Arizona State Fair


A couple of Fridays ago, we went to the AZ State Fair with our friends the Reese's. We had a lot of fun showing the kids the animals and exhibits.
We love "Uncle Kunkle's," an exhibit that is filled with all sorts of fun farm-themed things for kids to do. They loved the buckin' bronco and milking the cow.


Another favorite was riding the elephant. I thought it was pretty cool, and fun to touch the elephant's tough skin and extremely course hair. Our ride lasted a little longer than the usual, because our elephant stopped to use the bathroom. Let me tell you, it was so stinky! We all thought it was pretty funny.

Sareny's absolute favorite is the ginormous slide. She went down once with me, and then we went to a slightly smaller slide that Isaac was tall enough to ride, and he rode with Daddy. Sareny had to go down by herself. She was crying the whole way down, even though Keith went down at the same time and held her hand. Isaac loved it though!

We also saw a grizzly bear show and enjoyed some classic funnel cake before heading home. Can't wait til next year!
