Our trip to the Fair was a fun one.
We arrived early just as everything was opening up in the morning and we left about 5pm when the crowds were getting too thick to maneuver.
All 3 of our kids behaved. Bubba and Roo were able to go off and explore the fair by themselves for 2 hours and do their own thing. We had designated meeting spots. Cell phones are worth their weight in gold, we were able to keep in contact. Wee One rode in his stroller when the crowds became thick, he did not seem to mind.
We watched a draft horse show. L, Wee One, and I were amazed at how beautiful and powerful the draft teams were. We visited with an old gentleman who was showing his team of Percherons. He let Wee One check out his horses in their decorative dress harness, and sit in his cart. Wee One was tickled and kept saying, “Scooter is too small” after he was around those big beauties.
Our first stop was the petting zoo. It was big this year. There was a giraffe, zebra, and a baby bison.
Wee One loved the pigs. It was the first time he ever touched a pig. He was amazed at it’s prickly hair. He said, “it poked me.”
The baby bison.
Best friend L and Wee One shared fries for breakfast/lunch.
BG’s version of bumpercars!
The reptile show was a big hit.
1.5 million dollar Ford concept truck. This truck was better than any limo I’ve ever seen.
Personally, I think spending that kind of $$ on a truck is crazy…..for anyone.
After the Fair we hit On The Border for some real food, we were starving and I was in dire need of a drink, a strong one.
Bubba always make dumb faces when he takes photos, he did that on purpose….why? not sure why but it irritates the hell outta me.
Today I am in recovery from our big Fair trip…..off to make another pot of coffee.
