The Fantastic Fair...and Rodeo!
Last week was the Cache County Fair. We took the kids to see the animals and excitement.
The money stays in the car so we don't spend it. Of course, Cooper slept right through it.
However, Cadence was awake and loving (most of) it. She wanted to see the animals, but NOT touch them.
We did get her to feed some baby goats and pet a rabbit.
The rodeo was starting while we were there and we took her to see all the horses and rodeo queens as they were leaving the arena(?). Cadence just wanted to keep watching and watching and watching. The decision was made that we could come back to "rodeo" tomorrow because 1. it was going to rain 2.we had no money 3.we didn't plan on watching the rodeo 4. the rodeo had already started.
Cadence loved the rodeo, music, horses and cows. She danced every time she heard music!!! Somehow she has learned to move her hips and "shake her booty" too well. I will not allow her to dance like that when she is twelve or older:) She will attract too many mischievious boys! I must admit that it is so cute right now! Cooper actually stayed awake for part of the night! When Cadence tells anybody about the rodeo, she bounces her head and arms to describe the horses and explains that the cows 'fall over.' We will definitely have to go again next year.
Towards the end of the rodeo, Cadence was getting a bit restless - as were we. So we walked over to the 'funnel cake' booth and talked to Bret, one of Chris' mission buddies whose family runs it - with plans to return for the bull riding. Bret gave us two funnel cakes! YUM! It was worth missing the bull riding for those fat-free desserts!
We love the county fair!!!
