OK, so I am not really in love with the man who delivers packages to my house. I am in love with RILEY. Is he not the cutest UPS man that you have ever seen. He picked out this costume and Auntie Caren found it for him. He has a Halloween party today at preschool so he gets to wear it on 2 days. Don't think that has not made him the happiest boy in our house today. His brothers are a little jealous that he gets to wear his costume today and they don't. I will of course take more pix of the three of them in costumes trick or treating tomorrow but I could not resist taking a picture of Riley this morning. Now I'm sure you can see why I love my UPS man.

Notice the great award displayers that we hired for the occasion? They work cheap. We did have to settle the dispute over who would hold the "big" one (the banner) and who would hold the ribbons. Lets just say it took a mom intervention to settle it.
As soon as the show was over for the 4-Hers it was time for the PEEWEE showman to take a crack at it. Peewee is for little ones who can't be in 4-H yet but want to show anyway. Both Conner and Riley have been doing peewee since they were a year old.
Conner is now old enough that he can show without the help of an older 4-H member. See the look of concentration on his face. I can see the time spent watching Ty, Holly and Josh has not been lost on him.
It was a great show, run by good people. The kids had a great time and can't wait for next year. I for one want a few weeks of sleep before I try this again. The boys and I came home Monday morning. After being at the fair for 5 days, we were all very tired. Riley decided he had had enough and this is what happened.
There is nothing as exciting as driving home from the valley with a tired screaming 3 year old. For those of you who have not yet tried it, you don't know what you are missing. It is an experience all teenagers should have to endure. I am confident it would put an end to teen pregnancy. All in all we had a great time and other than a few minor incidents (melt downs) it was a smooth show.
