here is last years post about it, it explains more in depth what they have to do to get 'paid'. with the dollar that fletcher earned, he chose fruit snacks.
the big bull is always a must see. i think this dude has been the biggest for quite a few years now. we also went to see the big pig, but too many people to get a picture.
we ended our first trip at the petting zoo. we went to it last year and the set up was different. i didn't really care for it this year, because you had to wait in line instead of just going and getting it over with. they also had pony rides in this area which little boy was thrilled about...until i attempted to put him on the horse. i'll just say that we got our money back. it wasn't pretty. maybe next year he'll change his mind.
he tried so hard to catch them. look at that determined face.
baby b even liked them.
the new thing on a stick was fried butter. the first time i heard that, i was pretty grossed out. i wasn't sure how they would do that because it would melt all over. the first night adam and i worked, we heard people talking about it and saying how it tasted like a cinnamon roll. over the week, we continued to hear about how good it was, so, i decided that we needed to try it.
nitro ice cream, and while we're there, we get a cup to share. brynlee seemed to like it, but fletcher was too tired to even try it.
can't wait for next years fair...only 342 days until opening ceremonies.
