*One more day to enter the GIVEAWAY! Winners will be chosen tomorrow!*
I'm FINALLY getting around to sharing about the fair.
Sadly I was not feeling the best and extremely cranky and frustrated so there are not a lot of pictures. Then I got mad at the husband for no good reason, really, and that also explains the lack of pictures.
This was the first time we attended the New Mexico State Fair. All in all it wasn't bad... but it wasn't as good as the Puyallup Fair in Washington. Then again, we didn't get to see a lot of it since we had a limited time frame.
We spent some time in the kids area and watched a little show, played with bubbles and some fun puzzle stuff. Then we walked down a main street and saw a giant horse character, went through the mini Route 66 display and ended up over in the Native American section where people were about to start a dance thing. They were taking too long to get things going and most of what was being said was in Navajo so we left to grab some (overpriced) food.
After eating we walked through a barn area where the kids went nuts over farm animals including puppies and kittens. After walking a bit more we ended up at the McDonald's Farm. In there the kids are given an apron, bucket and list of what to do/gather. The had to get an apple, look at a silo, check out a tractor, gather an egg, get some wool, milk a cow, sit on a "horse", get some veggies and then return it all. As a prize they got a popsicle. Once that was finished we went home. We didn't go on any rides, we didn't buy any souvenirs, we didn't walk through the pavilions of people selling things, or check out the 4-H barns or displays. Oh well.
