State Fair 2012

The boys and I went to the State Fair yesterday.  Our reason for going to the fair was a very special one.  My nephew, Kade, was being awarded the Governor’s Lifesaving Award.  He was nominated by Heath and Tanya after he helped to save Heath’s life when he was being electrocuted by a jackhammer.  Kade was there with him and went and unplugged the jackhammer from the house and called 911.  Kade was the youngest recipient of the award. There were 17 other people that received the award and it was neat to hear all of the other stories.  After the award ceremony we walked around the fair for a while and enjoyed some of the fair food 🙂

We visited Anita and her cows. Anita is a nurse that works with Mom and a good friend.

Jaxson had to do this pig puzzle.
