State Fair

The Utah State Fair, another Salazar Family Tradition, and this year it was great. We were there for 6 hours!!! We usually just spend a couple of hours. But it was unusually good this year. Here is last years post.

This is Aaron going over the rules with the kids. You may notice that we have this picture in nearly all of our 'tradition' posts, well at least the ones when it is somewhere really big with lots of people. Teague is upset because we told him that he had to wait until we leave to get a prize, notice the cheap stuff in the background. We also told him that he may find something that he liked better as we got going.

Every year they have the 'Butter Cow,' It's disgusting I know, but it is a tradition, this year it was pretty cute.

There was a Tiger show, Piper was so excited! Tigers are her favorite animals, so while Piper and Aaron saved some places, Teague and I went to get some grub. Teague was being a little turd, so we ended up with French Fries, Curled Taters a Dr. Pepper and a Coke. Aaron and Piper got some chicken at a booth that was near the Tiger show.

The show was short, sweet and to the point. We really enjoyed it....especially Piper.

Of course we looked at all the animals, but I am only posting one picture of the Mama Pig and her piglets.

I took this picture because I just don't get it. I'm sorry, but that looks so disgusting!!!

After being there forever, we left. This is a picture of the kidlets and their prizes. Amazingly enough, six hours after we got there (and about every 5 minutes in between) Teague reminded us of the prize he wanted. A small box of blocks that was ONE DOLLAR. Piper got a Light Sword, Aaron got a skull ring, but when you open it, there is a clock....and I got a fabulous purse from Miche Bags.

And, we will go again next year.

The Fair!!! That is seriously one of my only things I REALLY miss about Utah. You should read my mom's and my sisters' blogs...all about the fair. Every year. I love the commercial booths and the baby pigs and the yellow slide. Waaah. I should come to Utah next year! For some reason I remember hanging out with you at the fair in 6th grade and going to all of the radio station booths for their stickers and free stuff. I remember the boat for KBER. Do you?
