AG Day!

and so we loaded up our wagon and ourselves into

our truck and off we went. It was cooler than the last

few days, and lots of people, but we had some fun anyway.

We walked all around the vendor tables and booths, and all around the pond.

The New Jersey Folk Festival was on the other side of the pond, so we purchased some

cotton candy and enjoyed the music for a while. We stopped over at Farmer Dad's Community Garden Plot, on our way over to see the animals and upon leaving we ran into our favorite Camp Katie campers with their family. We all stopped off to have some henna tattoos done

at a booth raising money for Operation Smile and then headed over to see the animals.

Princess really enjoys the sights and smells of the animals and she enjoyed petting everything but the goats..they did not come close enough. The children's favorite was the peeing cow!

Oh yes, it was as gross as it sounds, but we were fortunate enough to be far away from the splashing. Princess has decided she desperately wants a 4H jacket..still another few months

before she is old enough to join. Our friends were heading over to the music festival, and we were surely heading into a melt down, so we left for home after purchasing a hot dog and drying some tears. We missed our other good friends, but they stopped by to see us on their way home. Farmer Dad and I had some dinner and we all watched some t.v. to settle down after a stroll though the garden to check on the plants.We also baked up some hot pretzels to celebrate National Pretzel Day. Yum!

Your pretzels actually look like pretzels!

When we make pretzels they come out looking like salty lumps. They still taste good, though ;)

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
