This business of having to come downstairs to access the computer is taking some getting used to. I know logically I should've given you an update on my cake and the town fair in general before posting again. But I think we all know that logic isn't really what drives me.
The town fair was a smash, as always. And my cake won first prize! Here's a shot again, in case you missed the excitement the first time around:
I also entered these:
The toy came first, the necklace third. I entered muffins (I ate those before thinking to take a photo. They looked like muffins. Use your imagination.). They came third and won me a tub of honey.
It would be important to note at this point--before you get too impressed with my seemingly unending ability to win, win, win--that this is a rather small town fair. There were, on average, three entries per category. So coming third really isn't as impressive as it might seem. But I take my wins where I can get them! More importantly, I had fun.
Someone else who had fun was Firstborn. He designed a promotional poster at school for the fair and came third in that category. And he was extremely pleased to come first in his age group with his original lego creation:
Ignore the weird hairdo. He whipped his hat off seconds before I snapped the shot, realizing that none of the famous artists in history had their portraits done wearing a Vancouver ball cap.
We both had our pictures taken--me with my cake, him with his lego--for the local paper. I'll keep you informed when and if those photos are published and we find ourselves famous.
I'm practicing my autograph, just in case.
