ve been prepping for departure. even though seriously it’s only a couple of days. i think europe scarred me for life. last summer we had to prep for being away for over two weeks. now when i go for two days i plan my month around it haha. maybe europe or maaaaybe it’s because we have about a dozen animals to get ready for our departure. we have people who stay at our house while were gone to tend to the flock but it still makes me freak out.
speaking of flock.. last night we headed to the hudsonville fair. i used to live at that place when i was a kid (ok well up through highschool). it was the cool place to hang out and i was a 4-h kid. growing up i didn’t appreciate raising pigs. at all. it was like totally uncool. however it was great for three things 1.) you had a reason you needed to go to the fair every day 2.) you got to dress up the nights of the show and sale. my hair was always perfect and i had new jeans and a new bedazzled shirt every year. i think my favorite outfit though was black wranglers, black denim vest and a black cowgirl hat. i was so awesome. oh and 3.) it planted a seed for me wanting to have animals later in life.
the fair also is good for just about anything and everything you could possibly get fried. last night we split a “vegetable platter” and cheese curds and an elephant ear. (hey we split it!) then we took my nephew out around to see some animals (after pumping him full of elephant ear) (Oh and don’t tell his mother but i didn’t get to him in time and he licked ranch off a fair table). (i’m sorry loren and steph). builds his immunity though right?
after the fair we got home late and i think i just threw anything that i knew for sure fit into a suitcase and hit the hay. i was so exhausted after this week!
so where are we heading? we are out to san diego for a few days for a conference. we have a free day tomorrow until we meet for dinner but we are hoping to check out the zoo and maybe get to la jolla. any other suggestions?
hope everyone has a great weekend!0
