Weekend Vibes - Lincoln County Fair

The past week was the Lincoln County Fair and I attended FOUR nights in a row (Wed-Sat). The last time I had been that much was in high school..more specifically, when I ran for Fair Queen myself in 2006...wowser. I ended up on the Fair Queen Court and was there daily fulfilling duties, showing my hog and partaking in activities.. I digress.

I had a great time attending the fair this year. The Cattleman is on the livestock committee so he had various duties throughout fair week - that is mostly why I attended an extra amount of nights this year. It was nice seeing so many old faces/friend, seeing the community support the hard work of the kids who raised animals, partaking in a community event, enjoying live music, watching truck/tractor pulls, all of it.

2 -- walking tacos consumed

Oh, and these are funny too, pictures taken from the auction night. This was my first time experiencing the auction on this side of the fence, years ago I was one of the kiddos showing livestock. The Cattleman and his family goes in together to purchase some livestock at the auction. Primarily to support the children and the community. The resolution is poor, because I just took a screenshot on my phone, but I wanted to bookmark these to look back on.

a lamb!
& a hog!
