My jelly won second place! BUT! In true fair style, I am stewing and plotting for next year, since the woman who beat me ALSO oversaw the open class competition! If that's not fraught, I don't know what is.
My downfall? As written on the back of my entry tag: "Bubbles." My jelly was much clearer and had a better color, but it also had bubbles.
Maia and John entered the coloring contest. Maia won first place in her age division, and got a huge beautiful blue rosette. She has been insufferable the last couple of days, announcing every once in awhile, "I won FIRST puh-LACE!"
John did not win anything. This was cause for some disappointment, but again in true fair style, he also is plotting for next year.
