Utah State Fair
The other night we went to the Utah State Fair. It was rainy at the beginning of the day so we wondered if we were going to need to bring umbrellas...but the skies cleared and we were even lucky enough to see a gorgeous rainbow! I wish Brooks would have been awake for that, but Mr. Sleepyhead fell dozed off on the way there, so he was in dreamland the first half. Which meant that Ava only had to share her corn dog with Mom and Dad. ;) On our walk to the animals, Adam stopped to show his animal strength and do 20 pull-ups to get a shirt from the Marines. Ava and I had fun cheering for Daddy! Brooks woke up just in time to see the goats, and goodness he LOVED them! The goats were his favorite, and the chickens were Ava's favorite. Adam and I would crack up when she'd say, "Bock! Bock!" at the roosters and hens. We grabbed some fresh lemonade and cinnamon pecans on the way out...the latter of which we put on top of vanilla ice cream when we got home. YUM. We ended the night by on the giant "Fun Slide"...what a hoot! You can watch a little video of Ava and I on the giant slide here. Even though he face didn't show it, she loved it and wanted to go again. :) Sadly Brooks wasn't a fan...that boy is pretty fickle when it comes to "thrill" rides. ;) All in all, such a fun night and a good way to bid summer farewell!
