You gotta love the hair!

I've been trying to get a picture of Leo sticking his tongue out for several weeks now and I just can't manage it. Every time I pull out the camera he stops doing it. And the only two times that he kept going the camera batteries died. By the time I got new batteries in he was done, the little stinker. Any how, today I had the genius idea to take a video instead. (Took me long enough, huh?)

I love this picture because I think it makes him look like a little hoodlum!
These last two are just for comparison. Look how much he's grown in two months!
We also saw tons of rabbits (if you've never seen a mohair rabbit you should do a google image search. They're hilarious!), sheep, huge chickens, really cool geese and some of the biggest and best looking cows I've ever seen. You can't really tell, but the guy in the picture below this is actually using a blow dryer on his cow. Don't worry, he used hair spray too. I guess you wouldn't want any fly-aways on your (hopefully) prize winning cow's back. It's just that I have a hard time justifying putting so much effort into the physical appearance of supper.
Speaking of supper . . . the Utah Cattleman's Association was having a barbecue. I can't even tell you how good these sandwiches were. You see that grin on Ty's face? It's the steak. No, the onion roll. No, the steak. He can't decide. And the best part? It was the cheapest food at the fair! So instead of paying $4 for a corn dog we paid $5 for a steak sandwich and a bag of chips. Hooray!
We also watched the guy in the background of this picture carve an eagle out of a log with a chain saw. It was really cool but people kept walking up and standing right in front of us. I'm not kidding, at least five different groups of people did it. As soon as we would move over so we could see around the jerks who blocked our view another group of jerks would come on up and block our view again. At one point Ty said, "Should we just go stand in front of them all?" To which I replied, "No, because that would be rude." I swear, I don't know what happened to common courtesy, but there's a shortage of it in the world.
Any how, our camera batteries died about two hours into our adventure, so that's all we got. We also saw a mental illusionist, a reptile show and ended the day with a peanut covered caramel apple. Yeah, we're going again next year.

1 package of ready-made cinnamon rolls with icing (8 or 9 rolls)
20 oz can of fruit pie filling (cherry is really good)
1/4 cup butter softened
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Place the cinnamon rolls in a greased 9 x 13 pan. Spread the pie filling evenly over and between the rolls. Mix together butter, flour, brown sugar and pecans and sprinkle on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 - 50 minutes and top with cinnamon roll icing while still warm.
It's seriously delicious. Seriously.

And we've been caught outside in the rain twice in the past two days. It just looks like the perfect weather for taking a walk and then, just when you get far enough away from the house to really get soaked if it starts raining, it starts raining. Sunday we were about four blocks away when it started sprinkling. By the time we got home it was raining bigger drops than I'd ever seen! Ty shoved Leo under his shirt and we ran for it. Today it was just me and Leo but it was just as wet. I'm not ready for winter yet. :( Good thing I'm going to AZ in two weeks. Sunshine, here I come!
