We saw goats, rabbits, cows, pigs, butterflies, and many other things. In the pig exhibit, a bunch of kids had tied a big toy spider to a string and occasionally would let it fall from the rafters. Teagan had a great time with the "big spider." He kept his on that toy. Even as we walked by he kept looking over his shoulder at it.
There was so much to do there. The kids got to go on some rides. Their favorite was the "Starship 4000." This ride entails entering a large enclosed circle and everybody standing in their own space then it starts to spin. The centrifugal force causes the person to stick to the wall. No matter how hard you try, you cannot move until the ride slows to a stop. To me it looked like a big barf trap. I waited patiently outside for the kids to finish their ride. Afterwards they played some games and then we went fishing in the pond. Teagan won a fishing pole. Jacinda caught a fish. McCabe was in his element (all he wants to do is fish every minute of the day). And Xadia, she was happy to be there. It was hot so after our day at the fair we stopped a McDonald's for an ice cold soda. Of course mom had ice water but to everyone else it was a real treat to have a soda.
Today we took a blueberry ride up the mountain. The leaves are starting to change colors so we went to explore the beauty. Not too much color change for the oaks and aspens, but the maples were looking beautiful. They were such vibrant reds and yellows. I just love this time of year. As we drove up the mountain it got cooler and the smell of pine and fresh wood consumed us. It was a lot of fun. We found a spot and had a little picnic and then went walking on the trail before it got too cold. Then we headed down the mountain and the sunset was stunning. We live in such a beautiful world. I love it!
