We went to the animal fair; the birds and the beasts were there.

We walked down the street to the Nicollet County Fair last night. We made our way directly to the food court, claimed a table and started sampling. Ella liked the fries with lots of ketchup.
My favorite part of the fair is the petting zoo. You can buy a handful of kibble to feed the goats and donkeys but I think by evening, they were full as they didn't show much interest.
Tiffany walked aloong with us and participated enthusiastically in the food trials. She thought the cheese curds were the best.
Goats, donkeys, llamas. Ella liked to pick up handfuls of poop-laden straw. Thank God for Handi-wipes.
The unwashed masses. The motley crew. (Hey, wait a minute...we were there.) This ain't all of 'em either because the demo derby was going on right behind us and all the mullets were in there.
Ella overcome with joy, danced around the tent pole. See that tummy? Lots of fries, an icey, some chips, and a carmel apple. The girl likes fair food!
Oh, I forgot the lemonade. She learned how to drink from a straw.
Ella and her Nana had a good time at the fair.

Larry and Annie left a few minutes ago to walk down to the fair and see the "amnals", so when I checked your blog, it made me laugh to see your photos of Ella at the fair. Larry can't wait for Hannah and Lil G to take in the sights. I'm glad you didn't get into legal trouble by allowing Ella to eat cheese curds.
