county fair


Well, we got to spend the afternoon at the fair last week...some little people had been looking forward to it all year long. Some bigger people, not so much =)

But we all had a good time.




First of all we saw this pirate with his incredibly well-trained birds. He was pretty cool...




so was his ship





Then it was on to the animal barns



Talk about exciting...who doesn't want to see chickens in cages???




I think this was the cutest duck I've ever seen



The pig barn was quite an experience...I don't think John knew what to think =)




this is kinda sweet and disturbing at the same time




And we braved one of the cow barns...
We actually skipped most of the animal barns...there were SO many.

And we're such animal people to begin with =)






But this calf...is almost enough to make me want to work on a dairy farm. Almost.





the mandatory sibling picture =)


you know how it is...despite the crowds, you find an empty spot and yell: "Quick guys, smile before anyone walks over here!!!" Oh wait, that's just us? Am I the only one who doesn't like an audience...?




The rides were the main attraction for two certain guys I know...





Except for the Ferris Wheel (coolest ride ever), I could really do without carnival rides.




But I didn't. I went on this...THE HAMMER...with Andrew.





Andrew loved it. Me...I'd rather not say.





There's something so thrilling about a giant slide.



If anyone knows what it is, please tell me.





And last of all, the amazing Ferris Wheel. Yes, I love this ride.



They were too cute



as always





As if we weren't already having enough fun, Dad bought us ice-cream cones.




And it was possibly the best cone I've ever had.





It was such a fun day...I'm so glad we made time to go. For the little guys =)

Wow, I so wish I could go down a slide like that!!! It looks therapeutic! And that ice cream looks absolutely crazy good!
