Fargo Fair

July 14, 2010

We went to the Red River Valley Fair yesterday.

I asked this guy to harass Jamie and Emily so I could capture the moment.  hehe.

We gorged on deep fried foods: cheese curds, mini donuts, and corn dog.  And lemonade.  Emily tried to show Isaac how to drink from the straw.  He didn’t get it.

Then she told him that if he couldn’t drink from a straw he was too much of a baby to get any lemonade.  Poor guy.

Now for the highlight of the fair.  There was a petting zoo!  You could buy carrots to feed the animals! They had a ZEBRA!!

That’s my hand.

I was VERY excited.

I’m not sure who that girl is in all my pictures, but she obviously thinks I’m crazy. 

Isaac really wasn’t very impressed by the petting zoo.  Here’s what he was doing while I was running wild feeding every single animal at the zoo.

Then I fed a camel.

Then I fed a donkey.

Then I fed some deer.  Isaac is still uninterested.  I’m not sure if he’s really my kid if he doesn’t love petting zoos!!

Jamie pointed out that my behavior at the petting zoo reminded him of the Mr. Whippy incident in a campground in New Zealand.  You know, where I ran as fast as I could to the ice cream truck to beat out all the little kids…

Then we took a picture of Jamie and Isaac in a giant John Deer tractor tire.
