Then the group made a clover formation for a group picture. It is the 100 year anniversary of the 4H program in Wyoming.
This is what the shirts look like.
On the sleeve...
The cookoff itself took an hour, plus the time it takes to go and come back (they had that event at the high school), so overall it was about two hours, and by then my little people were beat. The five year old was telling me we needed to take a nap. So back to the hotel we went. The boys settled in for a good rest while the ten year old went to a workshop on rockets, and then to dinner.
At first he was a bit disappointed that he hadn't done any better than third.
His uncle sent this picture back, along with a cajun "AaaaaaaEeeeeeee" and a promise for a celebratory steak dinner when we get there this weekend.
I'm pretty proud of him. Third place at state in a competition he didn't really want to participate in to begin with (nerves). We will find out about the cookoff results at the awards ceremony after lunch Friday.
