McHenry County Fair

McHenry County Fair...
here we come!!
* Woodstock, Illinois * July 30th - August 3rd * 

We had a great time at Stephenson County Fair a couple weeks ago and we're thrilled to be heading north again. This time to Woodstock. If you're in the area, we'd love to see you! Stop by and say hi to the boys.

Mid-afternoon is sometimes a slow time of day for us at the fair. If it is, this is how you'll see Toby and Fonzie - dozing. Even napping they're adorable, and so angelic looking. Don't let that fool you though! Toby can go from sleeping to jumping around and playing with only a blink or two of his eyes. You never know what that little guy is gonna do next.

After McHenry County Fair is the St. Clair Fair in Belleville. We're looking forward to seeing our friends there.

Hope to see you at the fair!!

February's Winners

Each weekend we hold a drawing for a bag of monkey toys and at the end of the month we give away a poster print (13x19) of the winner with the monkey.

Our weekend winners are:
  • Weekend of February 16 & 17... Rose Reimer.
  • Weekend of February 23 & 24... Daniel Miller.
The poster print winner is Angela Wells.


Winners, you have until the end of March to pick up your goodies.

Daniel works in the kitchen at Traders World and Toby and Fonzie love him. He comes to visit them often and when he had his picture done with Toby, he entered the drawing, like almost everyone does. Monday morning, I had one of the kids fish a winner out of the bowl of entries. She was disappointed because there was no contact info--it just said "kitchen".  It was fun telling her about Daniel and it will be even more fun telling Daniel when I see him on Saturday morning.

If you're at Traders World, be sure to stop by and shake Fonzie's hand and have your picture taken with Toby. Those who get a picture can enter the drawing for the bag of monkey toys AND the monthly drawing for the poster print with the monkey.

A Month at Traders World

Fonzie working and schmoozing with young and old alike.
It's hard to believe we've been at Traders World for a month already.

Well, in a way, I can believe it...I've been so busy cramming life into my four days at home that I'm having trouble keeping track of the days and getting everything done. But that's okay.

Traders World is a load of fun. Why wouldn't it be? I get to watch people see and interact with monkeys, some for the first time ever.

While Fonzie shakes people's hands, Toby gets to eat marshmallows on people's laps while I take pictures.

At least that's what he's supposed to be doing...

Toby loves pockets, especially hoodie pockets.

He's become quite adept at dipping into pockets, especially hoodie pockets. Often he finds the money they've pulled out for the picture. He thinks it's a pretty cool trick.

Snuggle Time

Our first day at Traders World  started with snow, making for a slow day at the market. It gave the little boys a few minutes to snuggle with Jim and Alex--a rare and welcome treat.
