Fun! Fun! Fun! at the State Fair!

We were able to go to the State Fair on Saturday the 19th and had a lot of fun!

We saw a lot of animals - this one isn't a very good picture, but it's me and Sierra by a baby calf that was so darn cute! I love cows!

And this was a HUGE cow, over 3000 lbs. It was kinda scary standing next to it! I thought it would move over and bump us. But he was very friendly. Look at those horns!! I wouldn't want to be chased by that. I love this picture.

We went to see the bunnies and chickens and they had one fluffy bunny right out on the table and it was soooo soft! I loved petting its fur. (Don't know if it was a boy or girl, so it stays an "it") It was such a cute bunny! And it was for sale! Too bad, Juan's not an animal lover like me. We did not end up bringing it home. hehe

I tried to get some good pictures of Sierra petting it, she was funny! She grabbed its fur and its ears, poor thing. lol

Then, me and Sierra did "Little Hands on the Farm" and she got a stamp on her hand, as well as an apron and a basket.

We did many chores on the farm, including, picking up corn and feeding and milking the fake cow, picked a fake fruit off a fake tree, took an egg from the fake chicken's nest, and she earned herself one fake dollar, with which she could buy one REAL item with her fake dollar.

(You can kind of see the fake green dollar in Sierra's hand if you look closely.) Sierra was such a sweetie, she bought a granola bar for me and daddy to share. Yum! It was a fun hands-on experience! I think next year, she'll have even more fun when she understands more.

Finally, at the end of the day, Juan let me go on the Super Fun Big Slide. I made Juan take pictures. I'm on the second bump in the white shirt, look closely.

It was very fun!! Next year, I'll be able to take Sierra with me! (and maybe convince Juan to go too. I don't know, I'm just a big kid I guess, I like stuff like that.)

We had so much fun that Sierra zonked right out, as usual.

All in all, it was a fun fun day!! Here's a short video of one of the fun kids' rides.

What is that ride? Barn in a Tornado or Barn Barf O'Rama! That's what I want to do just watching it!! The slide looks fun though!
