We went to the Pima County Fair the week before last. To save money we pre-bought each of the boys a pass for 10 rides, from Fry’s. The passes cost 10 bucks each. We went the day you could get in with 2 cans of food per person instead of paying 8 bucks per person.
I used my iPhone for all of the pics, because I didn’t feel like lugging my big camera around.
Jeremia and Keegan went off by themselves for most of the time we were there. They rode all of the big rides while Der and I ushered Ami and Conrad around to the tamer rides.
The above 2 photos are the only ones I took that weren’t in the petting zoo.
I could spend all day in the petting zoo. We spent a good chunk of time in there when we first got to the fair and then again before we left. It’s free and always has a ton of cute baby animals. If stealing wasn’t bad, I totally would’ve smuggled some of those critters out, under my shirt. Damn morals, always get in the way.
This baby goat could have easily come home with us.
Derek was smitten with the baby goats too.
Ami wished he had more arms so he could pet more animals at a time. That chicken stayed on the pigs back for a long time.
There’s a chicken under all those feathers, I promise.
There were 2 wallabies in there. They are soft and fast. I had to be quick with the camera to get this shot. The wallaby was washing his hands in the water dish.
That’s a llama and an alpaca. The alpaca stuck to his llama friend like glue. Baby goats would come and jump on the llama. He tolerated it for a moment or two then would shoo them off. It was quite a funny show.
These 2 ducks are called Indian Running Ducks. Not only do they stand straight up, but when they run it’s practically synchronized.
They love each other. In fact when Ami picked one up the other became frantic and started crying for his friend.
I want a pair! Seriously! I did some research and they not only make great pets, but their egg production rivals most chickens. I call that a win-win. I don’t know when I will get a chance to adopt and or buy some, but it will happen. That’s a promise.
