Weekend Update: Been herded anywhere lately?

Where can you see a life-size butter sculpture, an amazing gingerbread house, a bull with an 8 1/2 foot rack, and an alpaca.  That would be the Pennsylvania Farm Show, of course.

The hubby and the kids and I went on opening day and damn it was crowded.

Apparently, everyone in PA thought it was a good thing to do on a freezing cold day.

Can you believe this is butter?

The kids had an opportunity to try their hand at butter carving and the results were not as stunning.

This gingerbread house is made by a 12-14 year old.
I think he/she has a future in achitecture.
Click on the pic and see how elaborate it is.  There are candles in the windows!


Are you getting a headache?

And for the record...yes...they do spit!!!

What did you do this weekend??

So they do spit? I'll have to tell my sons about that one. They always ask me at the zoo. I hope you weren't in the line of fire.

That's a fancy house for a 12 year to construct. I'm impressed.

Why do farm shows and state fairs always have a butter sculpture? Inquiring minds want to know.

Close by town here there are several buffalo herds - the meanest and fasted critters around. They ran the longhorns off many years ago.
