First we stopped by the Snow Cone concession:
|"Wait. That place over there has Hawaiian Shave Ice - what's the difference?"|
"About a dollar. Ha roo woo roo!"
For some reason, neither the Snow Cone place nor the Hawaiian Shave Ice place is open at 0700. I have no idea why not - we would have made it worth their while! Fortunately for us, Dad had our canteen, so we took a couple water breaks instead.
Cam checked out this place:
|"Who's ready for some barbecue?!?"|
They weren't open, either. We decided to check out the animals at the fair instead.
|"Hey, Mags! Check this out! Little horses!"|
|"Hello, little horsie!"|
They were pretty friendly!
We walked around a bit more and I saw these guys!
|"What the what?!!?"|
They are SHEEP! I've never seen sheep in real life before - just the ones who do mattress commercials on TV. They look a lot different in person. And wow, are they smelly! It was quite possibly the highlight of our trip to the fair/rodeo, as far as I was concerned!
Speaking of the rodeo, we walked over to where the rodeo stars hang out during the day next. Cam wanted her picture taken with this guy:
|"Hey, Mom! Take my picture with my new friend!"|
We are very good girls around horses and most of them really like us.
This guy was Mom's favorite:
I went over to see if any of these guys would like to meet me.
|"Greetings! I'm Polargold's Margaret Thatcher!"|
Horses always appreciate good manners. A couple of them came closer to me ...
|"Howdy, little pup!"|
"Would you like to be my friend?"
I figured since he came over to say "howdy" (that's what rodeo stars like him say), he'd like to be my friend. And so ...
He was a very nice horse!
Even though we didn't get to have Snow Cones, we did have a blast at the Fair and Rodeo! Thanks for letting us show you around!
