County Fair

We went to the Salt Lake County Fair last week. It was a little bit smaller than I had imagined it would be, but there were a LOT of animals. Most surprising, was the large collection of Australian animals, who ever heard of kangaroos at a fair? 

First we walked around and looked at all of the caged 4-H animals. Ben wasn't too interested, but who is interested in huge pigs with flies swarming them, and gigantic cows that are soon to be sold off to the highest bidder, slaughtered, and stored in a garage freezer for the next year. Gross! 

He warmed up to the animals by the time we got to the petting zoo. The goats were really friendly and came right up in Ben's face, which scared him a little. Please ignore the fact that my child has no shoes on and is standing in a pen full of animals and their "droppings." We forgot shoes, and we washed his feet off immediately, okay!

Love the pink tractor. 

It was a great day on the farm!
