Blue ribbon sisters

Robinson sisters' cookies one of many things to check out at the Yamhill County Fair & Rodeo

You'll find all kinds of people at the Yamhill County Fair, which opened today on the fairgrounds in McMinnville.

Including plenty of winners.

I met a pair of sisters, Molly and Katie Robinson. They raced into the Leslie Lewis Pavillion eager to see the food exhibits -- especially the oatmeal cookies they had entered. 

"Look! A blue ribbon!" squealed Molly, 6. 

She and Katie, 4, said they were both so excited to have won. They showed the ribbon to their mom, Megan McCrossin, and everyone else in the vicinity.

The sisters worked together to bake their winning entry. Molly said they added chocolate chips to the oatmeal batter. "That's our favorite," she said.

Molly and Katie are so happy to be winners, they are already planning next year's fair entry. And not only will they enter -- they'll encourage their friends to enter, too.

To remid them, they plan to take that blue ribbon home and hang it in their room.

Be sure and look for the Robinson sisters' plate of cookies when you go to the fair.

The event continues through Saturday. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and younger -- or free to kids who arrive before 3 p.m.
