The State Fair (A Picture Story)

Yesterday we spent the day at the Ohio State Fair. Dh and the girls had never been to the state fair and I am pretty sure it has been 15 or more years since I was there.

We started the day waiting in line for tickets. Look at the easy to spot bright pink shirts on the girls... Thanks for those Grandma.

We saw an 1800 lb butter cow (not pictured is the butter calf next door).

We saw lots of animals; cows, goats, llamas, zebras, a 150 year old tortoise, and many more including dh's perennial favorite-- the pigs. (Aunt Missy supplied the Tootsie Roll Pops)

Bophie has a particularly sensitive nose and didn't like the smells. This is the way she plugs her nose.

The girls scaled a giant ear of corn, almost making it to the top before looking down and getting a little scared. I think they get their fear of heights from me.
They fished in the Youth Pond and Bear made the biggest catch of the day with a 14 inch catfish.

They went kayaking in the rain. Hopefully this was good practice for the canoeing we hope to do next weekend.

JuJu got to hang out with Aunt Missy and eat goldfish to her heart's content as she watched her sisters have fun in the water.

By the end of the day, we all wished we could just crash like Bophie and let someone else push us around.
