The County Fair, Y'all!

Last week we went to check out the county fair.  My husband grew up out the outskirts of town on some land and he was totally a "country boy" and I was TOTALLY a city suburban girl.  :)  He was in 4H, I didn't even know what 4H was!  He OWNED ducks and lambs.  I owned dogs.  Needless to say, he pretty much lived at the fair every summer.  I had never been!  I went to the state fair when I was younger, but never the county fair.  I'll be honest, it's not my cup of tea.  Now that we have Carson though, it's a lot more fun!  He loved seeing all of the animals!  It was 90-95 degrees the evening we went!

Here are some pictures from our dirt-filled farmy evening at the fair. :)
Carson tried one of Daddy's fair fries!  (Yuck)

Checking out a goat!

This bunny was bigger than our dogs!

All I see is DIRT but I'm trying to get over my OCD....

Checking out some cute ducks!

Rosie the horse

These chickens were at a "petting zoo area"

14 day old calf named Norman! :)

Checking out the cows.

Deciding if he wants to pet the lamb or not.

This pony was so cute!

Carson, SWAT officer. ;)
If the fair was every weekend, I would hate it.  Since it's one week a year, I can handle it.  It was a great place to practice Carson's animal names and sounds!

  1. I have a love hate relationship with the fair. I think it's so gross, but so fun. When I was younger I used to live at the fair (with friends because we all know I'm not a 4-h type of girl), but it's just so dirty and stinky. haha! Glad you had a good time with Carson!
