Washington County Fair


It's that time of the year again, back to school means back to the fair! The Washington County Fair is a well known event held in Northwest Arkansas, like many other fairs, you've got your yummy food, fun rides, arts and crafts, tractors, and lot's of animals. Growing up, my family use to show cows. This was a great way to spend time together as a family (lot's of time). If you've never shown before, then you don't realize how much time and energy showing an animal takes! Well, for us anyways. I'm sure there are the ones who do nothing to prepare for the fair, show up, show their animal and go home. But, if we were going to do it, then we were going to give it our best shot and go all out. GO BIG OR GO HOME.... right? = ) I can remember as a child, getting up before the roosters would even crow, probably about the time I GO to be now. Head over to Tontitown (Red Oak Estates) and start the fun and exciting process. We would jam to John Michael Montgomery & Garth Brooks and do our best to wake up, because we had a fun and exciting week ahead of us.

As for the carnival rides, we were never allowed to step foot on a ride as long as the fair was going on. = ( I remember always being so heart broken when all my friends (even fellow show friends) would go ride, but I never could! But on Saturday morning, when the fair was over, us kids would ride as many rides as we wanted, as fast as we wanted, because there were no silly lines. See, my parents knew what they were doing after all!

Here are some random pictures from the good ole' days... ENJOY
*Oh did I mention, if you love fair food, then you should try living there for a week, and having to eat it everyday, you will learn to like other stuff better.... LOL























That was the year I was born.... so mom must have been 8 months pregnant with me... wow! What a trooper!


Yes..... that's me! Who needs a pack-n-play when you got feeds sacks?!?!
