PA Farm Show

It's that time of year again, what my sister and I joke to be the most wonderful time of all, PA Farm Show! If you're not familiar with the farm show, I shared a little bit it about this time last year, and the website is also pretty informative. If you haven't been before, I highly recommend you make the trip. Yes, it stinks, especially to people going for their first time. But the food, oh the food, it's all so good and there isn't a thing I've tried there and haven't loved (I don't go too far out of my comfort zone though). I also love seeing all of the animals, this year there were signs (I forgot to photograph) that said "Livestock is for viewing, not touching" which, of course, only made me want to touch them more.
I make a point to go with Megan, one of my best friends from high school, every year and we always have a blast. I hope she knows we're still continuing the tradition when we move. We don't see each other often so I don't know what I would do without our annual trip! Special thanks to her for capturing the pictures of me.
I had the hardest time narrowing down the hundreds of pictures from the two days I was there, it's so hard to capture the essence of the Farm Show without going for yourself, but there are also tons of pictures on Instagram and Twitter that you can follow using the hashtag #PAFarmShow. I'm sure you'll notice the overwhelming cow theme below.. I don't know what it was with me and cows this year, but I took a lot of pictures of and with them (and even had a longhorn sweatshirt on the first day).  
The pigs were killing me, they were too cute and reminded me so much of  Lily.
"So, you come here often?"
I love the chicks, especially when they stumble around trying to get used to their bodies outside of the egg and follow your finger around and peck at it. too cute.
There was a serious stare-down going on with these two.
As a future art educator, color-coordinating holds a spot near and dear in my heart. 
The butter sculpture is always amazing and has such great detail (this picture doesn't do it justice). 
In case you were wondering, it used to be completely constructed out of butter but now they use wood/ metal armatures. When the Farm Show is over, the butter is converted into an energy source to help power a local farm. 
Now for the cows-I swear I don't remember there being cows this tall in the past but they sure make me feel short. 
Then I started trying to pet the cows and this girl was not having it. Her eyes got huge and she started stepping on her neighbor- message received.
Then I walked up to this beaut and she was mooing and sliding to the side so I moved along. 
Then, this sweet girl (with awesome gold caps) had no problem with me petting her so I took full advantage. 
I was going to pet her neighbor, but she was laying in her poop.. I couldn't get over it. 
As horrible as it is, after we went and saw the adorable animals, we went and got the most delicious bacon. This is Megan's I love bacon face.
My I love bacon face was too derpy so here's me taking my first bite instead.
The next day I went back with my family and we (Bailey, dad and I) had even more bacon. I swear, it's the perfect amount of crispy and chewy and so flavorful. I'm salivating thinking about it. 
Naturally, I took more pictures of cows.
This one in particular was mooing and I was "mooing" back and she did not find me amusing.
