Baby Gray has not had the luxury (read: we don’t have enough hours in a day) to spend as much time in the country as Mr. Gray and I would really like. Luckily, he got a taste of being a country kid this weekend at T & L’s stock show. Both boys show hogs, so we set off Saturday morning to be there.
Right off the bat, he wasn’t having anything to do with his boots, so he wore his TOMS instead. He wasn’t too sure what to think when we first arrived. Once he figured out that the dirt and dust was part of the experience, though, he was sold.
He stationed himself on the ledge of the show barn with his animal crackers and loved it. He could hide behind Miss Mollie’s stroller, practice the step on and off the ledge, and see all the passers by. Toward the end of the morning, he even got a bit interested in what was going on in the show ring.
Maybe there was an incident in which his sippy cup ended up in the show ring. Maybe not. He definitely didn’t have his best morning, but once he settled in, he had fun.
