a night at the fair

Last weekend we went with some of Adam's siblings to the Davis County Fair...we had a great time with Sharla, Luke, Becca, and little Samson :) It was definitely a smaller fair, but nonetheless filled with all sorts of fair goodness.

BALLOONS:
We had 2 very happy boys
CARNIVAL RIDES:
We didn't ride any, but we did see the cutest old couple ever enjoy themselves on the "tornado"...made my night :) Oh and the bubble-boy game looked pretty awe-some.
BUNNY BARN:
Brooks loved pointing and saying "doggy! doggy!" at all the cute bunnies...that's what he's decided to call any and all animals lately.
FAIR FOOD:
Snow cones, barbecue pork sandwiches, bratwurst, and all sorts of fried goods (we tried fried oreos for the first time...and they exceeded my expectations. Mmmmmm!
RODEO:
There were times when Brooks was cheering louder than all of us combined! ha! I can't get enough of the barrel races and the little mutton busters! And there's always a *sigh* of relief after the bull riders have all done their rides and everyone is safe :)

And it gets me excited for the Utah State Fair next month!!

I love fairs! Can you believe I've never been to the Utah State Fair?!

OMG Adam and I have been talking about going to the fair for weeks! Everything looks like it was so fun!
mmmmmm snow cones and fried oreos are what I'm excited for...Adam just wants a massive corndog.
And how cute that Brooks calls the animals "doggy!"--can't wait to hear all the new words he's learning...little smarty pants.
And I've never been to the rodeo! Surprising, coming from a hick area of PA. I just always felt like I wanted to be as far away from being blue-collar as possible, but now that we live here I think I'm ready. Looks awesome!
Love you, miss you, nothing new.

What beautiful memories!

Small fairs are kind of nice.

Old couples rock! I want to be the kind of old couple (with my honey of course) that still holds hands because they want to not because they need to balance their center of gravity!

Fried oreos? Hmmm... don't knock 'em before you try them huh?

This is such a cute post!

Aww! Doggies, bunnies, it's all the same to a little guy. ;) Hudson calls almost every color green...Ha!

I love me some fun at the fair, and of course, I also love Fried Oreos and Snow Cones and many many more delicious fair snacks! It's pretty hard not to love the fried oreos....gosh, they're good. We have a wing shack down the road from our house, and they make those...every time Will gets wings for football watching, I make him bring me oreos. HA! Probably not so good for my figure. ;)

I LOVE a good rodeo!! I love that Brooks was cheering loudly. What a sweetie. Hudson hasn't been to one yet, & I just dying to take him. He loves "horseys".

p.s. shirtless Brooks is toooooooo cute.
