Kiddie Tractor Pull Champion in the house....

After our exciting morning I took the girls to the Rock Island County Fair. Hallie wanted to enter the Kiddie Tractor Pull contest... so of course Reese did, too! Reese did a great job {besides the fact she couldn't reach the pedals!!} She got a participation ribbon and was very excited! Next up... Hallie and the 4 year olds. After the third round of adding weights she was the only one to make it a "full pull". {She was concentrating hard!!} So Hallie was awarded the blue ribbon and TROPHY!! Yipee Hallie!! The lady running it brought over another trophy she said was last years if Reese wanted it! These two girls didn't sit their trophies down the whole day! Both of them have gotten them back out to celebrate today!!

While we were at the fair we checked out all of the animals... the baby barn was their favorite. Hallie even found "Wilbur" in the pig barn! We had a great time! Sure wish Grandpa and Grandma Bolles had their farm... these girls would be in heaven!
Our day didn't stop there...
Hallie had her first night of T-Ball! She is on the A's. It should be a fun season! They rec department has teamed up with the River Bandits {a team like the I-Cubs} so they get to have their pictures taken on the "big" field. They also have a special night that the kids and their families are invited to a game and they get to warm-up with the team and stand on the field for the National Anthem. But aside from all that fun... it is soooo fun (and funny) to see these kids with the giant batting helmets on! :) I am sure I will be posting lots more once her games start!


Our night ended with a MUCH NEEDED bubble bath!

5 friends had to say...:
