Thursday Cody took off work and we went to the state fair. We knew it would be a long day and she would miss nap, but we thought it would be worth it. We usually get this day off school and get free tickets, so we have been going every year since we got married. We only missed last year because Harper was only 4 months old.
We had a great day. We walked around all the pavilions and the car shows. I couldn't find Cody for awhile, but it seems he was spending some time looking at some motorcycles. Funny, right? There wasn't really any new gadget this year. Same old shammies, vitamix blenders, and miracle blade knives. But Cody got to catch a cooking show and Harper loved seeing so many people everywhere.
Harper got to meet Big Tex. She was a little scared, but kept pointing at him and staring at how big he was. It seems that he had an electrical problem and burned down the next day. Poor guy! So we are glad we got this picture just in time.
Cody and Harper took a picture with The Dominator. It's a vehicle that is used on a reality show called Storm Chasers that Cody watches. These two guys run around in this Tahoe that they have made into this indestructible vehicle, chasing tornados and getting cool videos.
We got a corn dog, a fried cinnamon roll, and saw the dog show. All requirements for the fair. This year we added The Little Farmer to our list. Harper absolutely loved it! She got to pretend to be a farmer, feed chickens, milk a cow, plant and harvest vegetables, and ride a tractor. I'm not sure why this was so fun for her, but she just didn't want to leave. They even paid her for her "work" and she got to pick out a treat in their store (which I put back and picked out something more appropriate).
We had a great time at the fair and Harper loved being outside in the crowds all day. We were all so tired though that we literally laid around all evening. Until next year...
