Growing up in Minnesota, the State Fair was kind of a BIG DEAL, but this was the first time that I'd been since living in Utah. We had so much fun, spent too much money on terrible food, and someone who wasn't a baby had a tantrum... but more than anything - it got me excited for next year! This year was great, but next year will be even more fun as the boys get older.
Then we got to see and pet all the animals. It was really neat, since the boys have seen pictures of animals, but they'd never really seen goats, or pigs, or bunnies. They loved it!
Pretty much, the pigs were gross.
Then we decided to splurge... on PONY RIDES!
They were both really good at holding on and sitting still, and didn't want (or need) us to help them stay steady. They were sad when we left and Micah kept waving at the ponies after we left.
Overall, it was a really great day. Next year though, maybe we'll bring sandwhiches... that 6$ corndog doesn't look like much, because it wasn't. It was terrible!
And the lemonade wasn't too impressive either.
But the ponies did not disappoint. They were worth every penny.
