Day at the Fair

A few months ago, right after Thanksgiving, we visited the Broward County Fair, and had a lot of fun, so when we heard that the South Florida Fair was a bigger and better fair and that this was its last weekend, we decided we wanted to go visit. It was in West Palm Beach, so a bit of a drive for us, but totally worth it!

We had a beautiful day today with clear skies and comfortable temps, and the fair was wonderful -- several barns full of animals, a big petting zoo, a HUGE midway, and all kinds of fun shows. We had a great time, so here are a few pics of some of the highlights.

Here's Norah practically kissing a baby goat. She luh-ved the petting zoo barn; we must've fed those goats a pound of carrots! The petting zoo barn also had non-traditional fair animals, like a zebra, a tortoise, ostriches, and some kangaroos! Below is Norah feeding one of the kangas.
I wish we had also brought the video camera because each time Norah fed an animal, and they scarfed up the carrots, she'd say "yum, yum!" It was so dang cute!
Aside from getting to pet a huge variety of animals, Norah also got to go on a pony ride. Her expression in the pic below seems to suggest that she's scared, but really I just snapped her mid-"wow."
We also got to see a great dog show, Norah played some midway games and won herself a little stuffed bear, and of course, no trip to a fair would be complete without consuming a plethora of fried food. Here's Norah enjoying her funnel cake.

So, all in all it was a great Saturday!

Looks like a ton of fun. There is nothing like a fair through the eyes of a child. Cute pictures!

She's adorable! I love it!

And thanks for the Clapp recommendation. He's on the reading list she gave us. I plan to pick it up ASAP.

She is just way too cute! Frame the picture of her with the baby goat, that is a keeper!

I love her on the pony too. Nothing like a day at the fair.

Shouldn't there be a picture of some meat on a stick? Obviously Norah is as good a subject though.

Fairs are always great fun. Glad Norah liked it so much. My favorite part is seeing the animals too.

That pic of her and the goat is totally priceless. Like the kind of thing you submit to some magazine or something. Totally cute ;)
