Recently we went to the Utah State Fair.
I LOVE the fair.
The Freak Show, Prize winning pigs, rinky dink rides, deep-fried-everything, the different booths/boutiques, and ESPECIALLY the people watching. To think I thought the freaks came out of the woodwork at Lagoon!
This was Danny's first time EVER experiencing all the fun the Fair has to offer!
To think he went (GASP) 25 years without deep fried gator!!!
Yes. It's true. I HAD to buy the, "Alligator on a Stick."
I asked the robust woman in the trailer selling the strange delicatessen how good the gator on the stick really was.
She said, "Honey, it's to DIE for."
Man was she honest.
When I bit into it, I wished I WAS dead.
"Unusual texture," and "Smoky Flavor," bring on all new meanings.
Though the Fair stands for adventure and trying new things...
I think next year I'll stick to Funnel Cake.
This is Roman on his first try getting a bite of the gator down. Though it was unsuccessful, at least it was in his mouth longer than the second try.
There was a really cool show with these cute seals. I could believe how well they were trained.
It made me feel like a failure with my dogs.
I wish when the song, "I like Big Butts," came on, Boldie would start shaking his butt. Or that we could start a Congo line in our living room like the one above.
Where did I go wrong?
Of course Millie is smiling, look who's holding her....
This is the Beatles Tribute Band, Imagine. They played a free concert the night we were at the fair. We have been lucky enough to see them twice in two weeks! If any of you know Roxanne, she is obsessed with the Beatles so it was a good birthday present to see them twice in her birthday month!
This is Danny Burt. He is the drummer, aka Ringo Starr, and one of Ricker's best High School buddies. They traveled all across the country right after their missions doing odd jobs. We met him after the first show we saw this month. It was fun to meet one of my dad's old friends. He is a very talented musician. His drumming and singing was definitely impressive.
Roman and Michelle enjoying Imagine.
Millie, can you say, "Diet Coke?"
Next time you see her you should ask her.
Because she can...
I know I shouldn't have taken this pic!!! But you have to admit it's a little funny.
Its always a good time at the fair!
The Beatle's Concert was the perfect way to end our evening.
Danny said his first time to the Fair was a success and he definitely wants to go back next year.
That is, if we don't have to eat anymore Gator-on-a-stick.
I don't blame him!
