Yesterday I posted about the first 4-H entry day of non-perishable items. Fair Entry Day #2 was last Wednesday and that meant everything else went to the fair. This included 4-H perishable items (baking & flowers) and all open-class items.Yes, this is the back of my van before we left for the fair. We used two laundry baskets, a wicker basket, a box and a flat to get everything there. Plus you can not see the front of the van where Cara has a box of flowers between her feet to hold steady and each of the girls is holding vases of flowers. The morning of the fair is very hectic at our house trying to get everything ready at the last minute. Cara and Erica each had 5 more items to enter in 4-H. Cara entered a coffee cake, two recipe box files, marigolds and black-eyed Susan's. Erica entered rhubarb muffins, peanut butter cookies, a recipe box file, marigolds and black-eyed Susan's. Cara received 4 purples and 1 blue and Erica received 3 purples and 2 blues. They both took extra baked goods over to open class and entered an art project.

This photo is of the sewing prizes that Cara and Erica won at the fair. I would have posted this photo yesterday, but I spaced off that it was still on my camera. The girls had an excellent year at the fair, each receiving 12 purples and 3 blues. They each earned $35.00 in the 4-H part with a few extra dollars in the open class part. I am so proud of them!!!
