State Fair 2013

Even though we are still a little jet lagged we had to visit the State Fair before it closed.  The weather had really cooled off since we left. I wore a cashmere sweater, and hoped for the best.  It was nice to walk around without carrying any bags--no camera (just the phone), nothing.

As always, my favorite part of the fair was the petting barn. This year I got to pet the zebras--they are usually far back in a corner because they bite.  I also got to pet the baby kangaroo, some Brahman calves, and a lot of other animals.
Fried guacamole--our favorite.  The only other fried food we had was a fried blackberry pie.
A sheep being shorn.  We saw lots of sheep, bunnies, and horses.
We went and saw the bird show.  Apparently the show is there every year, but we have never seen it.  They had cool hawks, an owl, and other birds.  One bird even sang Old MacDonald.  It was freaky.
Free ice cream!
I liked this goat asleep in the red tire.  Goats are silly.  A chicken was standing on top of a goat, which is funny because goats are usually the ones standing on something.
I don't know what this thing was called.  It had conical horns.  The freaky thing was that the horns were very warm.
