Pigs and Bonsai

Here are some more highlights from my stroll around the barn the other day at the Alaska State Fair.

There is something super cute about baby pigs.  Can't explain it.  It just is.  The mama pigs, not so much.

And a different set (litter?)

The bonsai display was amazing, as always.

I forgot to take a picture of the unique lunch item we found yesterday.  It was called a Chicken Parfait and not only was it clever, it was quite yummy.  In a clear plastic cup, make layers of mashed potatoes and shredded barbequed chicken.  Top it with a cherry tomato and barbeque sauce!

Later in the day --  I guess you could call it dinner -- we had the most fabulous crab bisque and shared an order of coconut crab patties.  Delicious!

Keith has been really into bonsai lately! He's purchased two bonsais... one is a ficus, like the second one you took a picture of! His first one is a Serissa. I love the forest one! So cool...
