The County Fair!

We went with Papa and Grandma Hart to the county fair Saturday afternoon. We had a blast! We . . .
. . . petted sheep and marveled at some VERY large pigs.

. . . petted the cows.

(This one was Connor's favorite . . . it had very red hair. It is hard to tell in the picture.)

. . . saw sharks! I am not sure how this fit into Maricopa county, but it was super cool. There was a large tank and four sharks swimming around. They even had a little show that the boys and Papa attended. Fun!
. . . watched a magic show. And, Connor got to particpate! What a hoot!! He did great and had so much fun. We laughed so hard when the "magician" was doing a trick to make coins appear in Connor's pocket. The guy said that he was going to send the coins to land on Connor's shoe, make the coins go up his shorts, into his underwear, and to his pocket. Connor got a funny look and started feeling his shorts and underpants for the coins. SO FUNNY! He was so brave and such a good sport.

. . . played on a tractor. Kyndall LOVED this!!

. . . gathered vegetables and fruit from a pretend farm.

. . . milked a wooden cow with Papa! Connor has always said that Papa needed to teach him how to milk a cow. It is funny since we don't think he realized that Papa grew up on a dairy and is truly the most qualified teacher for this skill. Maybe Connor just had a little intuition?!?

There was so much to do and learn! Jon and I had as much fun as the kids. Don't you love family days like that?!?! We do!!!

Good 'ol fashioned fun! It looked like a fabulous (and educational)family outing. Did you get to take home any of the food you harvested?

Our preschooler went on a field trip there last week, she told us about the sharks and now I guess I'll have to believe her! Sharks at the Maricopa County Fair, wacky. It looks like you guys had a great time :)
